European and Asian settlers began arriving in Vancouver (British Columbia) in the 1860’s, lured by gold and lumber. When the transcontinental railway arrived in 1887, Vancouver soon evolved into a metropolitan centre.
During the 20th century, Vancouver was the busiest seaport in Canada, exporting more cargo than any other port in North America. Today, the city offers a rich and diversified economy, bolstered by the third-largest film production centre in North America that has earned it the nickname “Hollywood North”. Vancouver’s quality of life is considered among the highest in the world.
Reverse: This coin features the distinctive five-sail design of Canada Place on Vancouver’s waterfront, with the foothills of the Coast Mountains in the background.
Citius, Altius, Fortius (Faster, Higher, Stronger)
These three words, comprising the motto of the Olympic movement, encourage the athlete in all of us to give our best during competition, and to view this effort as its own victory.
