"The wolf, unfortunately no longer common, is here symbolic of the vastness and loneliness of Canada, and thus of our tradition and to a degree, of our present condition. Yet the wolf is not a pathetic creature."... said David A. Coleville in 1965

David A. Colville said about the dollar coin he designed :
"The Canada goose seems appropriate for the dollar since it is one of our most majestic creatures and is particularly Canadian. There are other associations with traveling over great spaces, and a kind of serene dynamic quality in this bird."

The Canada Goose, perhaps Canadas most famous bird, can travel more than 600 miles in one day flying in their famous V-shape. The 1967 dollar coin was the last true 'Silver Dollar' as they were not made of any silver content after that year.
