The art comes from Marcello Matere, a current vancouver resident, who is behind a lot of the packaging art since armada. Sarah coloured it.

O.k. then, that will teach me to do my research. I'm glad the Canadian mint actually has a rationale for this that includes how it is linked to Canada. I may have to get it now.

I can't find her name linked to these coins anywhere...
Can you cite your source? It might make the difference whether I buy them or not... thanks

Re: Royal Canadian Mint Transformers Coins

Can u imagine the serious boardroom discussions to select the subject and green light such a coin? Jim wants to do Thomas but sally wants Barbie or Paw Patrol. What about Super Mario or PAC-man? People love video games. Nah, maybe we should honour classic toys like Slinky or Monopoly with real money.

Oh, I'm in on these!

This means, though, I'm now definitely out on Haslabicron.

(...probably.)
