Big Canadian Dollar Coin

According to the plaque: "To mark Canada's 125th Birthday, the Royal Canadian Mint invited Canadians to submit special designs for the one dollar coin. Churchbridge artist Rita Swanson submitted the winning design from among thousands of entries, thus gaining for the Town the honour of 'Artistic Birthplace' of the design. The Town of Churchbridge has gained authorization from the Royal Canadian Mint to reproduce Rita Swanson's design in this monument."
