The pride of Atlantic Canada, the lobster (Homarus americanus) is brought to life in fine detail on this pure gold collectable coin. The lobster has become a cultural icon because of its importance in the area’s rich marine heritage. This nocturnal crustacean can be found crawling along the seabed of the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the Northwest Atlantic Ocean, where warmer summer temperatures draw it into shallower waters. There in this murky habitat, the lobster’s vision is able to detect movement but little else. It relies on remarkably heightened senses of taste, touch, and smell to interact with its environment.
