Gary Taxali has collaborated with the Royal Canadian Mint to create a series of six celebratory coins that will be featured in their 2012 gift sets. The coins cover the themes of Birthday, Wedding, Tooth Fairy, New Baby, O Canada, and Holiday.
The coins feature Taxali’s recognizable pop culture imagery infused with his retro graphic vintage style. The words “25 Cents”, “2012” and “Canada” are depicted on the coins in Gary’s famous font called “Chumply”, the first time the Mint has allowed an artist to change the typography on coins.
These will be available for order from www.mint.ca.
