Royal Canadian Mint releases 1st Canada-shaped coin



Ottawa illustrator Alisha Giroux was drawing Canada's map  one day when she realized the country's shorelines and provincial borders could be represented as animals. She turned Quebec into a snowy owl taking flight, and Ontario into a loon with its wings folded. British Columbia, meanwhile, became a spirit bear. Now the Royal Canadian Mint is using her design for its first-ever Canada-shaped coin.

The coin retails for $340.

Turing was persecuted by the British government for his homosexuality, convicted of “gross indecency” in 1952, and was chemically castrated as his punishment for having a gay relationship. Turing died by suicide in 1954. He finally received a royal pardon in 2013.
