Canada’s silver dollar used to carry the “Voyageur” design on the obverse side. This year, a special 150 year anniversary edition, with the same design in the centre:
The original looked like this:
Those are simple iPhone shots. But proper shots of coins are taken with a macro (or as Nikon calls it, a Micro) lens, i.e. a close up lens.
And once I do that, I see something amusing. Look at the native person in the front of the canoe.
In the original, he is traveling nude:
In the re-issued coin, he is wearing a loincloth!
I can just imagine the meetings that must have happened on this subject at the Royal Mint of Canada. Though I do wonder about the political correctness aspect: why is nudity so bad?
In any case: it is only the macro lens, in my case the 100mm f/2.8, that allowed us to see this design change. Who knew?
