Gary Taxali Quarters

“Toronto contemporary visual artist and award-winning illustrator Gary Taxali has collaborated with the Royal Canadian Mint to create a series of six celebratory coins to feature in its 2012 gift sets, covering the themes of Birthday, Wedding, Tooth Fairy, New Baby, O Canada and Holiday (which will be released later this year). The Taxali-designed coins are a departure from the Mint’s usual coin designs, with a edgy, vintage yet contemporary style. The words “25 Cents,” “2012” and “Canada” are depicted on the coins in Taxali’s font called Chumply. This is the first time the Mint has allowed an artist to change the typography on coins”.
