This 2013 bronze proof $3 coin features an iconic rendering of a new Miss Canada allegory for modern-day Canada. Seated on the "throne" of the Canadian Shield, Miss Canada is classically dressed, wearing a crown of maple leaves, her right hand open in a welcoming gesture, and holding a staff in her left. An eagle flies overhead an image of a jumping fish. The base of the image is decorated with a garland composed of more than 25 species of Canadian leaves. The reverse is engraved with the word "CANADA," the date "2013" and the face value of "3 DOLLARS". This is the first bronze collector coin ever produced by the Royal Canadian Mint.

Miss Canada
Female allegories have long been featured on coinage around the world. Now, a powerful figure from Canada's past is making a comeback: the historic Miss Canada icon. A visual representation of national values and identity who first appeared after Confederation, Miss Canada appeared in everything from political cartoons to political advertising, literature and film. She was originally portrayed as Britannia's youthful and obedient daughter-but as Canada's role and international relationships changed over time, so too did the symbolism associated with this icon. Miss Canada was withdrawn from public use shortly after the Second World War.
