Poppy

Between 1914 and 1918 over 650,000 Canadian men and women fought to protect the peace and freedom our country enjoys today. Of those, more than 66,000 gave their lives and another 170,000 would be wounded. Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae, a Canadian medical officer during the First World War, was responsible more than any other for the adoption of the poppy as a symbol of remembrance in Canada and the Commonwealth. McCrae was also the author of the famous war memorial poem In Flanders Fields.

Snowboarding

Snowboarding is the sport of riding a large flat ski downhill over snow and was originally derived from the idea of a surfboard. While first making an appearance in the 1960s, the sport became wildly popular in the 1980s. Snowboarding made its Olympic debut at the 1998 Winter Games in Nagano, with Canada's Ross Rebagliati winning the first gold medal ever in this discipline. There are three snowboard categories for both men and women in the Olympic Winter Games: halfpipe, parallel giant slalom and snowboard cross.

Freestyle Skiing

Started by skiers who were looking for a more creative way to express themselves and compete at the highest levels, the first Freestyle skiing competition was held in New Hampshire in 1966. The sport made its Olympic debut as a demonstration sport two decades later at the Calgary 1988 Winter Games. The Freestyle discipline of Moguls was accepted as an official medal sport at the Albertville 1992 Winter Games, followed by Aerials at the 1994 Winter Olympic Games in Lillehammer - where, in the moguls competition, Jean-Luc Brassard won the first Olympic gold medal ever by a Canadian male in a skiing event.

Figure Skating

Olympic figure skating has four disciplines: men's and ladies' singles, pairs and ice dance. The sport first appeared on indoor ice rinks at the London 1908 Olympic Games with events for pairs and singles. Ice dancing joined the Olympic Winter Games in 1976, when the Games were held in Innsbruck, Austria. Canada's first figure skating Olympic gold medal was won at the 1948 Winter Olympic Games in St. Moritz, Switzerland by Barbara Ann Scott, who captured the ladies' singles title.

Bobsleigh

Designed by Canadian artist Glenn Green of Vancouver, BC, the bobsleigh circulation coin features a four member bobsleigh team and their sled in the centre, a stylized maple leaf and the words ‘Vancouver 2010'. The three Olympic Winter Games sliding sports are bobsleigh, skeleton and luge. All three grew out of the practice of using a sled or toboggan — a light, narrow wooden platform on runners — to slide on snow or ice. The four-man bobsleigh was on the program of the first Olympic Winter Games in 1924, in Chamonix, France. The two-man bobsleigh event joined the Olympic Games program in 1932. Women began competing in bobsleigh for the first time in 2002, at the Salt Lake City Olympic Winter Games.
