The Royal Canadian Mint has created an exhibit to be displayed in Vancouver during the Olympic and Paralympic Games. It will feature the 2010 medals, special edition circulation coins and a solid gold bar. The display runs the length of the Games.

Portraits on the Street will line Vancouver’s Railspur Alley with images of athletes from January 28 to March 22. The location is just steps from the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design.

The nation’s capital will also be getting in on the action. In lieu of a permanent venue for the Portrait Gallery of Canada, [sigh] Portraits on the Ice will display images to entertain skaters on the Rideau Canal.
