This coin is exceptionally thick, and is the fourth release in the 1.5 ounce series of coins featuring wildlife of the Canadian Arctic.
The obverse is struck with the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and carries a higher face value of CAD 8 to reflect the increased silver content of the coin over a regular 1 oz coin.
The reverse features a falcon in mid flight. Falcons are able to fly at high speeds due to the shape of their wings. They are one of the few birds of prey that kill with their beak, and not their feet like hawks and eagles.
These coins make a wonderful addition for both collectors and investors alike. They are the same diameter as standard issue RCM silver coins, but 50% thicker. Orders your today.
In multiples of 15 these coins will be shipped in a plastic tube. In multiples of 300 these coins will be shipped in a monster box.
