This 99.99% pure silver coin features a unique shape that follows the contour of our map of Canada on the reverse. CANADA'S WILDLIFE HAS TAKEN OVER! Our map of Canada gets its inspiration from nature, with an iconic Canadian bird or mammal forming each province and territory. Colours (red, black, and white) have been applied to the finely engraved elements for a more illustrative style. A FUN WAY TO CELEBRATE CANADA!It's not just about geography! This design captures some of Canada's spirit, too. Instead of traditional portraits of these animals, the fun-filled design plays up some of their features, traits or behaviours-like the gyrfalcon extending its wing to form part of the Arctic archipelago, or the Kermode bear that is slumped over to form the Kootenay Rockies with its nose. The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.
