The extremely popular "Birds of Prey" series from the Royal Canadian Mint ends with a flourish, as the 2015 Great Horned Owl 1 oz silver coin comes in for a landing!
The creature most often pictured when people hear the word "owl", the Great Horned Owl ranges from the Canadian Arctic to South America. Also known as "the silent tiger", it never fails to impress when seen (but never heard) swooping down from the night sky to seize its prey.
Crafted by noted wildlife artist Emily Damstra, who created all four designs in the series, the Great Horned Owl depicted on this coin has its talons extended and its wings spread wide as it intently focuses on its target. Struck from 1 troy oz of extra-fine .9999 fine silver (99.99% pure), the Great Horned Owl silver coin features frosted details on a vertically-lined background.
The obverse showcases Susanna Blunt's portrait of Elizabeth II in her role as Queen of Canada, and carries the denomination of $5 (Canadian).
Like the previous three entries in the Birds of Prey series, the 2015 Great Horned Owl 1 oz silver coin is limited to 1 million coins worldwide. Purchases of 25 coins will come in a RCM tube, and orders of 500 will come in a sturdy plastic RCM "monster box".
