Swoop in on this great deal for the 2015 1 oz Canadian Silver Red Tailed Hawk from the Royal Canadian Mint's Birds Of Prey series! This is the third release in the this 4-coin series of .9999 fine silver bullion coins, following the Peregrine Falcon and the Bald Eagle. This stunning 1-ounce silver coin is legal tender, designated with a face value of 5 Dollars, which guarantees its weight and purity by the Canadian government. The series has especially appealed to collectors, as each issue is limited to just 1,000,000 coins minted.
The reverse design features a majestic yet intimidating Red-tailed hawk as it descends toward its prey. With wings spread, the hawk's beak is parted, indicating it is screeching loudly as it leads with its talons. The detail of the great bird's feathers is exquisite, with every intricate ruffle visible in the relief. The issuing country "CANADA" is placed along the top rim, while the purity "9999" appears to the left of the hawk. "FINE SILVER 1 OZ ARGENT PUR" curls along the bottom rim, while the artist's initials "ED" (for Emily Damstra) is also found to the left of the main image.
On the obverse, we find Susanna Blunt's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II facing right. Her Majesty is shown in a pearl necklace, with her royal crown absent. The Queen's name runs along the top portion of the rim, while the denomination "5 DOLLARS" and the year-date "2015" are inscribed along the bottom rim.
While there are many remarkable creatures in nature to admire, the wise and independent spirit of large birds of prey has captivated the human imagination for millennia. It is no surprise that many nations use an eagle or hawk as a national symbol. Not only do these 2015 Canada 1 oz Red Tailed Hawk silver coins feature a popular theme that is artfully executed, they also offer investors the chance to add 1 troy oz of extra-pure .9999 fine silver to their holdings. Even better, these coins are limited to a worldwide mintage of just 1,000,000, so get yours before our inventories are depleted!
