Product Description

Canada: 2017 $30 Flora and Fauna of Canada - 2 oz. Pure Silver Coin

Finish: Proof

Weight: 62.69

Mintage: 4000

Design: 

Designed by Canadian artist Steve Hepburn, your coin features a powerfully symbolic collage of flora and fauna species that are commonly associated with Canada's provinces and territories. The rotating design allows for a continuous view of these natural icons, which speak of the diversity of life across our great land and in our skies. 

Beneath the engraved word "CANADA" are precision-engraved depictions of the following birds and animals (clockwise): a snowy owl (Quebec); the caribou (Newfoundland and Labrador); the Plains bison (Manitoba); the common raven (Yukon); a Canadian Inuit dog (Nunavut); the rock ptarmigan (Nunavut); the black-capped chickadee (New Brunswick); the white-tailed deer (Saskatchewan); the gyrfalcon (Northwest Territories); the common loon (Ontario); the osprey (Nova Scotia); the Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep (Alberta); the great horned owl (Alberta); the blue jay (Prince Edward Island); the spirit bear (British Columbia); and the Atlantic puffin (Newfoundland and Labrador). 

Moving towards the centre, these wildlife icons are harmoniously grounded by a wreath of floral and arboreal emblems (l-r): the blue flag iris (Quebec); the prairie crocus (Manitoba); the fireweed (Yukon); the western red lily (Saskatchewan); the balsam fir (New Brunswick), which is positioned between the chickadee and the ptarmigan; the mountain avens (Northwest Territories); the eastern white pine (Ontario); the mayflower (Nova Scotia); the lady's slipper (Prince Edward Island); and the Pacific dogwood (British Columbia). 

At the centre of it all, a maple leaf is struck to anchor the circular collage and represent a nation's strong sense of identity and pride. The reverse also features the engraved face value "30 DOLLARS" and the year "2017".

Packaging: The coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
