This striking 99.99% gold coin boasts a unique, graphic depiction of the osprey, a sea-dwelling bird of prey that in 1994 was declared the provincial bird of Nova Scotia. The osprey can be found in a wide variety of habitats (and on almost every continent) with the only stipulation being a nearby body of water providing an adequate supply of fish, which makes up a whopping 99% of this bird's diet. The powerful, regal osprey has enjoyed various instances of mythological and symbolic tributes, including a widely-held medieval belief that fish were so mesmerized by the osprey that they turned belly-up in surrender when its shadow fell over them. Seen here with its intense, focused eyes and its long, knife-like feathers, the ferocity and power of this sea-bird is palpable. Weighing in at 1/25th of an ounce of pure gold and a limited mintage of 7,500, this coin is sure to be a favourite amongst collectors. Multidimensional engraving and a polished-to-proof-perfection surface make this an impressive gift for any nature lover you're shopping for.
