The sweeping Canadian wilderness is a gift that our nation loves to celebrate. The seemingly endless nature spanning between three oceans is a source of many wonders. Using a large 50 mm silver canvas, the design on this 2019 $30 two ounce fine silver coin has been fashioned by award-winning Canadian wildlife artist W. Allan Hancock. Mintage is limited to just 2,500 coins. GST/HST exempt.
Strokes of great silvery wings carry the snowy owl over the boundless landscape. It is a gorgeous bird, native to Canada’s Arctic regions. One can easily recognize it by that piercing amber stare, fluffy chest and, most notably, a thick coat of snow-white feathers. Down below, a duo of greater white-fronted geese glides across peaceful waters, accompanied by nothing more than the ripples of their reflection. An overlay of 24 karat gold adds to the glow and reflection. The obverse includes the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
