Description

Based on its initial collector response, the 2013 “O Canada” coin series is likely to be one of the most sought after and difficult to obtain modern collections from the Royal Canadian Mint.  Subscriptions for all twelve coins sold out from the Mint almost immediately, and single coins can be extremely difficult to find.  This is the tenth coin in the 12 coin series celebrating our national identity and featuring some of Canada’s most popular images and icons. Total mintage for each is limited to 40,000.


The Design:

This is the highest quality produced by the Royal Canadian Mint, double struck in pure silver with a near flawless matte proof finish and a weight of just over half an ounceThis $10 silver coin portrays a side view of a powerful breaching Orca. This massive sea mammal is outside of the water with the exception of its tail. In the background we see the Northwest Pacific coast with its rocky shoreline and tall evergreens. The reverse image is framed with a border engraved with the word "CANADA," the date "2013," the face value of "10 DOLLARS," and a stylized orca tail fin.
