Description

This $20 coin features the iconic Canadian beaver, double struck in just over one ounce of pure silver.  Mintage of this popular design is limited to 8,500 coins.  As a pure silver coin struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is GST/HST exempt.


The Design:

features a large beaver stands amid the leaves and grasses lining the bank of a waterway, hard at work chewing the trunk of a tree with its sharp incisors. The beaver stands on its webbed back paws, counterbalanced by its large flat tail, holding the tree trunk with its sharp-clawed dexterous front paws. The beaver is presented in profile, its small left ear and eye, snubbed black nose, sharp teeth, and oily waterproof fur rendered in fine detail. In the background, backed by dense forest, one of the beaver’s wooden structures rises from the middle of a small lake. It is engraved with the word “CANADA,” the date “2013,” and the face value of “20 DOLLARS.” 



About the Beaver:

Although the beaver became an official symbol of Canada in 1975, its use as a symbol of this land goes back to the country’s earliest roots. In fact, a beaver appears on the first coat of arms associated with the land now known as Canada, dating back to the early 1620s.
