The first $5 gold coin in the Royal Canadian Mint’s exciting O Canada series focusing on iconic Canadian images, this beautiful coin celebrates the rich history and symbolism associated with the Canadian beaver. The iconic image of the beaver reaches back to Canada's earliest roots. Mintage is limited to 4,000. HST/GST exempt.


The Design:

Your coin was designed by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc and features a detailed portrait of a beaver. Viewed in profile from its right side, the beaver's face fills the central field. The animal's distinctive small ears, eyes, and nose—all adapted for underwater living—rise above the water in which the beaver is partially immersed. The animal's mat of thick, well-groomed fur and whiskers are rendered in fine detail. Its clawed forepaws limberly clutch a small branch from a tree, which the beaver eagerly chews for sustenance. Framing the reverse imageis an outer band featuring the word "CANADA," the date "2013," and the facevalue of "5 DOLLARS," as well as a small stylized beaver paw print symbol.
