Description

This 2014 $20 fine silver coin was issued to celebrate Canada’s rich biodiversity, and highlights the animal kingdom’s family bonds with endearing images of Canada’s baby animals. The image features a young beaver kit with its mother in its natural habitat. Mintage is limited to just 7,500 coins.  The coin is struck in .9999 fine silver and weighs just over one ounce.  GST/HST exempt. 


The Design:

This semi-nocturnal animal has a flat, paddle-shaped tail and webbed feet that gives it excellent swimming capabilities, alongside superior underwater vision and a layer of fat which insulates it against the cold Canadian water. Seen here, the young kit and his mother work industriously on the banks of a Canadian river, the beaver’s distinct teeth on full display as it chews on a branch, his flat tail stirring the water beside him. Selective, stunning colouring on the beaver and on the balsam poplar tree leaves give this coin an artful air.
