The second coin in the Royal Canadian Mint's exciting new series featuring Canada's animal architects focuses on the orb-weaver spider and its striking web.

This silver proof coin is certified to be 99.99% proof silver with a diameter of 27 millimetres and a metal weight of 7.96 grams. The reverse design by Canadian artist Yves Berube features a painted specimen of an orb-weaver spider sub-species bearing light and dark markings on its back, body, and eight legs. The spider is viewed from the top, poised atop an embossed orb web rendered in fine detail. The image is lent dimensional detail through expert engraving. The spider occupies the upper left quadrant of the web, moving toward the central hub where it will sit in wait for its unsuspecting insect prey.
