Description

This premium version of the silver bullion coin has been struck in proof finish and is composed of 99.99% silver. It features what is widely considered the fastest animal on earth, the regal Peregrine Falcon (Falco perigrinus). A hunter that has been deemed at-risk by the Canadian government, it usually dwells east of the Rockies and south of the tree line. This powerful predator is rich in cultural significance-some early indigenous North American cultures used the image of the Peregrine Falcon as a symbol of "aerial (celestial) power", while in the middle ages, Western European nobility considered it a bird associated with royalty, "more armed by its courage than its claws." Portrayed on this handsome coin in a mid-air attack position, it makes a worthy addition to any Canadiana, nature-themed or bullion collection. Alternatively, this would make a remarkable gift for anyone that deserves to be rewarded for a unique display of bravery.
