This 2015 $20 fine silver coin is part of a North American Sportfish series, and features a Rainbow Trout. This series has an extremely low mintage of just 6500 coins, and subscriptions for complete four coin set were sold out from the Royal Canadian Mint on the first day the series was released. The coin is double struck with the Royal Canadian Mint’s highest quality proof finish, and weighs just over one full ounce of .9999 fine silver. As a pure silver coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is HST / GST exempt.

 The Design:

The design by Curtis Atwater presents a portrait of the rainbow trout in its natural habitat.  The front of its body is angled to the viewer while its tail curls behind and to the left.  It is by a fallen branch, in a shallow, gravel-bottom river. This coin includes special edge lettering that lists the coin's metal weight and purity: "9999 Fine Silver 1 oz 9999 Argent pur 1 oz".  

The Rainbow Trout:

A rainbow trout has a long, narrow body come in a variety of colours from brown and black to olive and a blue-green. Rainbow trout always have a reddish stripe down both sides of its body from head to tail. The fish’s underbelly is white and tiny black spots cover its back, sides and fins. The fish has sharp teeth on the roof of its mouth but has no lower teeth at all.
