The Royal Canadian Mint 2015 $20 Fine Silver coins, North American Sportfish series, feature designs by Canadian artist Curtis Atwater, capturing the inherent characteristics of four popular North American Sportfish. This series has an extremely low mintage of just 6,500 coins, and subscriptions for complete four coin sets were sold out from the Royal Canadian Mint on the first day it was released. Double struck with the Royal Canadian MintÍs highest quality proof finish, each coin weighs just over one full ounce of .9999 fine silver. As pure silver coins issued by the Royal Canadian Mint, these coins are HST / GST exempt.

Fishermen, hunters, and nature-lovers alike will appreciate the beauty of these uncirculated coins with highly detailed images, brought to life with the Royal Canadian MintÍs world re-known quality engraving and polishing.

Largemouth Bass
This coin presents a portrait of a largemouth bass as it leaps from a lake. Its large mouth is open wide, displaying its lower jaw. The strength of the fishÍs will to fight is captured in the twist of its body and brought to life with the highly detailed engraving of its scales, fin, and the spraying water.

Northern Pike
This coin presents a portrait of a northern pike lying in ambush for prey among underwater foliage. The pike is viewed from the left side, the snout, speckled body, large jaw, and fins are rendered in detail. Its perfectly still form, in contrast to the waving leaves of the foliage, belies its ability to strike aggressively without warning as it watches stealthily for its next meal.

Walleye

This coin presents a portrait of a walleye in pursuit of its prey, characteristically, in deeper waters. Facing the viewer the fish lunges, its sharp teeth, mouth, eyes, and dorsal fin are showcased as its tail propels it forward. The realistic imagery is testament to the artistÍs careful study of his subjects in their natural habitat.

Rainbow Trout

This coin presents a life-like portrait of a 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 as it swims by a fallen branch, in a shallow, gravel-bottom river. The high-quality engraving ensures that every detail of the image is captured, as evidenced in the speckles and scales along the fishÍs skin.

Each coin can also be purchased individually.
