This 2015 $20 fine silver coin is part of a North American Sportfish series, and features a walleye. 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 Design:

The design by Curtis Atwater presents a portrait of a walleye in pursuit of its prey.  Facing the viewer, the fish lunges, sharp teeth, mouth, eyes and dorsal fin are showcased as its tail propels it forward. Edge Lettering:  This coin includes special edge lettering that shows the coin's metal weight and purity: "9999 Fine Silver 1 oz 9999 Argent pur 1 oz".  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.

About the Walleye:

The walleye is a torpedo shaped fish with colourings that can range from dark olive brown to yellowish gold with flecks marking its side. The walleye can be told apart by the dark marking at the rear base of its dorsal fin and the white patch on the lower tip of its tail. The walleye's body is covered with rough scales, and has small, sharp bones that protrude out around its gills. The walleye have a low light vision and are sensitive to brightness. They generally usually feed in shallow water at dawn and dusk. During the day, they hide out in the shadows of the weeds.
