Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
In a continuing celebration of the family bonds found throughout the animal kingdom, Canada’s baby animals are beautifully depicted in a series of coins that feature selective colour over engraving. This fine silver coin depicts one of Canada’s most identifiable creatures, the raccoon (Procyon lotor), and the strong bond that exists between a mother and her young.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Trevor Tennant depicts a young raccoon alongside its mother on a summer evening in their wetland habitat. As the sunset casts a golden glow upon the water in the background, this raccoon family begins its nocturnal activities. Both raccoons are beautifully rendered with fine detailed engraving that captures their soft expressions and the texture of their fur. A three-quarter profile provides a magnificent view of the young raccoon’s features, while selective colouring brings to life its grey-brown fur and distinctive markings—particularly its dark-coloured eye mask and ringed tail. The adult raccoon stands to the right of her young, ever attentive to any signs of danger as the kit is poised on a rock along the water’s edge, near the green vegetation that provides shelter for some of the aquatic creatures that sustain them in the wild. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

A wonderful addition to any Canadiana- or nature-themed collection.
