Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Found in the waters of the Pacific, Arctic and Atlantic oceans, and a wealth of rivers and lakes in between, Canada’s salmonid species are a powerful symbol of the wild and a valued part of our natural heritage. This fine silver coin serves as a timeless showcase of the sockeye salmon, which is a revered icon of Canada’s Pacific Coast region.

This $20 coin is 99.99% pure silver, with a diameter of 40 millimetres and a nominal metal weight of 31.39 grams. The reverse design by Canadian artist Curtis Atwater features an engraved depiction of a sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) during its journey upstream to spawning grounds. The detailed background offers a glimpse of the unspoiled beauty of Canada’s Pacific Coast region, where trees line a lakeshore. Dorsal fins appear on the water’s surface, as does the humped back of the male sockeye in the foreground. Selective colour recreates the scarlet and green colouring it is known for, while the underwater view allows for a glimpse at its unique profile with hooked jaw as it swims just above the gravel that lines this shallow area.

Larger than your average 1 oz. silver coin! The coin’s 40-mm size offers a bigger canvas that allows a more detailed portrait of the mighty sockeye salmon in a natural setting, in one of the many lakes found in Canada’s Pacific Coast region.
