Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
As Canada approaches its 150th anniversary in July of 2017, the Royal Canadian Mint has introduced a coin series that showcases Canada’s iconic flora, fauna, landscapes and landmarks, with one coin for each province and territory. “Wild Swift Fox and Pups” is the tenth coin in the series, and represents the province of Saskatchewan.
The coin is double dated 1867-2017 with a $10 denomination and weighs just over one half ounce of pure silver. The mintage is limited to 25,000. As a pure silver coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint, this coin is HST/GST exempt.
Based on a photograph captured by Canadian photographer John E. Marriott, the reverse features vibrant colour over the detailed engraved image of swift fox in the open prairie landscape. There, amid the mixed-grass vegetation that dots the landscape near Saskatchewan’s Grasslands National Park of Canada, a pup faces the viewer as it attempts to climb onto its mother’s back. The young fox’s paws are crossed over, adding to its air of innocence; meanwhile, the mother stares out from the coin’s surface towards the viewer—this allows for a close view of the facial features and the patterned colouring of the fox’s fur, along with a glimpse of this prairie resident’s famously bushy tail. The reverse also features the engraved word “CANADA” and the dates “1867-2017” to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Confederation.
