Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
This two ounce fine silver $30 coin features the flora and fauna of Canada. A powerful portrait of Canada through the majestic flora and fauna icons speak of the distinctiveness of each province and territory, and the natural beauty that reigns within their boundaries. With its 360-degree viewing experience, this fine silver coin brings together a selection of these natural ambassadors in one pride-provoking design that highlights the spectacular diversity of this nation as a whole. With a low mintage of just 4,000 coins, it is also likely to sell out quickly.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Steve Hepburn features a powerfully symbolic collage of flora and fauna species that are commonly associated with Canada’s provinces and territories. The rotating design allows for a continuous view of these natural icons, which speak of the diversity of life across our great land and in our skies. Beneath the engraved word “CANADA” are precision-engraved depictions of the following birds and animals (clockwise): a snowy owl (Quebec); the caribou (Newfoundland and Labrador); the Plains bison (Manitoba); the common raven (Yukon); a Canadian Inuit dog (Nunavut); the rock ptarmigan (Nunavut); the black-capped chickadee (New Brunswick); the white-tailed deer (Saskatchewan); the gyrfalcon (Northwest Territories); the common loon (Ontario); the osprey (Nova Scotia); the Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep (Alberta); the great horned owl (Alberta); the blue jay (Prince Edward Island); the spirit bear (British Columbia); and the Atlantic puffin (Newfoundland and Labrador).
Moving towards the center, these wildlife icons are harmoniously grounded by a wreath of floral and arboreal emblems (l-r): the blue flag iris (Quebec); the prairie crocus (Manitoba); the fireweed (Yukon); the western red lily (Saskatchewan); the balsam fir (New Brunswick), which is positioned between the chickadee and the ptarmigan; the mountain avens (Northwest Territories); the eastern white pine (Ontario); the mayflower (Nova Scotia); the lady’s slipper (Prince Edward Island); and the Pacific dogwood (British Columbia). At the center of it all, a maple leaf is struck to anchor the circular collage and represent a nation’s strong sense of identity and pride.

The reverse also features the engraved face value “30 DOLLARS” and the year “2017”.
