Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
A long-standing symbol of majesty and grace, the peregrine falcon (Falco peregrinus) is one of Canada’s most powerful birds of prey. Its powerful wings allow it to reach speeds of more than 300 km/h, earning it the title of fastest animal on Earth; and when it swoops down in spectacular fashion—as depicted on this coin—the falcon’s graceful agility only adds to a commanding presence that leaves little doubt of its hunting prowess. A commanding wildlife portrait that conveys all of the power and agility of one of Canada’s most powerful birds of prey.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Emily S. Damstra features a powerful peregrine falcon (Falco peregrinus) in flight on outstretched wings. Expert engraving recreates its striking appearance, its dark head standing in contrast to the striking barred plumage that is characteristic of this bird species. There is little doubt of the falcon’s agility and formidable hunting abilities as it swiftly swoops down and assumes a mid-air attack position, its sharp talons spread out and ready to seize its prey. The reverse also features the engraved words “CANADA” and “5 OZ 9999 Au”, a face value of “500 DOLLARS” and the year “2017”.

This powerful celebration of Canada’s wild beauty makes for an outstanding addition to any Canadiana-, bird- or nature-themed collection.
