Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Thanks to decades of conservation work and recovery efforts, one of Canada’s most famous endangered species is making a rare comeback. The return of the peregrine falcon is at the leaf-shaped “heart” of this fine silver set, which features three familiar shaped coins that deliver a conservation-themed message of hope for Canada’s at-risk species.

On the maple leaf-shaped coin, Falco peregrinus carries a message of hope on wings that extend onto the rectangular coins. It is a tribute to both the falcon and all who helped bring it back from the brink — back to our treetops and cliffs, and even our cities, where some nesting pairs have adapted to our changing world.

The reverse image by artist David Caesar stretches across the three coins that are shaped to form Canada’s flag. The maple leaf-shaped coin is the main focal point: an engraved depiction of Falco peregrinus in flight, and whose outline mimics the shape of Canada’s most famous icon. The falcon’s wings extend onto the two rectangular-shaped bars that flank the maple leaf. The wafer on the left features a cliff-side setting that highlights the falcon population’s recovery in the wild, while the wafer on the right alludes to recent sightings in Canada’s major cities, where some breeding pairs have raised their young on the ledges of tall buildings.

A sculpted tribute to one of Canada’s fastest-moving species, whose rebounding population is proof that conservation efforts can make a difference.
