Description Technical Specs Extended Information
The 5th coin in the Royal Canadian Mint's exciting new O Canada sub series focusing on iconic Canadian animals, this beautiful coin celebrates one of Canada's most fascinating marine species'the orca.

This coin is certified to be 99.99% silver with a diameter of 38 millimetres and a metal weight of 31.39 grams The reverse design by Canadian artists Pierre Leduc presents an adult female orca and her young calf swimming near a rocky outcropping on the ocean floor. The mother's distinctive rounded rostrum (snout) and light markings are presented with expert engraving, highlighting characteristic light spots above the orca's eye, on the lower jaw, and at the midpoint of her body both at her belly and behind her dorsal fin. Her powerful tail bends to propel her through the water, its bright underside visible. Bubbles rise from the blowhole atop her head. Beside her the young calf, that bears the same markings as its mother, swims comfortably, bubbles also rising from its blowhole. In the foreground of the image we see a rocky outcropping from the ocean floor populated by various sea grasses. Stylized line-work and expert engraving perfectly capture the sense of depth and buoyancy of the underwater image.
