Description Technical Specs Extended Information
According to Greek myth, the goddess Athena was so struck by the wise and solemn eyes of the owl, she honoured this nocturnal bird by making him her favourite amongst feathered creatures; in some First Nations cultures, it was believed that these birds were messengers between the land of the living and the dead. The list of symbolism associated with this curious bird is extensive, suggesting that the owl has captured the imagination of humans throughout history. Here, the Royal Canadian Mint immortalizes the fierce eyes of the owl with a 99.99% pure gold coin that is the first in a 3-coin series celebrating the eyes of Canadian wildlife. A symbol of northern Canada, this terrific hunter relies on its superior vision for success-this coin is expertly painted with translucent and black enamel in a manner that truly showcases their beauty. A frosted effect on the feathers enhances the eyes to a piercing glare, and a limited mintage of only 10 makes this a highly desirable collector's item. This extravagant piece will sit amongst any collection like a precious treasure.
