Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Though found in geographies around the globe, the Barn Owl in Canada is an endangered species whose unique physical traits and exceptional hunting skills make it an exceptional member of the owl family.

This coloured cupronickel coin has a diameter of 35 millimetres. The reverse image, designed by Canadian artist Trevor Tennant, features a painted barn owl in full flight, viewed from its left side as it flaps its broad white and gold wings, perhaps readying itself to swoop in silence on its unsuspecting prey. The owl’s left profile is rendered to stunning effect, with the side of its distinctive oval face, snubbed beak and small, piercing black eye beautifully portrayed against the sunset. Its long legs and sharp talons are held aloft below its short, square tail feathers. In the background is a wire fenced field of tall grasses flanked, in the far background, by an abandoned barn—one of the barn owl’s preferred nesting spots. The pinkish sky of sunset meets the field on the horizon.
