1 oz 2015 Birds of Prey Series | Great Horned Owl Silver Coin
Buy with Confidence
The final release of the four coin "Birds of Prey" series, the Great horned owl is the most common owl in Canada. The reverse of the coin features a design by Canadian artist Emily Damstra of a great horned owl (Bubo virginianus) with talons outstretched about to grab it's prey.
The great horned owl does not actually have horns, but large tufts of feathers above it's ears. Owls in general kill their prey through constriction, and the talons of the great horned owl have a much greater crushing power than a human hand. The great horned owl's eyes are exceedingly large, almost as large as our own. The eyes are adapted for nocturnal hunting, with the owl preying upon most living creatures except large mammals.
The obverse features the Susanna Blunt effigy of Queen Elizabeth II and the words " Elizabeth II 5 Dollars 2015"
The reverse features an adult great horned owl descending on it's prey in a field, about to grasp it and crush it to death. Its wings and tail feathers are spread and the owl's wings are spread wider than the field of the coin allows us to see. It is surrounded by the words "Canada Fine Silver 1 oz Argent Pur 9999" and the artist's initials.
This beautifully rendered coin makes the perfect addition to any silver or wildlife collection. With a limited mintage of only 1 million coins worldwide this bullion priced coin is sure to sell quickly.
