Far above the arctic tundra and the subarctic coniferous forests of the northern hemisphere, the snow falcon is at home. With its outstretched wings, the largest species of falcon has an imposing appearance, and one or two have surely flown over the location of the Royal Canadian Mint in Ottawa. Perhaps it was this impressive sight that inspired the artists at the mint to dedicate a coin of its own to the snow falcon.
The picture side of the 1.5 oz Snow Falcon coin shows a snow falcon in flight (incidentally, it can reach speeds greater than those of the peregrine falcon), and as with all Canadian coins, the value side shows the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, Canada's official Head of State, along with the coin's nominal value of five Canadian dollars. As with most of the coins by the Royal Canadian Mint, this coin also bears multiple state-of-the-art security features.
The unusual and extremely detailed motif and the high purity of 999.9/1000 silver make the coin an attractive investment object for enthusiasts.
