1/25 Ounce Pure Gold Coin - Peregrine Falcon (2011)
Majesty in air - stunning coin in 99.99% pure gold.
The peregrine Falcon is one of the most breathtaking
birds of prey, diving more than 300 km/h to strike
its prey. It is increasingly common in urban settings,
having adopted tall buildings as cliff top nesting sites.
Its near-extinction sparked the ban of DDT chemicals
and clearly illustrates the impact of human activity
on the environment.

Celebrated First Nation’s artist Corrine Hunt has brought her distinctive vision of traditional Kwakwaka’wakw and Tlingit forms to create these special-edition collectibles. Every design is visual poetry that gives the time-honoured traditions of conservation and respect a contemporary voice with powerful lines and well-honed economy in composition.
2011 is the International Year of Forests—a time to reflect on the significant role the wilderness plays in reducing global warming and preserving the earth’s environmental balance.
