The beaver is one of Canada's most beloved and iconic animals, one that is forever tied to Canada's early history. Known for its persistence, resourcefulness and hard work, the beaver has endeared itself to Canadians. Now, the Royal Canadian Mint pays tribute to this industrious animal and its admirable qualities with this selectively coloured coin.

A beautiful design featuring the iconic beaver highlighted in colour in a 1 oz. fine silver design. Order yours today before they're all gone!

Special features:
•   The use of selective colouring enhances the reverse design's finely detailed engraving and exemplifies the Royal Canadian Mint's internationally renowned melding of minting and artistry.
•   Mintage is limited to 7,500 worldwide.
•   A striking addition to any Canadiana- or nature-themed collection.
•   Crafted in 99.99% pure silver, your coin is also GST/HST exempt.

Coin design:
Designed by Canadian artist John Mardon, your coin depicts a beaver (Castor canadensis) in its natural environment. The beaver's brown-coloured fur can be seen in greater detail thanks to the use of selective colouring , which showcases the subtle variations in the fur's hue. Its famously flat, almost paddle-like tail is partially submerged beneath the blue lake water as the beaver stands on the coarse shoreline upon its webbed hind paws. At the water's edge, the beaver is busily using its razor-sharp incisors to cut down a tree. And yet, had the beaver remained hidden underwater, the many gnawed tree stumps that dot the engraved landscape in the background would serve as proof of the animal's presence in the area.

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.

          I really liked the way the Beaver was depicted and the way the colours and their tones 'meld'. Sometimes people forget to take that into consideration in these things.

          On the whole, my bank balance will never be the same if RCA keeps turning out such attractive coins.

            The beaver represents tenacity, industriousness, qualities necessary to keep developing our great country. Without the beaver any Canadian coin collection is incomplete.

            I normally don't collect painted or colored coins but the royal Canadian mintdoes such a wonderful job I make an exception when I see a coin that in my opinion is both beautiful and unique. This coin even though it's expensive fits my criteria, in other words I saw it and had to have it once I had it in my hands I was very happy with my decision to purchase it. Just wish it was a little less expensive
