Special features:
  • A national symbol in a quintessentially Canadian setting! This is the ninth coin in the beloved Baby Animals series, which tenderly depicts baby animals in the Canadian wilderness.
  • SELECTIVE COLOUR enhances the finely detailed engraving that showcases the baby loon in the water next to its mother, as they swim in one of Canada's many beautiful lakes.
  • 99.99% PURE SILVER COIN!
  • Your coin is GST/HST exempt with a limited mintage worldwide.

About the Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Glen Loates, your coin features selective colour over the engraved side-profile portrait of a baby loon, or chick, swimming at the edge of a lake in Algonquin Park. The brown-black downy feathers are given a soft appearance through detailed engraving as the chick splashes about in the water, flapping its wings and raising its webbed feet. The colour extends to the purple flowers and green-stemmed leaves of the pickerelweed in the foreground and behind the engraved adult female, which tenderly remains at the young loon's side during its first weeks of life.

Packaging:

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

      I'm collecting the mother and baby coins. This one- the Canadian loon- is particularly splendid. I liked the juxtaposition of colour and silver and the detail.
