Ideal gift for someone who loves fishing! Order yours today!

Every year, anglers wait impatiently for the fast, action-packed fishing and spectacular aerial acrobatics of the sockeye salmon run. This coin features a male sockeye swimming just above the gravel of its shallow spawning grounds, selectively enhanced with its distinctive scarlet and green colour.

Found in the waters of the Pacific, Arctic and Atlantic oceans, and a wealth of rivers and lakes in between, Canada's salmonid species are a powerful symbol of the wild and a valued part of our natural heritage. This fine silver coin serves as a timeless showcase of the sockeye salmon and is a revered icon of Canada's Pacific Coast region.

A wonderful addition to your wildlife-themed collection, and the perfect gift for any avid fishing enthusiast! Order today!

Special features:
  • Final coin in an unforgettable 3-coin series that celebrates Canada's indigenous big fish species, which are a revered part of our nation's rich biodiversity!
  • Selective colour and finishing technology beautifully enhance this engraved portrait of the sockeye salmon as it completes its upstream migration.
  • LARGER THAN YOUR AVERAGE 1 OZ. SILVER COIN! The coin's 40-mm size offers a bigger canvas that allows a more detailed portrait of the mighty sockeye salmon in a natural setting, in one of the many lakes found in Canada's Pacific Coast region.
  • 99.99% PURE SILVER COIN!
  • Your coin is GST/HST exempt with a limited mintage worldwide.

About the Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Curtis Atwater, your coin features an engraved depiction of a sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) during its journey upstream to spawning grounds. The detailed background offers a glimpse of the unspoiled beauty of Canada's Pacific Coast region, where trees line a lakeshore. Dorsal fins appear on the water's surface, as does the humped back of the male sockeye in the foreground. Selective colour recreates the scarlet and green colouring it is known for, while the underwater view allows for a glimpse at its unique profile with hooked jaw as it swims just above the gravel that lines this shallow area.

Packaging:

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