First coin design, the Atlantic Salmon:
Designed by Canadian artist Curtis Atwater, your coin features the Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) during its upstream journey to spawning grounds in one of the many rivers flowing through the boreal forests of Eastern Canada. In the skilfully engraved background, several migrating salmon can be seen leaping out of the fast-moving waters to ascend the rocky waterfall. Selective colour superbly highlights the salmon in the foreground, whose tail is curled up as it angles forward with great energy. Re-adapting to freshwater conditions, the mature salmon’s glistening appearance has altered from the silver of its saltwater existence to a bronze-green hue with black and reddish spots. The entirety of the design conveys a high sense of energy in this pristine outdoor setting, as water splashes out from these “jumping” fish onto the band that frames the reverse, where the word “CANADA”, the year “2016”, and the face value “20 DOLLARS” are also engraved.

Packaging:

Great salmon and Arctic char set displayed nicely with lure

5

The 1 salmon coin was a gift and I bought the rest and am very pleased with the quality and accuracy in each fish details with a nice box . The lure is a added feature but the hook is fake which I didn't realise , I would of paid more for a pure silver hook but not sharp so it won't hurt anyone . Overall I'm 100 % pleased and my cons are only suggestions if another set is made .

Absolutely beautiful coins and a very low mintage. Not only are the coins number one, the case they are in is one of the nicest I have ever received from the mint. It alone is a treasure. Well done.

Another beautiful fishing collection...

Beautiful collection. I am very eager to see the next two coins. If you haven't yet subscribed, you must! The first fish collection is brilliant, however, this one definitely did beat my standards to the maximum. The first coin "Atlantic Salmon" is very detailed, and the best part of it all, is the fact that has colour added to it. This will be a gift for my children, which will be passed on from generation to generation. Its a beautiful collectable.

Hey There's Something Fishy Here!!!

What a Refreshing set of coins to issue. Can't wait to see the Arctic Char Coin. The Colors are like picking the Fish right out of the Water. Very LIFE LIKE!!! Detail stands out perfectly to capture the physical attributes of each Specimen!! As usual you have a Colorized Coin issued with only 6500 in each. Plus again it's solid silver and that means there's an investment side to the coin. The coin relates to all who love fishing from the Beginner to the Professional Angler!!. I'm glad the Royal Canadian Mint decided to issue a series as this for all whom love FISH!! This is One Satisfied Pennsylvania Man.

I mistakenly threw out 2 of the information inserts with the pouches once I received the box. Is there any way I can get them? Artic char and Sockeye salmon

When can I order this. I'm trying and there isn't an add to cart button.

Judy

Hi Judy - the add to cart button is to the upper right side of the page.

The mintage is 5500, does this mean there are 5500 set of 3-coin sportfishing coins, i.e., 16500 total? or there are only 5500 coins total including those 3 coins? thanks.

William

Will will only mint 5,500 of each coin in the set: Coin 1: Atlantic Salmon x 5,500 Coin 2: Arctic Char x 5,500 Coin 3: Sockeye Salmon x 5,500

What and why the white "ribbon" on the sockeye salmon from the top of its head to tail?

Walt

That is the waterline. This scene captures the sockeye during the spawning season when it would be pushing upstream in shallow water. The dorsal fins and tails of these fish can often be seen breaking through the surface of the water during that season.

Josh (Product Team)

I HAVE ALL 3 COINS BUT I WAS TOLD THE BOXES AND LURE ARE NOT AVAILABLE ANY MORE. IS THIS TRUE.

BRENT

The lure and cases are still available with this subscription.
