      This is a great representation of Canada and the artistique talent of the staff.
      I am building a collection which I started in 1966 and keeps growing very slowly
      year after year as my income grew.
      I love the way the HARE is depicted as running.

        This is a really fantastic coin in the face-value series. The image has a real dynamism, symbolic of Canada and its vast wilds, and of course a half-ounce silver coin has a nice presence. I'd recommend this coin to anyone.

                        On this coin we are showcasing the swift arctic hare embodying the unique traits necessary for life in the Canadian Arctic. This design shows a bounding hare as it escapes a wolf in pursuit.

                      legal tender means legal tender .... which means I can spend it in an emergency short of cash situation, right? or it should mean that.
                      I'm disabled, bedridden, and have bought these type $20 for $20, before and I have used them at the store before being on a severely lame OAS & CPP disability pension.
                      I bought these for the silver purity content should our economy tank or world currencies fail due to pandemics or disasters breakdown civilization.
                      under normal circumstances can I cash them at the post offices?
                      where do I get these silver bullion coins you speak of as dollar for dollar exchangeable spendable coins?
                      ps: I have already spent much of my 50cent coins collected since childhood at various stores as needed over passed several years without question by cashiers?
