REFLECTION EFFECT! Special finishing techniques create the effect of a reflection on the water's surface.

There's a tremendous variety of life to be discovered throughout Canada. From its many forests and vast mountain ranges to open plains and tundra, every ecosystem is a world onto itself with its own unique blend of fauna and flora. Yet within this diversity lies one common denominator: water—the lakes, rivers, ponds and shorelines that lure animals from the cover of dense vegetation to drink, feed and even raise their young.

This exciting new series explores the unexpected delights and soul-stirring awe that can be experienced during those rare, privileged moments of observing an animal interacting with water. It is a touching moment of quiet contemplation that is beautifully expressed through each coin in this series—unparalleled masterpieces that collectors and nature enthusiasts will treasure.

About the first coin design: Grizzly Bear

Designed by Canadian artist Maurade Baynton, your coin features a beautifully engraved wildlife portrait of a mighty grizzly bear (Ursus arctos) at the water's edge. With the dense alpine forest filling the background behind it, the hungry bear has stepped beyond the rocky shores of a pond and into the water, sending a ripple of gentle waves across the mirror-like surface. The grizzly bear's characteristic hump is all the more prominent as this iconic animal lowers its head and seemingly gazes at its reflection in the water, which is beautifully recreated through careful finishing techniques.

Packaging:

Your coins are encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded wooden case.

Comments about Fine Silver 3-Coin Subscription – Reflections of Wildlife (2016):

The coins are ok, but the display case box is not very nice, the cover seems loose, and the bottom where they glue a piece of velvet black paper, and the main reason why I purchased these coin is because of the display box, it looks really nice online, but it's a different story when you received it, so disappointed, the display box should look like the case box I purchased, that hold 24 coins that's a beautiful box, that's what I was expecting.this display box for the 3 coins is poorly made..

            Comments about Fine Silver 3-Coin Subscription – Reflections of Wildlife (2016):

            I seldom write reviews but do feel the urge to do so this time. I have already received the first 2 coins in the series and am very happy with them. The pictures don't do justice to the real coins. They look so pretty on hand under light with reflection shimmering on the ripples. I normally don't go for subscription as I hate receiving coins in the plastic pouches. However, since this series only have 3 coins and they are so affordable, I don't mind getting the plastic pouches in exchange for the beautiful wooden box. It is such a steal. I am totally surprised that Mint is willing to offer this 3-coin set with the free wooden box at such affordable price point.

              Comments about Fine Silver 3-Coin Subscription – Reflections of Wildlife (2016):

              Just received the box and first coin today. I'm very pleasantly surprised compared to a few subscriptions I started in 2013 and cancelled after one coin due to poor quality and value. If you can only get one subscription this year, I suggest this be it.

              Silver is currently $15 USD per ounce and these half ounce coins are $10 face value. So you get almost exactly face value in silver, plus a box that's probably $40 by itself. The quality and size are such that I am not disappointed this time - having not had a subscription since my two above mentioned failure runs.

              For a gift you could get a little plate for the top of the solid wood box if you wanted it personalized. It's a very sturdy display with lots of space underneath for coin certificates.

                For those of us who love collecting coins, but live on a tight budget, this coin set is affordable.

                I would love to see the mint come out with another subscription set of 3 next year (maybe $35 per coin).

                The coin (I only have the first one now) is very attractive and displays well in the case.

                        Shipping will be extra for non-Master's Club members. This subscription includes a free collector case, which is a greater value than free shipping. Unfortunately, we can't offer both on this product.

                        A:

                        Hi a ... the face value of this coin is $10. For your reference, all of our product pages have a specification section on the right side. You will find the face value, weight, diameter, etc in this location.
