The great horned owl (Bubo virginianus), also known as the tiger owl, is an extremely adaptable bird with a vast range and is the most widely distributed true owl in North, Central and South America. Its primary diet are rabbits and hares, rats, mice and voles, although it freely hunts any a nimal it can overtake. As Canada's most common bird of prey, the great horned owl is a symbol of power and agility, with unique features that lend themselves beautifully to this engraved portrait.

Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Emily Damstra, your coin features a faithfully engraved portrait of a great horned owl descending upon its prey. Swooping down on its broad outstretched wings, this powerful owl keeps its yellow-eyed gaze steady and sharp talons ready in anticipation of capturing its latest meal. This close view allows the viewer to glimpse the owl's features that have made it a fabled storybook creature—from the pointed ear-like tufts on its head to the short bill, and its distinctively patterned plumage. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Packaging:

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint red lacquered case with black beauty box!
