THIRD COIN IN SERIES! Features artwork by an award-winning Canadian wildlife artist! Order today!

Strokes of great silvery wings carry the snowy owl over the boundless landscape. It is a gorgeous bird, native to Canada’s Arctic regions. One can easily recognize it by that piercing amber stare, fluffy chest and, most notably, a thick coat of snow-white feathers. As charming as this bird may be, the snowy owl is also a fearsome hunter, preying mainly on rodents and waterfowl. Down below, a duo of greater white-fronted geese unsuspectingly glides across peaceful waters. It seems as though they were accompanied by nothing more than the ripples of their reflection. However, the predator is streaking from above.

Did you know…
  • Snowy owls are among the most agile owls in the world. Their predatory nature is reinforced by particularly keen senses of sight and hearing. 
  • While a snowy owl delights in medium-sized birds such as greater white-fronted geese, its all-time favourite snack is lemmings. The fluctuations of the lemming population directly affect the numbers of snowy owls in a given region.
  • Snowy owls may be fearsome hunters, but they are also adorable lovebirds. The owls mate for life and build their nest together, where their offsprings will hatch for years to come.

Packaging:

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