Designed by Canadian artist Emily Damstra, your coin depicts a red-tailed hawk (Buteo jamaicensis) in flight, in an attack position. With its wings outstretched past the design field's rim, this agile hunter keeps its eyes fixed on the ground. The hawk's hooked bill is open to let out its familiar hoarse scream as it swiftly descends from high above, its legs outstretched and sharp talons at the ready in anticipation of capturing its mammalian prey. Detailed engraving allows the viewer to see the hawk's varied plumage, from the streaked belly to the darker-coloured lines that dominate the wings and tail. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

coin arrived scratched. Poor quality control!


Coin arrived scratched, see attached picture. Poor quality controls at mint on a 13k coin with approx 5k spread over bullion? Unbelievable and unacceptable. Coin returned within 24 hrs and in fairness to Mint money was credited back in 3 working days. Still I felt very disappointed by this experience. After all this was a 13k purchase! Asked to know exactly policy on quality controls and still waiting.
