About the Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Trevor Tennant, your coin depicts a young raccoon alongside its mother on a summer evening in their wetland habitat. As the sunset casts a golden glow upon the water in the background, this raccoon family begins its nocturnal activities. Both raccoons are beautifully rendered with fine detailed engraving that captures their soft expressions and the texture of their fur. A three-quarter profile provides a magnificent view of the young raccoon's features, while selective colouring brings to life its grey-brown fur and distinctive markings—particularly its dark-coloured eye mask and ringed tail. The adult raccoon stands to the right of her young, ever attentive to any signs of danger as the kit is poised on a rock along the water's edge, near the green vegetation that provides shelter for some of the aquatic creatures that sustain them in the wild.

Did you know...
  • Raccoons don't quite hibernate but they do sleep longer during our cold winters; they will eat more to build up fat reserves ahead of winter's advance.
  • Raccoons are excellent swimmers—but only if they have to! They do, however, have a curious habit of dipping their food at times in water.
  • They're omnivorous, with a diet that could include berries, nuts, seeds, insects, eggs, birds, mice, fruits and vegetables; but their favourite foods include fish, crayfish, frogs, clams and snails.
  • On average, a raccoon has a life expectancy of about five years.
  • Raccoons move along the ground by walking on the entirety of their foot; but they're dextrous, allowing their toes to open shells, trashcans and even open a jar or untie a shoe!


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

No uniq nor outstanding


1st time to produce this type of baby animal coins is great. Then MINT continue to produce 2nd-set, 3rd-set coins (~10 coins) and I believe the same set coins will be expected in next 3~5 yrs. Too common! No new tech improvement, nor new design pattern, slight low mintage (5500 vs. 6000) won't help much to attract coin collectors who are more interest in: uniq/interesting topic great design

Baby Raccoon Silver Coin


This is one of my favourites from this series. It looks better in hand and I feel it ranks up there with the burrowing owl. The engraving is detailed and realistic. The adult raccoon tail is done really well. The color for the baby raccoon is bright and displays nicely. This has to be the cutest coin ever produced by the mint, the baby raccoon is adorable. The lowering of the mintage of this release to 5500 is a nice surprise. Good choice. I hope the rest of this series has the same quality as this coin. Thank you RCM.

Hi what does mintage mean thanks and lower the mintage more value


Hi Dan -mintage is the maximum number of coins we will produce. And yes, you are correct, the lower the mintage the rarer the coin and/or set. Many collectors seek out low mintage products. Products with a mintage usually come with a serialized certificate.


Is the set of Baby Animals sold out?
