An eye-catching portrait of a beloved Canadian icon! Order today!

For many Canadians, the common loon (Gavia immer) is synonymous with summer evenings spent by the lake, where its wavering call embodies the independent spirit of the Canadian wilderness. The much-celebrated Canadian icon strikes a pre-flight pose on the reverse, where a mix of vibrant colour and cutting-edge engraving capture the natural beauty of the loon in its habitat.

An ideal gift for someone who enjoys the common loon and nature! Order today!

Special features:
  • A NATURAL ODE! It’s a dual celebration! The pride-stirring image captures the majesty of the common loon on one of Canada’s many beautiful lakes.
  • A SPLASH OF COLOUR! An idyllic aquatic scene comes to life through the combined effect of colour and engraved elements, which add texture and depth to this enchanting wildlife portrait.
  • MIRROR-LIKE FINISH! The coin’s mirror-like finish is a design element, too: it mimics the luminous, reflective nature of the water on a bright sunny day.
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins. Most of these are serialized certifications, meaning that each certificate is given a unique number, starting at 1.
  • LOW MINTAGE: Only 7,500 coins will be made available worldwide. Hurry and order yours today before they are all gone!
  • 99.99% PURE SILVER COIN! Your coin is GST/HST exempt!
Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Arnold Nogy presents a portrait of a common loon (Gavia immer) on a Canadian lake, where selective colour adds a beautiful vibrancy to the aquatic plants. Spreading its wings, the loon rises high up on the surface of the water with neck outstretched, which provides an unfettered view of its strikingly patterned plumage. As the loon prepares to take flight, the engraved ripples mimic the lake’s reflective surface on a sunny summer day.

Did you know…
  • The common loon is a beloved summer resident of every Canadian province and territory—in fact, Canada provides the breeding grounds for 95% of the world’s population!
  • Calm winds make it more challenging for a common loon to take flight; without a good breeze, the loon has to run much farther to gain enough speed for take-off.
  • A loon is able to fly at an average speed of 120 km/h, and generally follows a direct flight path to its destination.
  • Like the image on the coin’s reverse, a loon also rises up and flaps its wings after a good preening session! This daily maintenance is necessary to keep each feather properly aligned and in good condition—in fact, the loss of just a few feathers can dramatically impede the loon’s flight ability.
  • A body shake or wing flap is also a type of stretch movement. In addition, both young and adults will extend or stretch one leg above the water.
Packaging:

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

My daughter often sends me U.S. coins, uncirculated, as gifts. I bought the Canadian coins for her as a gift because they are unique and beautifully colored.
