From its natural beauty to the vitality of its artistic and cultural communities, Canada’s spirit is again captured on exciting new collector coins from the Royal Canadian Mint. Majestic bald eagles, iconic caribou, a haunting barn owl and a fall canopy of maple trees complement a new perspective on Canadian contemporary art and the Chinese zodiac’s Year of the Horse in celebrating the many layers of Canada’s heritage. These new products can now be ordered from the Mint.
“Nature, art and culture have long shaped Canadian identity and the Royal Canadian Mint is always proud to find new ways to celebrate these themes on our world-renowned collector coins,” said Ian E. Bennett, President and CEO of the Royal Canadian Mint.
The Mint’s latest release concludes with the O Canada series’ tribute to the iconic caribou, featured on a $5 pure gold coin, and $10 and $25 fine silver coins.
