  • 2014 – $20 1 oz. Fine Silver Coin – Bald Eagle With Fish
    A day in the life of the Bald Eagle is filled with activity from dusk until dawn and beyond. From the moment it awakens, the eagle is at work—tending to its nest, soaring high, hunting, feeding its young, and taking pause to eat and rest. Now, while he is at rest, let's take a moment to study this apex hunter's fearsome countenance. Dominated by a massive, sharply curved yellow beak, the adult eagle's distinctive head is covered to the neck with long, smooth white feathers. The arrangement of the feathers above its large golden eyes gives the adult eagle a frowning appearance that is perhaps a factor in the bird's symbolic associations with power. The most important attribute on this iconic head, however, is the eyes. It is this gifted vision that empowers the eagle to spot relatively small prey underwater or in grassy plains while soaring hundreds of metres in the air—despite these prey animals' natural camouflage.

  • 2015 – 5 Cent Fine Silver Coin – The Crossed Maple Boughs
    On January 2, 1908, the opening of the Ottawa branch of the Royal Mint marked the dawn of a new era. Although the tooling continued to be crafted by Royal Mint engravers in London, coins were now being produced in Canada, for Canada, at the Sussex Drive location in Ottawa, Ont. While it was not yet made with nickel—nor did it feature the famed beaver—the crossed maple bough was the first of the 5-cent designs to be produced in the very early days of the Royal Canadian Mint. This stunning recreation of the coin design from 1911 to 1921 offers a unique look back at the history of Canada's nickel coin.

  • 2014 – $20 Fine Silver Coin – Untamed Canada : Wolverine
    The wolverine is the largest member of the Mustelidae (weasel) family. This stout animal enjoys a fearsome "tough guy" reputation. Much of the wolverine's notoriety can be attributed to its secretive ways, low population density and remote northerly range in central and western Canada. It's one of the nation's least understood animals, but as researchers continue to study the wolverine, they are discovering it is one of nature's great powerhouses. The wolverine's strength is far beyond its stature. Its powerful jaws can bite through moose tibia, and its teeth have evolved to eat frozen meat and bones. It has long, semi-retractable claws that it uses primarily for digging and climbing. And while the wolverine is known to ferociously defend its food from larger predators, it is primarily a scavenger rather than a hunter of live prey.
