  • 2014 – $20 Fine Silver Coin – Seven Sacred Teachings : Respect Buffalo
    Your life rides on the buffalo's back. Aboriginal people have understood this relationship since time immemorial, and have long respected the buffalo for the food, clothing and tools it provided. The fact that this great beast gave every part of its being to sustain them made the buffalo's life greater than theirs, not less. Buffalo could thrive without the people, but the people could not live without the buffalo, and they were humbled by the profound respect it showed them year after year.

  • 2014 – $20 1oz. Fine Silver Coin – River Rapids
    Algonquin Provincial Park in autumn is one of Canada's most beautiful visual treats. In the land that inspired world-renowned Canadian landscape painters Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven, nature shows itself to those who are observant. Like Thomson, many nature enthusiasts take to Algonquin's waterways and trails to experience the back country in many forms, such as camping, canoeing, and fishing, and thus reconnecting one with nature. The Algonquin Highlands are the origins of six major rivers; the Nipissing, Amable du Fond, Petawawa, Bonnechere, Opeongo and lastly, the Madawaska. The mighty Madawaska River typifies the region's unique geography, as southern forests of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Lowlands meet the northern Boreal Forest at the southern edge Canadian Shield.

  • 2014 – 50 Cent Silver Platted Coin – Lost Ships in Canadian Water – R.M.S. Empress of Ireland
    It was the greatest maritime disaster in Canadian history – a tragedy unparalleled by the loss of life and the speed at which the events unfolded. The sinking of RMS Empress of Ireland made headlines around the world in 1914; sadly, the onset of the First World War would quickly overshadow the events that transpired in the waters near Rimouski, Que. Built in Scotland by the Fairfield Shipbuilding and Engineering Company, Empress of Ireland was launched on January 27, 1906. Measuring 172 metres long and 20 metres wide, the Canadian Pacific Railway steamship was widely regarded at the time as one of the fastest and most comfortable passenger ships for the transatlantic journey between England and Canada.

  • 2014 – $250 One Kilo Fine Silver Coin – War of 1812 – The Battle of Lundy’s Lane
    As the War of 1812 waged on, American and British North American forces continued to battle one another for territorial gains. On July 25, 1814, troops from both sides came face-to-face in an explosive encounter that would bring an end to one last attempted invasion of Upper Canada. The Battle of Lundy's Lane was one of the fiercest land battles of the War of 1812 – but also one of the deadliest ever fought on Canadian soil, with high casualties suffered on both sides. As American troops surged forward, the British troops – which included the Canadian militia and First Nations allies – fought together valiantly to hold their position and prevent the American troops from moving further north.

  • 2014 – $3 Fine Silver Coin – Animal Architects – Caterpillar and Chrysalis
    Few metamorphoses are as dramatic as the one experienced by the Monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus), which are a welcome sight during the summer across the many regions of Canada. Its beautifully patterned black and orange wings easily make the species one of the most recognisable butterflies found in North America; however, this iconic form is only attained during the final stage of its life cycle, after it sheds its brightly striped caterpillar form and develops within the safety of the chrysalis that encases it.

  • 2014 – $5 1/10 oz. Pure Gold Coin – Bald Eagle
    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.

  • 2014 – $20 1 oz. Fine Silver Coin – Spring Maple Canopy – Paint on engraving
    Spring is one of Canada’s most exciting seasons simply for its explosion of fresh new life. The land seems to change by the hour as new buds and leaves burst forth to soak up the sun. The air is fresh and full of life. Yet, one of spring’s most spectacular sights is a towering maple tree with its canopy of fresh, vivid leaves; and one of the best places to enjoy its beauty is from the trunk, looking up.

This striking silver coin pays tribute to one of several maple species that are native to Canada: the silver maple (Acer saccharinum).

  • 2014 – Silver Dollar Proof Set – 100th Anniversary of the Declaration of the First World War
    A wave of patriotism and enthusiasm greeted the news in Canada, where many believed the war would be a short and glorious campaign. While pre-war Canada had a sizeable militia, it had a small standing army of only 3,110 men. Sam Hughes, Minister of Militia and Defence, moved quickly to mobilise and equip Canada's military contribution to the world stage. Across the Dominion, men of different backgrounds flocked to recruiting stations. Many were recent British immigrants or native-born Canadians of British stock, but there were also more than 1,000 French Canadians, many members of the First Nations, along with non-British immigrants and black Canadians.

  • 2014 – $20 Fine Silver Coin – Water-lily and Glass Leopard Frog
    Found in Canadian province and Territory except Yukon and Nunavut, the leopard frog is aptly named for the irregularly shaped black spots that dot its brown, greenish-brown, or green skin. It lives in a variety of habitats including wetlands in prairies and woodlands in summer for feeding. In the fall it usually moves to ponds, streams, and rivers which do not freeze to the bottom. In the spring it emerges to seek out ponds and marshes for breeding. It is there that the tadpoles will develop. The leopard frog consumes nearly any animal that fits in its mouth, be it insects, worms, smaller frogs and even birds or garter snakes. The hunter becomes the hunted if it encounters predators such as fish, water snakes, turtles, herons, raccoons or even larger frogs.

  • 2014 – $125 1/2 Kilo Fine Silver Coin – Howling Wolf
    Four subspecies of Canis lupus are found across northern and western Canada and in the region around the Great Lakes. Canis lupus lycaon, the Eastern Timber Wolf, resides in the south-eastern region of the Great Lakes. Canis lupus arctos, the Arctic Wolf, lives in the far north. Canis lupus nubilus, known as the Great Plains Wolf or Buffalo Wolf, lives in the south-central region just west of the Great Lakes. Canis lupus occidentalis, the Rocky Mountain or McKenzie Valley Wolf, has its home in the west as far north as Alaska. Some experts believe that howling—that eerie hallmark of this unique species—is a key element of territory establishment, acting both as a warning to other packs and a call to gathering among pack members.

Canadian fauna and flora; First Nations culture and art; historic portraits and images; and various logos. Every time you explore this coin, you will see something new.

  • 2014 – $25 Ultra High Relief Fine Silver Coin – 75th Anniversary of the First Royal Visit
    History was made when King George VI and Queen Elizabeth visited Canada in 1939. It was the first time a reigning monarch had ever traveled to North America, and for a young nation eager to flex its muscles of independence, the royal tour provided the perfect opportunity. Eight years earlier, a number of colonies had gained full sovereignty from British rule under the Statute of Westminster; for Canada, the Royal Tour would breathe life into that legal document in a real and dramatic way. The royal tour was more than two years in the making; a grand, 29-day voyage across Canada from east to west and back again—almost 14,000 kilometres by rail. The royal train featured the best carriages that Canadian Pacific and the Canadian National Railway had to offer, with two specially fitted convertible McLaughlin-Buicks on board to tour the royal couple in cities and towns along the way.

  • 2014 – $5 1 oz. Fine Silver Coin – Arctic Fox
    Just slightly larger than the average housecat, Vulpes lagopus—the Arctic fox—is a silent and prolific hunter. The pelt of the Arctic fox is unmatched for warmth, sustaining it at temperatures below -50° Celsius. Its fur is brown, grey-brown, blue-grey, or dark blue-grey in the warmer months. In the long Arctic winter, most turn pure white, although some populations show lighter blue-grey through the winter phase. The fox's thick fur covers its small rounded ears and even the pads of its feet, for optimum warmth.

  • 2014 – $5 Dollars Fine Silver Tradition of Hunting : The Seal
    In an environment as extreme as the Arctic, one would expect people to hunt as many animals as possible in order to stock up on provisions. But in Inuit culture, as well as all aboriginal cultures around the world, living in harmony with nature is paramount. Countless Inuit legends passed down through generations of oral storytelling reflect the profound understanding that all of humanity is irrevocably reliant on the earth. Many stories speak of mystical beings who oversee people's activities to ensure nature's laws are respected. One such legend is Sedna, the goddess of the sea. If a hunter takes more than his fair share, Sedna will not permit the animals to offer themselves.
