Let your investments soar with the 2014 1 oz Peregrine Falcon, the first in the Royal Canadian Mint’s Birds of Prey series.
This beautiful coin allows you to own the beginning of a series, while investing in .9999 fine silver. It weighs 1 ounce and has a 38 mm diameter. Mintage is limited to one million coins in this bi-annual series.
Designed by Emily Damstra, the reverse shows a peregrine falcon in its mid-air attack position, wings spread and claws stretched to capture its prey. The fine detail on the feathers makes each one stand out against the field. The words CANADA and FINE SILVER 1 OZ ARGENT PUR are around the rim. The fineness is noted to the left.
The obverse features the Queen’s portrait, as well as the inscriptions ELIZABETH II and 5 DOLLARS 2014.
This new series will highlight some of the most incredible predators of the air. The peregrine falcon is an awesome hunter, able to reach speeds of more than 200 miles per hour in pursuit of its prey: medium-sized birds such as pigeons, waterfowl and songbirds.
Because of its incredible hunting technique, the peregrine is used as a symbol of aggression and military prowess in many cultures, including the Native Americans of the Mississippian culture and the Western European nobility.
You’ll feel like a king when you’ve added this fine bird to your collection. Buy your 2014 1 oz Peregrine Falcon Silver from Provident Metals today.

- Careless Handling At The MintQuinnon 9/8/14
OverallThe design is great, but there are milk spots on 3 out of 5 coins. The edges were also dinged up on 4 out of 5, and the surfaces were scratched on two of the coins. This will be my LAST RCM purchase. The Canadian Wildlife Series coins were very good, but everything else that I have ordered from them has been very cheap and generic looking. If you want quality coins that always come in mint condition and appreciate very well in value look at the Perth mint coins that come individually encapsulated. They are well worth the extra dollar or two, and they skyrocket in value year after year. I bought the 2001 Year of the Snake for $15 a few years back and it is now worth $109. I also purchased the Year of the Tiger coins in 2009 for $15. They are now worth $70. That's the kind of return that all investors, big and small, should strive for. RCM really needs to get their act together and change their handling procedures. To the contrary, Provident Metals was spot on as usual with fast shipping, and discreet packaging. Thanks, Provident!

- Nice coin but Bummed about the Milk SpotsByron in Coloradoon 4/25/14
OverallI love the Canadian Coins and will keep buying them but I was alittle Bummed that their were Milk Spots on my coin. The coin is really nice anyways, silver is silver when push comes to shove so I am not that worried about it. I will buy some more and hope I get some without the stupid Milk Spots. Thanks Provident for your Great Service!
- Nice if they could pull it offMartyon 4/24/14
OverallPretty sad that in 2014 Canada still has a milk spot problem.....
- Still got milk spotsRandallon 4/18/14
OverallOrdered another batch of these coins. 30 of 50 had milk spots. Sad that RCM still cant get their $hit together. They make all these coin dealers look terrible. But once again, thanks Provident for the fast shipping and no hassle purchase.
- Was Excitedchristopheron 4/15/14
OverallI picked up only a couple of these to check them out. I really wanted to buy at least a tube, however, I was leery of the milk spots I heard about. I am glad I only bought a couple. The two I purchased have ugly milk spots all over them.
- Nice coinsRandallon 4/8/14
OverallOrdered my second batch of these coins. Only 5 of 75 had milk spots on them. All other coins arrived in BU condition. Not too bad but i wish RCM would take care of this problem. Thanks again provident for your terrific service and shipping times.
- Very NiceAllenon 3/14/14
OverallVery nice detail and arrived in perfect condition. Not as good as some of the Perth mint stuff, but much better than the Eagles.
- PerfectSteve on 3/10/14
OverallArrived quickly and in flawless condition. The attention to detail is stunning on these coins. I have never been disappointed with Provident. As Arnold would say "I'll be back"
- Another RCM BeautyCosmicLovedogon 3/8/14
OverallGreat coin with nice detail. I agree with another reviewer who said the coin is much better than the picture of the coin. My coins arrived in flawless condition. I bought the proof version as well, and it too is beautiful. I will buy more of these.
- AwesomeFast Eddyon 3/8/14
OverallPurchased a roll with my last order and I'll probably order another. Given that these are the first coins in the series you can almost guarantee they'll be selling for a significant premium over spot in a year or two. Beautiful design as well free of "milk spots".
- milk spots still a problemRandallon 3/6/14
OverallJust got my batch and wanted to inform others that RCM still hasn't fixed the milk spot problem. Although the spots are more like tiny dots instead of globs everywhere, they are still present. Coins look great but more than half had milk dots. I'm giving the coin 3 stars but providential gets 5 stars for there impeccable service and shipping. Just didn't want others to be disappointed like myself
- Not to shabbyZon 3/4/14
OverallJust received my order of peregrine falcons. I was worried that these coins would have the same issues with milk spots, and overall quality that plagued the last wildlife series. To my surprise these coins showed up in flawless condition. The picture shown above doesn't do these coins any justice. They look amazing in person. I'll be ordering quite a few more from Provident Metals.
