Your investments will soar to new heights with the 2014 1 oz Silver Proof Peregrine Falcon from the Royal Canadian Mint.
This is a stunning proof version of the new Birds of Prey series coin. It is composed of .9999 pure silver and is the first of this three-coin series from the renowned Canadian mint.
The peregrine falcon is best known for its incredible speed — it has been clocked at 242 miles per hour during its hunting dive, making it the fastest creature on earth. A falcon hunts its prey by soaring high and then tucking its wings to dive steeply, clubbing small birds with a closed talon and knocking them out of the sky to their deaths. The falcon catches the falling prey and carries it off to be eaten.
In order to achieve such breakneck speeds, the falcon has evolved bony nodules to direct some of the airflow away from the nostrils so the bird can continue to breathe despite the force of the air pressure. Their eyes involve similarly impressive adaptations, including a third eyelid that spreads tears while protecting the bird’s vision.
You’ll see your investments more clearly when you add the 2014 1 ounce Silver Proof Peregrine Falcon to your collection. This fine coin features a reverse with the bird in strike position as it swoops down on its prey. The word CANADA is overhead and FINE SILVER 1 OZ ARGENT PUR is near the bottom rim. Its fineness of 9999 is to the left.
The obverse includes the portrait of Queen Elizabeth, with the words ELIZABETH II and 5 DOLLARS 2014 around the rim.
