Leave it to the beaver to be Canada’s cutest rodent. Immortalized on the 2013 Oz Canadian Silver Beaver, this industrious critter would love to call your collection home.
The 2013 Silver Beaver is the second coin in the Royal Canadian Mint’s O Canada Series. The series celebrates the national identity and heritage of Canada through iconic images, and the coin is composed of troy oz of .9999 fine silver.
The reverse of this coin, designed by artist Pierre Leduc, features a beaver standing on its hind legs, chewing on a birch tree. The rodent has briefly paused to study its hard work, sharp front teeth eager for the next bite. A stylish border decorates the rim, with beaver tracks to the left and the year 2013 to the right. It is also inscribed with the words CANADA and 10 DOLLARS.
The obverse of each Oz Silver Beaver features Susanna Blunt’s portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, along with the words ELIZABETH II and D G REGINA framing her face. The silver coin comes in a matte proof finish, with a red clamshell box and an individually numbered certificate of authenticity.
The beaver is a large aquatic rodent, predominantly known for its ability to modify the environment by creating dams, which block streams. This change to the ecosystem makes the beaver the only animal — besides humans — to dramatically transform its own habitat. The dams help the animal manage its food supply, while providing protection from predators.
