There are few creatures in the sea more majestic, powerful, and deadly, than the orca whale. An apex predator that has no natural enemies, the orca is commonly found on the western coast of Canada in the cool waters of the Pacific Ocean near Vancouver. The 2016 Canadian $20 Master of the Sea: The Orca Silver Coin is available online at Provident Metals.
The orca whale is an unmistakable beast when you have the chance to see one, sporting black-and-white skin and is a well-known emblem of the Canadian Pacific Coast. Known as Orcinus orca, these mammals are highly intelligent and social creatures that live in tight-knit family groups referred to as pods.
Each of these 2016 Canadian $20 Master of the Sea: The Orca Silver Coin is struck on a planchet with a scallop shape, and features precision engraving that captures the exact likeness of each orca in the design with incredible detail. Your coin ships to you inside of a wooden display box with a graphic beauty box.
On the obverse of all Canadian coinage, youll find the image of Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen’s effigy appears on all Canadian coins and has since she ascended to the throne of England in 1952, with this particular design coming from Canadian artist Susanna Blunt in 2003.
The reverse of the 2016 Canadian $20 Master of the Sea: The Orca Silver Coin features the image of a family pod of orca whales. The mammals in the depiction are featured swimming together in the waters off Canadas Pacific Coast, with some gliding beneath the waves while others crest the surface in flight before crashing back below the waterline.
The Royal Canadian Mint is the official sovereign mint of Canada. Initially opened in Ottawa in 1908, its primary purpose at first was to conduct the refining of gold and silver discovered in the Yukon Territories. By the 1980s, a second facility was built in Winnipeg to expand capacity to meet the needs of numismatic production and regular Canadian currency.
