The Nocturnal By Nature coin collection is back again from the Canadian Royal Mint to showcase a coin that features both artistry and beauty. These coins in the series have been released with black rhodium plating to show the nocturnal traits of these creatures. The 2017 release is a great addition to the series and continues to highlight unique nighttime imagery. The 2017 $20 Proof Canadian Nocturnal By Nature Brown Bat 1 oz Silver Coin is now available for purchase from Provident Metals.
When purchasing from this listing at Provident Metals, the 2017 $20 Proof Canadian Nocturnal By Nature Brown Bat 1 oz Silver Coin will arrive in its own presentation box, along with a Certificate of Authenticity. This 2017 coin was struck in 99.9% pure silver as an exclusive release by the Canadian Royal Mint and is considered a full legal tender of Canada.
This 2017 release is the second coin release for the Nocturnal By Nature series. This Royal Canadian Mint collection features multiple encounters with nocturnal wildlife known to be native to Canada. The little brown bat is a Canadian native and lives in areas spanning from the Great Lakes to the Arctic tundra. The bat navigates and finds insect prey to eat at night by using echolocation. This coin collection presents face-to-face encounters to the viewer with the use of skillful artistry, black plating, and detailed engraving.
The effigy of Queen Elizabeth II is shown on the obverse of the 2017 $20 Proof Canadian Nocturnal By Nature Brown Bat 1 oz Silver Coin. There are also two inscriptions: ELIZABETH II and D.G. REGINA. The portrait of Her Majesty has been used on many different coins around the world that have been manufactured and distributed from different mints.
The reverse of the coin shows the face-to-face encounter with the brown bat of Canada. The design was originally created by artist Calder Moor and showcases the bat flying high in the night against the moon in the background. Its wings are fully outstretched, and the bat is shown with highly detailed elements so the moonlight can be seen on the bat. The rhodium plating used on this coin makes the bat appear as a shadowy figure against the lunar backdrop.
