The Royal Canadian Mint has a well-deserved reputation for producing precious metal coins that feature some of the beautiful animals that are found across the Canadian territories. The 2017 Canadian Nocturnal By Nature: Barn Owl 1 oz Silver Coin Proof features the brilliant image of a barn owl. Previous releases in the Nocturnal by Nature Series have features various images of owls. This coin contains 1 Troy oz of .9999 pure silver. It has been issued a face value of $20 and is backed fully by the Canadian government. Just 7,000 coins were struck, making this a highly collectible specimen by both the investor and the collector of Canadian or wildlife-themed coins.
Canada is home to an incredible variety of nocturnal animals. The barn owl is just one of many, but is also one of the most adept nighttime hunters. The acute senses and secretive ways of the owl allow it to quietly stalk its prey and strike without the creature even knowing what happened.
The 2017 Canadian Nocturnal By Nature: Barn Owl 1 oz Silver Coin features a beautiful finish that has a black rhodium-plated background. The plating provides the look of a dark night sky, which helps to beautifully offset the silver color of the swooping down barn owl.
The obverse design of the 2017 Proof Canadian Nocturnal By Nature: Barn Owl 1 oz Silver Coin features the 2003 right-profile portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majestys portrait is featured on the obverse of all Canadian coinage.
The reverse design of the 2017 Proof Canadian Nocturnal By Nature: Barn Owl 1 oz Silver Coin features the image of a barn owl swooping down as if to capture prey. The owl has widespread wings and talons ready to grab a mouse or rabbit. The black rhodium plating of the background design helps the silver owl stand out.
The 2017 Proof Canadian Nocturnal By Nature: Barn Owl 1 oz Silver Coin is a visually beautiful coin that offers collectors and investors a great choice. Your coin ships to you protected in a clamshell that makes it easy to display your investment. A Certificate of Authenticity is included with each of the coins.
