Take a stroll through any wooded area or park in a city center and youre bound to encounter curious, if not annoying, little squirrels. These creatures spend their days collecting nuts and making a home for themselves in the trees, typically oak trees. The pair comes together perfectly on a new coin from theRoyal Canadian Mint. Right now, you can buy the 2017 Canadian The Nutty Squirrel and The Mighty Oak 1 oz Silver Coin online at Provident Metals.
These coins feature a first-time design element from the Royal Canadian Mint that brings a sense of life to the Canadian Oak tree featured in the design. The mint used laser-cut technology to etch oak wood embellishments into the design on the reverse side to give the trees branches character.
Included in the design from Tony Bianco, youll notice the use of colorization on the coin’s reverse. Several leaves hanging from the Canadian oak have a brown colorization to bring the feel of fall to these coins.
The obverse of all Canadian coinage includes the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth. Canada is the one former commonwealth of the United Kingdom to use its own effigies of Queen Elizabeth, with this particular design coming from Canadian artist Susanna Blunt in 2003.
On the reverse of each 2017 Canadian The Nutty Squirrel and The Mighty Oak 1 oz Silver Coin, youll find the image of a playful, curious squirrel standing on a Canadian Oak branch gazing out of the tree and its surroundings, no doubt searching for some nuts to store up before winter sets in.
