The snowy owl is a species of owl that inhabits the Arctic regions of the world. As the name suggests, most of these owls have predominantly white plumage. However, the plumage of the birds can change as they age and is different between males and females of the species. Found in the Canadian Arctic, the snowy owl is featured on a 1.5 oz silver coin from the Royal Canadian Mint. Today, you have the chance to purchase 2018 Canadian Snowy Owl 1.5 oz Silver Coins from Provident Metals.
Most of the designs in the 1.5 oz silver series from the Royal Canadian Mint represent animals native to Canada. RCM has long focused on featuring native animal species on the reverse of its collectible and bullion coins. For example, owls have appeared on coins from the mint in series such as the Birds of Prey.
The obverse of all 2018 Canadian Snowy Owl Coins features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This is the fourth-generation effigy of Her Majesty on Canadian coins. It was designed in 2003 by Susanna Blunt. The design is just the second monarch portrait from a Canadian artist and the first since the reign of King George VI to depict the monarch without a crown.
On the reverse side of 2018 Canadian Snowy Owl 1.5 oz Silver Coins is the image of a snowy owl in flight. The bird has its wings stretched wide and its talons are extended and ready to capture its prey as it dives down silently. Snowy owls are born with black plumage that eventually turns to white as the bird matures. Adult males in the species are almost entirely white, while females are white with flecks of black in their plumage.
The Royal Canadian Mint enjoys showcasing the natural beauty and wonder of the Canadian wilderness. This coin is the seventh in a long-running series of 1.5 oz silver coins from the mint.
Your 2018 Canadian Snowy Owl 1.5 oz Silver Coin is available inside of a protective flip or in a mint tube of 15 coins. Each coin is available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
