People adore animals, and this fine silver coin will melt hearts all around with its color design of a baby raccoon and its endearing bandit-masked face. Indeed, this baby raccoon will learn how to become a clever scavenger from its mother, who will spend roughly a year showing her kits how to find food.Whether in the country or on a city block, it's not uncommon for careful observers to catch a glimpse of a mother raccoon leading her brood through the night. The perfect coin to start a young person's collection! 8th coin in the popular Baby Animals series of fine silver coins that feature heart-warming images of baby animals in the Canadian wilderness.
SELECTIVE COLOURING beautifully complements the detailed engraving and adds a life-like quality to this depiction of a baby raccoon and mother in a wetland setting. Each coin is crafted from 99.99% pure silver with a limited mintage worldwide! For our Canadian customers, this coin is GST/HST exempt.Designed by Canadian artist Trevor Tennant, this coin depicts a young raccoon alongside its mother on a summer evening in their wetland habitat. As the sunset casts a golden glow upon the water in the background, this raccoon family begins its nocturnal activities. Both raccoons are beautifully rendered with fine detailed engraving that captures their soft expressions and the texture of their fur. A three-quarter profile provides a magnificent view of the young raccoon's features, while selective coloring brings to life its gray-brown fur and distinctive markings - particularly its dark-colored eye mask and ringed tail. The adult raccoon stands to the right of her young, ever attentive to any signs of danger as the kit is poised on a rock along the water's edge, near the green vegetation that provides shelter for some of the aquatic creatures that sustain them in the wild.
Raccoons don't quite hibernate but they do sleep longer during cold winters; they will eat more to build up fat reserves ahead of winter's advance. Raccoons are excellent swimmers - but only if they have to! They do, however, have a curious habit of dipping their food at times in water. Hunted for their fur as well as meat in parts of their range, a few dedicated raccoon hunters tell tall?Tales of especially large raccoons luring coon hounds into deep water and then climbing on their heads to drown these valuable dogs. They're omnivorous, with a diet that could include berries, nuts, seeds, insects, eggs, birds, mice, fruits, and vegetables; but their favorite foods include fish, crayfish, frogs, clams, and snails. On average, a raccoon has a life expectancy of about five years. Raccoon populations can grow very quickly when adequate food and shelter permit.
We have seen as many as thirty raccoons visiting our deer feeder at the same time! Raccoons move along the ground by walking on the entirety of their foot. Younger nature lovers are delighted to find the distinctive hand-like tracks of raccoons along the muddy banks of streams and ponds. Raccoon paws are very dextrous, allowing their toes to open shells, trashcans, and even open a jar or untie a shoe!
Their dexterity also provides the ability to open cages unless they are equipped with special raccoon-proof latches! Very adaptable to living close to people, raccoons are present in many urban and suburban areas in large numbers. They should never be approached, however, as rabies is widespread among these masked bandits. Each coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box. Photos: When a listing offers multiples of the same coin, one coin is picked at random and photographed.Since all coins offered in that listing are essentially identical, the coin photographed is representative of all coins offered. Surface areas that appear black on some proof coin photos are actually highly polished, mirror-bright metal reflecting the color of the camera. We often include proof coin photos with the coin slightly tilted to better depict the mirror bright surfaces. However, tilting the coin may resulting one side being slightly out of focus. Whenever possible, we use actual photos of our coins, rather than just stock artwork from the Mint.
We frequently update and upgrade the photos that appear with our listings, using improved cameras and lenses and better lighting. We will honor your requests for additional photos as quickly as our schedule permits. Unsearched All of the coins offered in this listing are unsearched.
