9999 5oz Fine Silver Coin - Beaver - Royal Canadian Mint - NEW. This is one of the most attractive and artistic coins we have seen from the RCM this year. With the large 5 ounce format and limited mintage of just 1500 pieces, we expect this coin will sell out quickly.
This 50-Dollar coin is certified to be 99.99% pure silver with a diameter of 65 millimetres and a metal weight of 5 ounces. The reverse design by Canadian artist Emily Damstra features a portrait of a beaver family, its members immersed in the work of felling trees for their dam, lodge, and food cache. On the left side of the image, a large beaver stands upright, hard at work chewing the trunk of a birch tree with its sharp incisors.Wood shavings cover the ground beneath the beaver's feet and around the base of the tree. The beaver itself stands on its back paws, counterbalanced by its large flat tail, holding the tree trunk with its dextrous front claws.
Its small ears, eyes, and nose-which can seal themselves under water-are rendered in fine detail. On the right side of the image, behind and to the side of the upright beaver, another adult beaver and small kit work on either side of a felled log, trimming away bark and preparing the log for use. On the extreme left of the image, the base of this felled tree is visible.The background of the image reveals a large pond backed by mountainous forest. The beavers' food cache emerges from the centre of the pond. The image occupies the entire reverse field and is engraved with the word "CANADA, " the date "2013, " and the face value of 50 DOLLARS. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. Composition : 99.99% Pure Silver. Please wait for us to send you an invoice. If your automatic checkout does.
