Acting as a natural rudder, its iconic, leathery tail helps the beaver steady itself in the water.
Its hind feet propel it towards the bottom of the pond, where it will add the long, leafy branch to its underwater food reserves in preparation for the oncoming winter. The word'CANADA' is engraved along the bottom left edge of the coin, next to the face value of'50 DOLLARS' and the date'2014.
