This coin is exceptionally thick, and is the fourth release in the 1.5 ounce series of coins featuring wildlife of the Canadian Arctic. The reverse features a falcon in mid-flight.
Falcons are able to fly at extremely high speeds due to the unique shape of their wings. They are one of the few birds of prey that kill with their beak instead of their feet as seen in hawks and eagles. These coins make a wonderful addition for both collectors and investors alike. They are the same diameter as standard issue RCM silver coins, but 50% thicker. ABOUT THE ROYAL CANADIAN MINT The Royal Canadian Mint is known as one of the most reputable mints in the world.
