Prominent in the myths and legends of Canada’s First Nations, the black bear (Ursus americanus) is a powerful symbol of knowledge and might.

Multiple finishes, selective colour and detailed engraving offer a realistic depiction of a close encounter with a bold black bear in the wild. The Commanding Canadian Lynx. At home in the boreal forests that stretch across much of this country, the Canadian lynx (Lynx canadensis) commands attention with its beautiful features and secretive ways. This wildcat is a skilled hunter that easily adapts to the changing seasons-an admirable trait that makes it one of Canada’s beloved iconic species, as celebrated in this fine silver coin. The Regal Red-Tailed Hawk. Found throughout much of Canada, the majestic red-tailed hawk (Buteo jamaicensis) is a graceful glider and a swift hunter that soars effortlessly above the open country. Its superb vision allows it to swoop down upon its prey with a swift efficiency that makes it a compelling symbol for resilience and strength-a sentiment that resonates in this superb fine silver coin. The Baronial Bald Eagle. The bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) is the lord of its realm as it swiftly glides high in the skies above the forest. This superb fine silver coin pays tribute to Canada’s largest bird of prey, whose hunting and scavenging ways leave little doubt of its regal authority in the wild.
