The third of four coins in the Royal Canadian Mint’s Birds of Prey series, the 1 oz Silver Red-Tailed Hawk is a continuation of the formidable winged predators theme. (Show more....) As a collection worthy bullion, the limited mintage of 1 million coins make this a great buy for seasoned investors or first-time buyers.
Occupying a wide range of territory between Canada, United States and Mexico, the red-tailed hawk is a highly capable hunter. Being a carnivorous bird, it captures rodents, reptiles and even other smaller birds as a part of its diet. They often scan for their prey on an elevated perch or watch for prey while flying and swoop down to capture the animal to pin it down with its strong talons. Being a highly adaptable bird, it has become one of the most widely seen hawks in North America.
The back of the coin features a red-tailed hawk descending upon its prey. The design by Canadian Artist Emily Damstra shows one of North America’s biggest birds in action. An effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Canada’s head of state, appears on the obverse surface along with the coin’s face value and its year of issue.
