The fourth and final coin in the Royal Canadian Mint's Birds of Prey series, the 1 oz Silver Great Horned Owl is the last 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.
The great horned owl (Bubo virginianus), also known as the tiger owl, is an extremely adaptable bird with a vast range and is the most widely distributed true owl in North, Central and South America. Its primary diet are rabbits and hares, rats, mice and voles, although it freely hunts any animal it can overtake. As Canada's most common bird of prey, the great horned owl is a symbol of power and agility, with unique features that lend themselves beautifully to this engraved portrait.
The reverse design by Canadian artist Emily Damstra features a faithfully engraved portrait of a great horned owl descending upon its prey. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II (by Susanna Blunt), along with the coin's face value and its year of issue.
