This coin is exceptionally thick, and is the fourth release in the 1.5 ounce series of coins featuring wildlife of the Canadian Arctic.


  • Ships individually in protective packaging
  • Consisting of 1.5 oz of 9999 Fine Silver
  • Reverse: Features an intricate depiction of a snow falcon flying, the artist's initials, the metal purity content of 9999, a privy mark along with the name of the country of issue, the year of the release, metal type and weight in English and French on an edge patterned in radial lines
  • Obverse: Features an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, her name and title initials, the legal tender value of the coin against a background consisting of fine radial lines

The obverse is struck with the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and carries a higher face value of CAD 8 to reflect the increased silver content of the coin over a regular 1 oz coin.

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.

The Royal Canadian Mint is known as one of the most reputable mints in the world. The Ottawa Branch of the Royal Mint opened in 1908 and was renamed The Royal Canadian Mint in 1931 when control was transferred to the Canadian government. Their high standards for excellence and quality allowed them to be the first refinery to manufacture 9999 fine gold bullion coins in 1982, as well as the first to reach 99999 fine gold purity in 1999.
