SILVER CANADIAN GYRFALCON COIN

The gyrfalcon has been prized by humans as a trusty hunting companion since our very earliest memories. The noble bird is associated not only with falconry but also with nobility. It is a celebrated Arctic coastal dweller. As the largest of all falcon species, the gyrfalcon makes an appropriate subject for the Royal Canadian Mint’s striking 2016 silver bullion coin.

This 1.5-ounce 99.99% pure silver bullion coin features a reverse designed by Canadian natural artist Steve Hepburn, which captures the celebrated power of the beautiful gyrfalcon in flight.
