The gyrfalcon has been prized by humans as a hunting companion since ancient times. Associated not only with falconry but also with royalty and nobility, and a celebrated circumpolar Arctic coastal dweller, the gyrfalcon—the largest of the falcon species—makes a fitting subject for the Royal Canadian Mint’s stunning 2016 gold bullion coin.
This quarter-ounce 99.99% pure gold bullion coin features a striking reverse design by Canadian nature artist Steve Hepburn, which captures the celebrated power of the renowned gyrfalcon in flight.
