Following the success of its Silver Bald Eagle Coin and its Silver Peregrine Falcon Coin and the Royal Canadian Mint is proud to present the third and most recent addition to its exciting “Birds of Prey” coin series, the 2015 1 oz Silver Red Tailed Hawk Coin. This exquisite piece is composed from 1 troy oz of 99.99% pure silver and values at $5 CAD.
As with previous “Birds of Prey” coins, mintage of the Red-Tailed Hawk coin are limited to 1,000,000 pieces. Gracing the the obverse of the coin is none other than the winged predator itself, the red-tailed hawk. This design has been skillfully rendered in stunning detail so as to capture each distinct feature. Equally as awe-inspiring is the sense of movement created by the dynamic angles of the hawk’s body. Details, such as its protruding head and fully extended wings and talons, offer viewers a glimpse of this airborne predator from the prey’s perspective and make it appear as though the hawk were ready to swoop down on them from above.
