2017 is a big year for Canada. This year marks the Canada 150 celebration and to honour the occasion, the Royal Canadian Mint has decided to create several individual coins, sets and proofs to celebrate the anniversary. Coin collectors will love adding these unique coins to their collection. Many coins have colourful depictions of common Canadian symbols while some even glow in the dark! One coin that is particularly unique for the anniversary commemoration is the 150th Wild Swift Fox and Pups $10 Fine Silver Coin. This coin is a lovely addition to any collection and can be purchased individually as well as part of a set.
Canadian Geographic is known for reflecting the diverse and rich culture of Canada via photography. The publication has covered it all, from lovely greenery to landmarks and animals. The photo used on the $10 Canada’s 150th Wild Swift Fox and Pups coin comes from Canadian Geographic and highlights the beauty of the prairie landscape located in Saskatchewan. This area of Canada is home to the swift fox, which is an endangered species.
The coin is created from 99.99% pure silver and has a weight of 15.87 and a diameter of 34mm. The coin has a matte proof finish with serrated edges and a face value of $10. The coin is the 10th in a 13 coin series which takes collectors on a unique journey into the beauty and majesty of Canada. The 13 coin series features various coins from a cross-country collecting experience to showcase the landmarks, flora, landscapes and fauna of the country.
The series of coins is actually a collaboration created between Canadian Geographic and the Royal Canadian Mint. Beautiful designs were created based on unique photographs produced by the bi-monthly publication. Each month, a new coin is struck and applied with fabulous colour with each coin a representation of a province or territory from the Confederation.
The unique coins in this collection are an affordable option when you wish to add to your coin collection or introduce others to the wonderful world of coin collecting. The Swift Fox and Pups coin comes in a beautiful maroon clamshell with a black beauty box in packaging, creating a quality showcase piece or storage for safekeeping.

If you wish to own the 10th coin of the 13 coin set, you can purchase the coin individually or go with the full set. Since the coin is part of a unique 13 coin monthly subscription set, it is advised to purchase the full set so you have a complete collection of the unique coins created from the Canadian Geographic photos. The set comes in a lovely deluxe collector case where you can store all the coins to view whenever you like.
