Each territory and province are usually represented by one or a few species of animals and to encapsulate this Royal Canadian Mint released ‘The Canadian Landscape Fine Silver Coin’. These coins depict iconic bird and mammal mascots that are suited to their respective homes, and they reflect on who Canadians are as a people —whether it’s Quebec Snowy Owl or New Brunswick’s Chickadee. In striking red, white and black colorway and coined as a ‘patriotic first’ the Canadian Landscape Coin isn’t to be missed.
