2013 Canada Silver $20 Untamed Canada Arctic Fox

2013 Canada Silver $20 Untamed Canada Arctic Fox

Product Details

Mintage of only 8,500 coins!
This 20-Dollar coin is certified to be 99.99% fine silver with a diameter of 40 millimetres and a metal weight of 28.02 grams. The reverse image by Canadian artist Tivadar Bote features a unique stylized image, inspired by woodblock design, of an Arctic Fox set against symbolic elements of its Canadian habitat. The fox sits serenely in the foreground of the image, looking toward the left side of the field, its thick fur, fluffy tail, small ears, and dog-like facial features beautifully rendered in stylized detail. In the background, motifs of circles, droplets, and wavy rays rise from the image of a circular sunburst positioned directly behind the fox. The circles and droplets symbolize the snow and light that are fundamental elements in the world of the Arctic Fox. The wavy rays allude to the warmth and brilliance of the sun, even in the Arctic landscape. The circularity of these elements echoes the circular field of the coin and hints at the cyclical nature of the Arctic Fox’s lifecycle. The outer frame is engraved with the species’ Latin name, “Vulpes lagopus,” the word “CANADA,” the date “2013,” and the face value of “20 DOLLARS.” The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
Coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell case and protected by a black sleeve. Includes an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity!

Very beautiful design and comes in an elegant case. APMEX shipped very fast. Giving the coin 4 stars though because it is only 9/10 ozt.
