2013 Canada 1/10 oz Proof Gold $5 The Beaver

2013 Canada 1/10 oz Proof Gold $5 The Beaver

Mintage of only 4,000 coins!
The first $5 gold coin in the Royal Canadian Mint’s exciting new "O Canada" series focusing on iconic Canadian images, this beautiful coin celebrates the rich history and symbolism associated with the Canadian beaver. This 5-Dollar coin is certified to be 99.99% pure gold with a diameter of 16 millimetres and a metal weight of 3.13 grams. The reverse design by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc features a detailed portrait of a beaver. Viewed in profile from its right side, the beaver’s face fills the central field. The unique animal’s distinctive small ears, eyes, and nose—all adapted for underwater living—rise above the water in which the beaver is partially immersed. The animal’s mat of thick, well-groomed fur and whiskers are rendered in fine detail. Its clawed forepaws limberly clutch a small branch from a tree, which the beaver eagerly chews for sustenance. Framing the reverse image is an outer band featuring the word “CANADA,” the date “2013,” and the face value of “5 DOLLARS,” as well as a small stylized beaver paw print symbol. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
