The history of Royal Canadian Mint Silver coins
The Royal Canadian Mint first issued 1 oz Silver bullion coins in 1988, with the introduction of the Silver Maple Leaf. These Silver coins are issued annually and have had three subsequent standard editions and many special editions. The mint also issued special editions like the Birds of Prey coin series, which debuted in 2014 with the Silver Peregrine Falcon. Silver coin prices are slightly higher for these Silver coins as they have numismatic, or collector, value. Other nature-inspired Silver coins from the Royal Canadian Mint include the Canadian Wildlife series and the Canadian Arctic series.
Why invest in the Birds of Prey coin series?
These Royal Canadian Mint Silver coins celebrate Canada’s birds of prey, including the red-tailed hawk. Each one of these 1 oz Silver bullion coins contains .9999 fine Silver and is backed by the Canadian government. The Birds of Prey Coin series contains four coins in total, with a limited mintage of one million per coin. These coin prices can be lower than other numismatic coins, allowing you to collect quality collectible coins from the Royal Canadian Mint at a relatively low price point.
Safely store and display your Birds of Prey coin series and other commemoratives.
Always store Silver coins in a cool and dry location because dramatic changes in temperature and humidity can affect the appearance of your coins. Tarnishing and spotting of 1 oz Silver bullion coins will decrease their collectibilty and therefore their value. Keep coins from your Birds of Prey coin series and other collectible coins in their original holders and save any information or cards that come with your sets. As Silver coin prices increase and become more valuable, you might want to consider secure storage in Citadel Global Depository Services.
Understand the Silver spot price when buying commemorative Silver coins.
When buying Silver coins, collectors and investors never pay the Silver spot price, as this is the price for raw, unfabricated Silver. Silver coin prices quoted are never the same as the Silver spot price, as you must add on fabrication, distribution and minor dealer fees, which will give you the premium price of Silver. If you buy the Birds of Prey coin series or other commemorative or special edition Silver coins, you must also add numismatic, or collector value to the regular premium price. Some 1 oz Silver bullion coins have a lower premium price versus commemoratives because sovereign mints issue the coins annually.
