The history of this 2015 Silver coin

This Birds of Prey 2015 coin is the final issue from this popular series that the Royal Canadian Mint introduced to the market in 2014. With two 1 oz Silver coins released in 2014, and two Silver coins released in 2015, this is one of the shorter series offered by the mint. Each Silver Birds of Prey coin features a different bird of prey, including the bald eagle, peregrine falcon, red-tailed hawk and the great-horned owl, as seen on this Silver coin. These Silver coins are appealing to both Silver bullion investors and coin collectors.

Why invest in 1 oz Silver bullion?

Though many buy these 2015 Great Horned Owl coins for collecting, these Silver coins are also ideal for investing. Silver, as used in these Silver Birds of Prey coins, has a history of being considered valuable, and no matter where you are in the world, there will always be a market for Silver. Many investors choose these 1 oz Silver bullion coins because the Canadian government guarantees the coins for their weight and purity, helping investors to feel secure in their choice of investment. With a lower premium over spot price of Silver, investors can buy as few or as many Silver coins as their budget allows.

I did not notice at first, but there were several white blotches on the coin. Whether it was a faulty coin or coin holder remains to be seen....

Soaring High with APMEX

For several months I've desperately tried to purchase the 4 coins in the "RCM 'Birds of Prey' series. I went through other online coin dealers sites and purchased each coin. What I received was gashed, heavily MILK SPOTTED coins. Of course the sellers weren't at fault. It was the Royal Canadian Mint who dropped the ball BIG TIME. I attempted to return one order and the customer rep actually started yelling at me saying "what do you expect for a $20 coin? Its not like you bought a PR70." Safe to say I've never been back. I placed my order for 2 of each coins in the BOPseries with APMEX told them of that experience and asked if they could help me in receiving my coins without any MILK spots. I placed my order 1-13-16 and on 1-16-16 I received 8 of the most BEAUTIFUL coins I have ever seen. The engraver, I believe it to be Emily Damstra, please correct me If I'm wrong, should win the "Engraver of the Year" award if there is one. I Love looking at the " Great Horned Owl" in the Sun. The detail and quality is so perfect you'd swear his eye is looking at you as his meal. You can almost count every feather. I'm telling you all out there, get these coins and only through APMEX! I don't feel APMEX went out of their way to please me as a customer. They gave me what I ordered because they place their customers satisfaction "FIRST".You've only but to place your order and know you'll receive the best merchandise and service second to none. Oh and by the way. Not a MILK Spot have I seen. Thanks again APMEX. Sure you may pay a buck or two higher for some coins elsewhere but for high quality merchandise and service it worth going with APMEX. THANKS RUDY III @AshCor Prime

Invest in Silver coins made from a Precious Metal in demand for green technologies.

When you buy these 2015 Silver coins, you most likely are not thinking about the Precious Metal’s ability to reflect light and naturally sterilize. Silver prices tend to increase when demand increases, and new uses for Silver are likely to increase the demand for the Precious Metal. Silver is also used in green technologies like solar energy, where Silver is used in photovoltaic cells. Silver, as in Silver bullion, is also starting to be used in fabrics, carpets and more to naturally kill harmful bacteria and germs, rather than use harsh cleaning chemicals.
