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.

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.

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.
