Found throughout much of Canada, the majestic red-tailed hawk is a graceful glider and a swift hunter that soars effortlessly above the open country.
Its superb vision allows it to swoop down upon its prey with a swift efficiency that makes it a compelling symbol for resilience and strength, a sentiment that resonates in this superb fine Silver coin.
