Product Details
First coin in a new series featuring the remarkable eyes of some of Canada’s wildlife species, all beautifully engraved in outstanding detail.

At home in Canada’s wooded areas, the great horned owl is equipped with enhanced night-time vision that helps make it a formidable nocturnal hunter. Its remarkable eyes are the focus of this first coin in a new series in which an innovative enamel effect provides life-like color, while glow-in-the-dark allows the animal eyes to peer out from the dark.

Coin Highlights:
  • Contains 3/4 oz of .9999 fine Silver.
  • Encapsulated and presented in a mint-branded box with a graphic beauty box.
  • Very limited mintage of 6,500 coins.
  • Obverse: Likeness of Queen Elizabeth II.
  • Reverse: Features the face of an owl with focus on the eyes. Glow-in-the-dark technology adds intensity to the eyes when placed in the dark.
  • Guaranteed by the Royal Canadian Mint.

The indomitable spirit of the great horned owl is evident in this reverse design by Canadian artist Curtis Atwater. The close-up portrait of its broad face features complex engraving that adds textural details throughout, especially in the rendering of its plumage. Special emphasis is placed on the owl’s eyes, where an enamel effect mimics the glossy look of a traditional paint application, but with far more color variances that give the amber-colored irises a more life-like appearance. They are further enhanced by glow-in-the-dark technology that adds a luminous intensity to the piercing gaze, which offers the only visible proof of the owl’s presence in the dark.

Hold your coin under a light source for 30-60 seconds then view the coin in darkness, where the colorful eyes glow—as they would during a night-time encounter with limited light!

90% of my purchases are gold & silver bullion. I purchased two In The Eyes of the Lynx, and now two of these as well. This new In The Eyes of the Great Horned Owl coin is really outstanding in design, detail and quality. Every stacker should have some silver numismatic coins in their collection, and this is definitely a keeper. With only 6,500 coins worldwide, this is a no brainer! Thanks,APMEX!
