A member of the Mustelidae family that includes weasels, wolverines and skunks, an adult marten (or pine marten) is roughly the size of a housecat, but with a slender body and shorter legs. A sub-species, the Newfoundland marten, is only found in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. The baby marten depicted on your coin is already a few months old. After finding a suitable tree hollow or abandoned den, the mother gives birth to two to four babies in March/April. Each newborn weighs just 30 grams but they grow quickly! The mother nurses her young until early summer, and the juveniles are on their own by the fall. The marten’s silky coat has traditionally commanded a high price in the fur industry, where it is sometimes marketed as Canadian sable.
