# 934 - Canadian Wildlife - Part 20

in LeoFinancelast month

Today we will continue the series called "Canadian Wildlife".

The Royal Canadian Mint is known by its high quality work and the enormous number of commemorative coins issued each year. Among these commemoratives we find many, individual or in series, under the theme "wildlife".

Canada, with its vast lands and seas, is the home of a varied fauna and that will be showed in this series.

I will try to post land animals, sea animals and birds, in that order.

The thirtieth is a 2017 1oz Canada 150th Anniversary Silver Round.

It was made by Republic Metals Corp and it weights 31.1g with silver purity of 99.99% and Brilliant Uncirculated finish.

2017 represents the 150th anniversary of Canadian confederation, celebrated here in four nines pure silver. The round is produced exclusively with silver sourced from Western Canadian mines, leading to the tagline "Responsibly sourced Canadian silver".

The reverse displays an image of a Canada goose in flight, reminiscent to the image of a flying goose that featured on the centennial edition silver dollar issued in 1967. The obverse features the official Canada 150 stylized maple leaf logo.

In addition, the round features world beating security features for investor's protection. There are radial lines stamped into both sides, as well as micro engraved lettering around the inner rim on both sides of the coin that is visible under 10x magnification.

That looks like a different reverse!

I think it's better more and more natural image than the 1967 and 2020 Goose.
They are a relatively low mintage and I can't seem to remember...
AWL Sis 💓

I like that elizabeth is not the coin.

That is because it is not a coin. It is a round minted by Republic Metals Corp.

I can't remember why I didn't buy this coin when I had the chance, likely when I was low on cash after all 2017 was a bit tough for me financially until I forgot about it. I must be getting old, lol!

It is not a coin. It is a round and you can find it on Ebay.

I like all the wildlife coins so far. You have such the diversity of coins; I like seeing what comes next! Thanks for sharing!

Thank you, my friend. This series will not end soon, as I have a few more coins to post about Canadian wildlife.

😎👍 Nice!

Thats interesting @ronavel, silver sourced from Western Canadian mines...
Do you know what mines, just curious....

No, I could not find the names of the mines. Headquartered in Miami, Florida, Republic Metals Corporation was a renowned private American mint and filed for bankruptcy in 2018.

Ohh... I was just wondering, I hold some Canadian mining stock. Sometimes I send for silver stamped from some of these mines....😀
