1 oz 2016 Birds of Prey Reverse Proof Series | Peregrine Falcon Silver Coin
Buy with Confidence
The original Birds of Prey series was one of the RCM's best received bullion releases, and this new limited mintage reverse proof series is sure to be a favourite as well.
The first of four coins in the new, limited mintage reverse proof finished "Birds of Prey" series, the Peregrine Falcon swoops in and makes a striking entrance for the series with its grace and poise. The reverse of this coin features a design by Canadian artist Emily Damstra of a Peregrine Falcon or Falcon peregrinus in flight as it is about to strike.
The Peregrine is roughly the size of a crow with long compact feathers and pointed wings that allow it to reach speeds of more than 200 mph (322kph), making it the fastest animal in the world. The female peregrine, who is larger than her male partner, lays her eggs in a shallow niche that she often scratches out of the side of a mountain. The nestlings will spend the first 35 to 45 days of their life and begin hunting there. At six weeks the nestlings take to the sky and snatch food directly out of their parents talons, until they are finally ready to to leave the nest. This dynamic and revered predator makes a perfect beginning to this aggressive series.
This beautifully finished coin makes the perfect addition to any silver or wildlife collection. With a limited mintage of only 100000 this bullion priced coin is sure to sell quickly.
In multiples of 10 this coin will ship in the RCM flex sealed sheets, while multiples of 200 will ship in an RCM monster box.
