2 oz 2020 Canadian Goose Silver Coin | Royal Canadian Mint
Buy with Confidence
For centuries, flocks of Canada geese flying overhead have signalled the changing seasons, a fixture so deeply rooted in the Canadian psyche that artist Alex Colville proposed the Canada goose and its “serene, dynamic quality” for the Centennial Dollar in 1967.
A variety of bullion coins and bars are available to purchase through select dealers. The retail price of bullion products is based on the international gold, silver and platinum market prices, which vary daily. Bullion coins do not have any fixed mintage unless otherwise stated.
This coin features Colville's design that highlights the goose's strong, streamlined body that enables it to fly great distances. Numerous geese will fly together in a V-formation to create air currents the geese can ride to save energy and travel as much as 1,000 km in a single day!
The Canada goose nests throughout Canada and follows various migration routes south, the longest beginning on the northern tundra and ending in the southern US and Mexico. Climate change is prompting more populations to overwinter in Canada, and some have begun nesting in western Greenland. The Canada goose was introduced to Britain in the 17th century, and was later brought to the Continent as a game bird. Its presence there is likely to evolve as their numbers continue to rise.
- To mark the 100th anniversary of his birth, we turned Alex Colville's centennial celebration of Canada into the Royal Canadian Mint's centennial celebration of the artist.
- Features the mirror image of Alex Colville's iconic design.
- A striking addition to any Canadiana or nature-themed collection.
- Unique cutting-edge security feature – micro engraved laser maple leaf (20) in the coin field.
- A unique 2 oz. weight featuring a $10 CAD denomination.
The Royal Mint brings Alex Colville’s artistry to life with the use of meticulous engraving and attention to detail. Designed in a similar likeness of the original, the modern rendition features a goose in flight over a blank coin field. The simplicity of the reverse side contributes to its elegance, as “Canada” serves as the legend, while the purity, weight, and a privy mark included for enhanced security are also included.
The obverse contains the contemporary effigy Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Susanna Blunt, with her majesties title as the legend, and the year of issue and face value, below.
This modern rendition of a classic, patriotic, and timeless designed coin in a non-conventional size makes it a sure favorite to investors and collectors alike. Elevate your holdings with the addition of a few 2 oz 2020 Canadian Goose Silver Coins to your cart today!
