The Kraken is a mythical creature that is believed to terrorize the deep ocean around the world. The myth of the Kraken inspires sheer terror as it incorporates the vast unknown of the deep ocean in the form of a terrorizing, massive, tentacled, bloodthirsty behemoth Within Canada, Maritime lore has a stake in this fable, as many claims to have seen the deep-sea terror as far back as the 1700s. The Royal Canadian Mint brings the creature to life on these 2 oz, 9999 pure silver coins!

The brute strength, sheer size, and terror are conveyed in equal parts on the reverse side rendering of the Kraken. The beast is centered, ominously glaring back as it prepares to devour two sea vessels, with its many tentacles probing. Skillful texturing is applied to the reverse side’s field, depicting the Kraken, suspended in water. The image is encapsulated with a light refracting, radial-lined encapsulation which contains the nation of issue, and metal type.
The obverse contains her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, centered over a light-refracting radial lined coin field. The Queen is encapsulated by the year of issue, her title, and the denominational value.
ABOUT THE ROYAL CANADIAN MINT
The Royal Canadian Mint is known as one of the most reputable mints in the world. The Ottawa Branch of the Royal Mint opened in 1908 and was renamed The Royal Canadian Mint in 1931 when control was transferred to the Canadian government. The Royal Canadian Mint is renowned for producing some of the highest quality and purity of gold and silver bullion coins and bars in the world. Their high standards for excellence and quality allowed them to be the first refinery to manufacture 9999 fine gold bullion coins in 1982, as well as the first to reach 99999 fine gold purity in 1999.
Multiples of 14 come in mint issued tubes, while multiples of 280 come in monster boxes. A standard 2 oz coin capsule, SKU 4704, will fit this coin.
