The third release in the Royal Canadian Mint’s exciting new series of 99.99% pure silver coins celebrating Canadian sportfish features the darkness-loving walleye.
The reverse design by Canadian artist Curtis Atwater presents a portrait of a walleye in pursuit of its prey. Facing the viewer, the fish lunges toward two shiners on the rocky bottom of a body of water. Its sharp teeth, large mouth and eyes, and spiny front dorsal fin are showcased to stunning effect as its tail arcs to the right side of the image.
– Third issue in the Royal Canadian Mint’s new four-coin series featuring popular sportfish in their natural habitat. Future release will feature another popular species, the Rainbow Trout.
– The walleye is shown in pursuit of a pair of small shiners. The mottled body pattern of the fish has been carefully accented with various finishes contrasting against the mirror-polished background.
– Features edge lettering bearing the coin’s metal weight: “9999 Fine Silver 1 oz 9999 Argent pur 1 oz”
– A low mintage of only 6,500 makes this coin especially exclusive. The North American Sportfish series will also include two premium versions of fish species: one gold and one platinum coin.
– An exciting gift for the anglers and sports lovers in your life!
– This beautifully detailed fine silver coin is struck with an arresting image of one of North America’s most sought-after sportfish: the Walleye.
