This pure silver proof $10 coin uses Robert Ganz's winning image in the 2011 Canadian Geographic Magazine Photo Contest as inspiration for the design. The photographer's talent and perfect timing came together as he captured a praying mantis delicately perched on a grass seed head. The Royal Canadian Mint has recreated this image in just over half an ounce of pure silver with a near flawless proof quality finish. The mintage for this coin is limited to just 7,500 coins.

Praying Mantis
Three important adaptations: Camouflage, highly acute vision and reflexes, make the praying mantis a fierce predator of the insect world. They aid farmers and gardeners in keeping the number of pests down. In Canada, the praying mantis can be found primarily in Ontario, Quebec and British Columbia.
