Based on its initial collector response, the new "O Canada" coin series is likely to be one of the most sought after and difficult to obtain collections from the Royal Canadian Mint in 2013. This is the first coin in the new 12 coin series celebrating our national identity and featuring some of Canada's most popular images and icons. Coins will be released one per month in each month of 2013.

Each coin in the series will be of the highest quality produced by the Royal Canadian Mint, double struck in pure silver with a near flawless matte proof finish and a weight of just over half an ounce. This item is for the one coin only, with no additional coins to follow in the subscription series.

Inukshuk Design
This coin design features an Inukshuk with mountains, frozen sea and the northern lights around it, all true characteristics of the Canadian Arctic. Living high above the tree line on the Arctic tundra, the Inuit and other migratory people of the High Arctic have used the tools provided to them by nature to not only thrive in one of the planet's most hostile climates, but also help to ensure the survival of others in their region. One of these tools is the Inukshuk. Its name meaning "a thing that acts on behalf of a person," an Inukshuk (pronounced "inook-shook") is a sculpture of piled stone used as a place marker, navigational aid and communication tool. This coin tells the beautiful story of the history and traditions of the Inukshuk and the Canadian Arctic

Beaver Design

This coin features an image of a beaver felling a birch tree. The beaver, viewed from the front with its head turned toward the right side of the coin, rises from the hard work of chopping at the birch trunk with its prominent incisors. Framing the image is an outer band featuring the word "CANADA," the date "2013," and the face value of "10 DOLLARS," as well as a small stylized beaver paw print symbol. The beaver has been a widely used symbol of Canada since the early era of fur trading, when Canadian beaver pelts were prized for fur hats in European high society. Today, the beaver is also a symbol of the industriousness of Canadians.

Beautiful coins

By SHARON

from KIMBERLEY

Silver Reviewer

I too was impressed with how beautiful these first 2 coins are. What upsets me though is I signed up for the auto-delivery program for all the coins in this set and so far I've only received 3 of them! I gave 5 stars for the coins only...I am unimpressed with the auto-delivery system and I would give that 1 star at best. I am also recommending the coins not the auto-delivery. I Doubt I will do that again.
