This very large proof swimming beaver coin weighs 5 ounces of pure silver, and has been produced with an extremely low mintage of just 1,500 coins. The image was designed by renowned Canadian artist Emily Damstra, and features a portrait of a beaver in mid-dive, a gnawed portion of the tree gripped in its chisel-shaped incisors. The beaver's elongated body is at the forefront, as it navigates the familiar confines of its pond. Acting as a natural rudder, its tail helps steady itself in the water. Its hind feet propel it towards the bottom of the pond, where it will add the branch to its winter food reserve.

The coin is engraved with the word "CANADA," the date "2014" and the face value of "50 DOLLARS."

This coin is accompanied with an art card hand signed by the artist, an exclusive bonus to The Shopping Channel. This is the second 5 ounce beaver coin produced by the RCM. The first coin sold out almost immediately and now sells in the secondary market at significantly above the original issue price.

Magnificent

By Trinny

from Stoney Creek, Ontario

I'm delighted with this striking coin for its size and beauty of the artistic design. Suitably packaged for delivery this coin deserves better presentation for display purposes. Good value for the price, with bonus artist hand signed art card.

This coin is absolutely gorious. I have the beaver coin issued previous to this, and they are both stunning in size, artwork and craftsmanship.

Absolutely Striking!

By PB

from Calgary, AB

On opening the clamshell packaging, the first thing you notice is how big the coin is. Pictures, and even seeing it on TSC, doesn't do it justice. The engraving is very nice, and adds another dimension to my collection. I don't buy with the idea of selling, I choose what I like, and this coin is beautiful. No disappointments here!

Superb addition to any collection!

RCM makes the best numismatic coins in the world!

This coin is MASSIVE!

It speaks for itself at 5 ounces of pure 99.99% silver at 65mm wide.

The details are what make this such a beautiful coin the tiniest details on its large 65mm canvas.

We also own the first coin in this series! But this one is special with the individually signed artwork card!

At a mintage of ONLY 1,500, we bought 4.

First Class Artwork on a coin

By Darla

from Toronto

This is really a quality item and with only 1500 world-wide it will be a great investment. Details on the engraving are excellent e.g. the beaver tail. The signed art card is a great value add. I plan to have the coin and card framed as a art piece for display. The price seems high compared with the current silver bullion price but one should consider the premium production values and comparison of similar products from other countries. Th easy pay plan is not available from the mint it is a great deal when the price is the same as the official issue price. This coin is difficult to get online at the mint and soon it will be a sell out.
