1 oz Fine Silver Beaver Coin

Along with the Canadian horse, the beaver is one of Canada’s two national animals. While the beaver became an official symbol of Canada in 1975, its use as a symbol of this land goes back to the country’s earliest roots. In fact, a beaver appears on the first coat of arms associated with the land now known as Canada, dating back to the early 1620s.

Canadian Beaver Silver Coins Reviews

With new technology such as software and computing systems there has been a remarkable improvement in graphics detailing. The detail is amazing! Very happy to get one of the 8,500. Of course, I wish it was a lower number in the serialization but...

I received my coin the other day and was genuinely impressed with the detail. It's amazing to see such clarity in the branches and and leaves under the Beaver, the tooth marks in the tree and the trees in the background even. I like the large font for Canada too. Very well done.

The Beaver is truely a unique hard working animal, not just in our history but to present day as well!

I spent hours watching a beaver family only 50 feet away from our cottage in Ontario. This coin reminds me of them. I'll enjoy it for a long time to come.

Comments about Royal Canadian Mint 1 oz Fine Silver $20 Coin - The Beaver - Mintage: 8,500 (2013):

Another great wildlife - based coin by RCM and well done at that!
If there's any downside here it's that it takes a bit of getting the light and angle just right to ferret out the beaver with all the intricate small details. But then again, this somewhat elusive creature can be difficult to spot in the wild as well. In other words, it's easier to locate in the drawing than on the actual coin. Would high relief help in this kind of situation?
Hopefully down the road the Loon, Beaver and floating Maple Leaf can get together on a common coin!
In the meantime, happy gnawing to our important little Beaver friends.

Comments about Royal Canadian Mint 1 oz Fine Silver $20 Coin - The Beaver

One of the last reviews I wrote was for the Bateman moose coin. Even though its a great coin,I found that the details were lacking and the coin did not live up to the pictured design. Well, I have to say this coin is the opposite. The details are amazing and the coin, in my opinion, looks nicer than the website pictures. Very impressive. Great that the entire coin was used for the design as well. Thanks RCM.

Beaver Coin

Beaver Coin

Castor canadensis played a major role in Canada’s colonial history, becoming one of the primary motivators for the European explorers of the 17th century to forego their search for a passage to Asia and focus instead on the natural resources offered by the North American continent. With fur at its zenith in European fashions, beaver pelt hats became a product lucrative enough to feed settlement of the “new” continent by England and France.

Comments about Royal Canadian Mint 5 oz Fine Silver $50 Coin - The Beaver - Mintage: 1,500 (2013):

i just received this flawless coin and it's a beauty.
This larger canvass, so to speak, really shows off the intricate nature of the Beavers natural habitat.
When the light is hitting the highly polished (reflective) background of the coin, which is the water and a bit of sky, this coin is at it's best. Another feature I like is the letters and numbers can be made to almost disappear into the background, keeping the Beaver where it belongs, at the forefront.
If you have yet to receive this coin, you will not be disappointed!
A 1st class effort by all involved at the Mint; Great Job!

Hey beaver, it's true
I do believe I knew
I got that fever too
So let's go do what hungry beavers do
It will taste so good
We gobble wood and have ourselves some dam good fun

Two beavers are better than one
They're twice the fun
Ask anyone
A second beaver can be
Second-to-none
Two beavers are better than one

This is a must for all the beaver lovers out there.
This will surley be sold out in no time, especially with the low mintage of 1500. I'm glad I got my order in and can't wait to receive it. All in all a very nice design of our little engineers. What would we do without the beaver?
