This 2014 Swimming Beaver $50 Canadian Silver Coin is the latest addition to the Royal Canadian Mint’s wildlife inspired series. The beaver has been a longtime national symbol of the Canadian empire due the role it played in attracting settlers to the region. Given its cultural and historical significance, it seems only fitting that such a creature should be commemorated in one of the series’ new coins.
This silver swimming beaver coin is one of only 1,500 ever to be produced during its brief one year mintage and it is also among the few to remain in its brilliant uncirculated condition. Each 5 ounce beaver coin has been made from the finest 99.99% pure silver and presently holds a face value of $50 CAD. All coins come with their original mint box for both display purposes and to maintain their newly minted state.
The front image of this coin provides us with an underwater view of the beaver as it dives into the chilly Canadian waters to gather the necessary building materials for its dam. From its textured pelt to the rough piece of wood it gnaws on, no detail has been spared in the artistic rendering of this animal or the dense underwater terrain it must navigate through. The entire image speaks to the sense of adventure that the first settlers must have felt as they tracked this creature through the wild. The back image of the coin also references earlier times in Canadian history with a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II to remind them of their former status as a British colony.
The 2014 Swimming Beaver $50 Canadian Silver Coin is certain to become a popular favorite among coin and wildlife enthusiasts alike. Because of its limited release, we recommend that customers take advantage of current availability. As with all orders, shipping and insurance is complementary.
