The Baby Animals Series from the Royal Canadian Mint is ideal for those collectors who love all things Canadian, wildlife, and/or nature-themed in their personal coin collection. The 11th release in this popular series focuses on the woodchuck, known to some as the groundhog.
Woodchucks are winter hibernators in the Canadian wilderness, only emerging in the warmer months of late spring, summer, and early autumn to warm their bodies and collect food for their young. The 2016 1 oz Proof Canadian Silver Baby Animals Woodchuck Coin captures one of these heart-warming moments.
