The Royal Canadian Mint introduced the all-new Predator Series of silver bullion coins at the World Money Fair in Berlin, Germany in February 2016. The RCM plans to introduce a total of four coins in the series, with each new design celebrating one of the nation’s many iconic predators.
Damstra will design all of the images used in the Silver Predator Series of coins from the Royal Canadian Mint. She made a splash designing Royal Canadian Mint coins in 2013 when she took over the design of Canadian Wildlife Series coins. The final two coins in that six-coin series were created by Damstra, and so beloved that Damstra was tapped to create the designs for the four-coin Birds of Prey Series.
On the obverse of the 2017 1 oz Canadian Silver Lynx Predator Series Coin is the image of Queen Elizabeth II, created by Susanna Blunt. This 2003 depiction is encircled by engravings of her name, the coin’s face value, the phrase “D.G. Regina,” and the year of issue for the coin.
The reverse of the coins includes the all-new design of a Lynx from Damstra. It depicts the elusive medium-sized cat as it prepares to pounce on one of its potential victims. Engravings include the nation of issue, purity, metal content, and weight of the coin.
All 2017 1 oz Canadian Silver Lynx Predator Series Coins in this JM Bullion listing are available in BU condition.
