The snowy owl is a powerful and silent predator who stalks its prey from above, swooping in for the kill without a sound. The creature is representative of Canada’s Arctic Circle region, and is among the largest owl species in the world.

Silver Snowy Owl coins from the Royal Canadian Mint are the ninth released in this Majestic Animal series of coins. Previous designs in the series highlighted other well-known species in the Canadian wilderness, such as the polar bear, moose, bighorn sheep, mule deer, and elk, among others.

On the reverse face of the 2016 1 oz Silver Canadian Snowy Owl coin is the colorized image of a snowy owl as created by Douglas Liard. Designer of all Majestic Animal series coins, Liard’s creation features a snowy owl as it rests upon a fallen log after the first snowfall of the year. Engravings on this side include Liard’s “DL” initials and “20 Dollars 2016.”

The obverse features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, as created by Susanna Blunt in 2003. Her Majesty’s effigy has not been colorized, and is accompanied by engravings that include her name, the nation of issue, and the phrase “D.G. Regina.”

The Royal Canadian Mint is the official sovereign mint of the Canadian government. With facilities in Ottawa and Winnipeg, the Royal Canadian Mint has produced high-quality gold bars to repay World War I debt for Britain and Olympic medals for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics.
