Beginning in 1867, Canada started the long march toward independence from the direct governance of the United Kingdom. Known as confederation, this movement brought together the provinces and territories of Canada as each existed at the time. Fast forward to 1967, and the nation celebrated its confederation with a commemorative Canadian Dollar strike.
Artist Alex Colville created the simple, yet elegant design of a Canadian goose in flight. The bird is in mid-flap as it glides along its path between Canada and the southern United States or northern Mexico. Canadian geese winter in the southern US and northern Mexico, and return to the northern US and Canada in the spring and summer months to breed.
The obverse side of these 2020 2 oz Silver Canadian Goose Coins includes the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. This right-profile portrait of Her Majesty is the fourth on Canadian coins during her long reign. It was created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt, just the second Canadian artist ever to create a monarch portrait for Canadian currency.
On the reverse of the 2020 Silver Canadian Goose Coins, the Canadian goose takes flight again in a mirrored image of Alex Colville’s original 1967 work. While the Canadian Dollar of 1967 had the bird flying from right to left, this coin has the opposite image with the bird flying left to right across the design field. When flying in the classic V-formation as a flock, Canadian geese can travel as far as 1,000 km (621.37 miles) in a single day.
These 2020 2 oz Silver Canadian Goose Coins are available to purchase in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. If you purchase individual coins, each one comes with a protective plastic flip. Multiples are available either in tubes of 14 coins or boxes of 280 coins.
