2013 Canadian $10 O Canada Series: Orca - 1/2 oz Fine Silver Coin


The orca is one of the planet's most uniquely social mammals. Only elephants and higher primates have societies that are as complex and robust as that of the orca. This marine mammal's social structure, which some researchers refer to as a "culture," reveals familial bonds, modes of communication, hunting habits and other practices that are passed on for generations.

Your coin portrays the orca in exquisite detail against the backdrop of the Canada's Northwest Pacific coast—part of Canada's distinct landscape.

Struck in 99.99% fine silver, your coin is GST/HST exempt.


Design

Your coin was designed by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc and portrays a side view of a powerful breaching orca. Facing toward the left side of the coin, the massive sea mammal is entirely outside of the water with the exception of its tail. Its tall dorsal fin and muscular body convey the sense of its exceptional size and strength. The expertly engraved image reveals the orca's distinctive markings to stunning effect, from the light eye patch above its left eye to the distinctive underbody and saddle markings of the species. Water washes away from the orca's body in torrents as it lifts itself from its fluid domain. In the background we see the Northwest Pacific coast with its rocky shoreline and tall, majestic evergreens. The reverse image is framed with a border engraved with the word "CANADA," the date "2013," the face value of "10 DOLLARS," and a stylized orca tail fin.


Packaging

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a maroon clamshell case lined with flock and protected by a customized full beauty box.
