With heavy wing beats, the red-tailed hawk (Buteo jamaicensis) looks positively regal as it takes flight over the open spaces it favours. This magnificent bird of prey is a graceful glider and a swift hunter that is able to soar effortlessly for hours on its broad wingspan, all while fixing its superb vision on what lies below. It is highly adaptable to a variety of habitats, but is commonly spotted while quietly hunting prey from its perch on a post or tree. The red-tailed hawk's raspy, high-pitched cry is unmistakable, and serves as an audible reminder of its resilient and hardy nature in our wilderness, as poignantly depicted in this superb fine silver coin.

A must-have addition for any nature or animal lover in your family! Order today!

Designed by Canadian artist Emily Damstra, your coin uses selective colour to highlight the engraved depiction of a red-tailed hawk in its natural setting. In a unique twist, this large, broad-shaped bird is viewed from the perspective of its prey, as though the viewer were staring up at the sky from ground level; the hawk is depicted in a controlled dive on outstretched wings, with talons ready and a fixed gaze that conveys the strength, fierceness and determination associated with this species. Intricate engraving recreates the smallest of details—from the softly feathered legs to the textured appearance of its overlapping feathers—while the selective application of reddish-brown, cream and yellow colours recreate the whitish underbelly and predominantly brown-spotted patterning of the western subspecies (Buteo jamaicensis calurus). In the background, the towering peaks and trees of Western Canada rise up beneath the great expanse of sky—a fitting, grand setting for this celebration of a majestic species.

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a graphic beauty box.
