2022 Canadian $20 Black and Gold: The Sea Otter - 1 oz Fine Silver Gold-plated Coin

The third Black and Gold coin! One of the things nature does best is balance, and the sea otter is the perfect example: this adorable creature works hard, but it also makes time to float arm-in-arm (or paw-in-paw) with a loved one.

Once hunted to the point of extinction, the sea otter has been reintroduced to British Columbia’s coastal waters, where its appetite keeps sea urchin populations in check—this, in turn, helps to restore and protect the kelp forests that are a critical habitat for hundreds of species. It’s all about balance, which is beautifully represented on this coin’s dual-plated reverse.

Own this gold and black rhodium-plated portrait of the lovable sea otter.


Back by popular demand. This is coin #3 in the popular Black and Gold design of 99.99% pure silver coins that offer new perspectives on Canadian wildlife.
Three precious alloys. Beneath the gold and black rhodium plating, your coin has a 99.99% pure silver core.
Includes serialized certificate. The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.


The circular reverse design by wildlife artist Claude Thivierge features a contrasting “yin and yang” portrait of the sea otter (Enhydra lutris). Two adult sea otters are positioned in a way that represents opposite but complementary concepts, such as work and rest/play. Yellow gold and black rhodium plating clearly divide the design into two halves in order to highlight the importance of achieving balance in life, but also in nature, where the sea otter’s reintroduction to Canada’s Pacific coast has had a big impact on the marine ecosystem. The obverse features the gold-plated effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.


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