This coin celebrates the beauty and uniqueness of the physical features that ensure the snowy owls reputation as a formidable hunter: its eyes. The reverse design by Canadian artist Arnold Nogy features a close-up portrait of the snowy owls facial features, its bright enamelled yellow eyes standing in stark contrast to its plumage. The addition of bright yellow and black enamel gives added depth to the owls eyes, and contrasts the softly frosted feathers of its face. Exceptional vision is what enables the snowy owl to be such a formidable hunter. Crafted in 99.99percent fine silver, this limited mintage coin is the first in a 3-coin annual series celebrating the striking eyes of Canadian wildlife. This detailed coin celebrates the snowy owl, a strikingly beautiful bird of prey inhabiting much of Canadas North. A striking addition to any Canadiana-, bird- or nature-themed collection.
