Meet five wildlife treasures that have a strong Canadian connection! From a big bear to a button-sized butterfly, this special set introduces you to five of our endemic animals—animals that are only found in Canada and nowhere else. These all-Canadian wildlife treasures are tucked inside a colourful folder that opens up like a magazine spread. In addition to the five coins, you’ll find information on each animal’s size and other fascinating facts, plus a map that shows you where these Canadian creatures are found.

For collectors of all ages! A fun way to get to know some “only in Canada” creatures! Order today!

Special Features:
  • GET TO KNOW CANADA’S WILDLIFE TREASURES! This special set of coins is a fun way to learn about some of the animals that are only found in Canada.
  • LIKE A MAGAZINE SPREAD! The packaging comes loaded with colourful images and facts that make learning—and collecting—fun!
  • RARELY SEEN ON OUR COINS! Most of these animals have never appeared on a Canadian coin before.
  • LEARNING IS THE FIRST STEP TO WILDLIFE CONSERVATION! This set highlights five of Canada’s endemic animals, including one of the most endangered mammals in the world.
  • FOR COLLECTORS OF ALL AGES! This set’s wildlife theme will appeal to all collectors. It is a fun educational tool to introduce young Canadians to their animal neighbours or to a potential lifelong hobby: coin collecting!

Design:

Designed by artist Joel Kimmel, the coins in this set feature five of Canada’s endemic animals: Johansen’s Sulphur (Colias johanseni), Peary caribou (Rangifer tarandus pearyi), Copper redhorse (Moxostoma hubbsi), Vancouver Island marmot (Marmota vancouverensis) and Kermode bear (Ursus americanus kermodei). Our 2019 Canada’s Wildlife Treasures was made possible with the collaboration of the Toronto Zoo. From breeding programs to educational activities, Canada’s largest zoo is fighting wildlife extinction while inspiring Canadians to protect our natural environment—for today and for the future.

“It is so important to preserve biodiversity on this planet and as Canadians, we are the guardians of the plants and animals found only in our country. We need Canadians from coast to coast to coast to work together to learn about these species and do everything we can to preserve these National treasures. The Royal Canadian Mint is doing its part by producing the Canadian endemic animal coin collection showcasing some of the magnificent animals that call Canada home to help raise awareness.” Dolf DeJong, CEO, Toronto Zoo

Some wild facts…
  • Canada has about 286 endemic species.
  • Many of Canada’s endemic animals may be easily over-looked on account of their size. They include various insects, such as flies, bees, ants, beetles, and grasshoppers, but also spiders, slugs, and snails.
  • Many of these invertebrates (i.e. animals without backbones) might not be considered as charismatic as a large mammal, like a bear, but they provide critical ecosystem services needed by all life on Earth. Others, such as butterflies, are good at capturing our attention.

Packaging:

Like a magazine spread, your packaging comes loaded with colourful images and facts that make learning—and collecting—fun!

My husband and I always purchased Royal Canadian Mint Coins for our grandchildren, and these past few years as great grandchildren came along, we purchase for them to get them interested in collecting coins - especially any coins that depict Canada. They all enjoy their coins and in showing them to others.

I have no complaints about this selection, I think it's a really innovative way to bring knowledge to children that they may not receive in the normal course of their education. Actually I was unaware of these Canadian only species. So thank you!
