2018 1 oz Geometric Fauna: Snowy Owls Silver Coin 9999

Adorned in its brilliant, snow-white feathers, the snowy owl (Bubo scandiacus) stands as a stunning symbol of the northern climes. With its piercing yellow eyes, this bird thrives across Canada's winters, extending its summer habitat to the far reaches of the Arctic Archipelago. Known for its resilience, mystique, and vigilant nature, the snowy owl captivates onlookers as it perches on elevated vantage points, keenly surveying its environment for prey or readying for flight. This coin marks the second release in your enthralling Geometric Fauna series, following the grey wolf. It features a snowy owl transitioning from a geometric form to a more realistic depiction, breaking free from the confines of its artistic boundaries.

Design of the Snowy Owls Silver Coin:

Claude Thivierge's design masterfully combines artistic styles to capture the enigmatic beauty of this avian species against a winter backdrop, highlighted by a colorful sunset. The scene is serene, with the landscape under a blanket of snow, where relief engraving mimics natural textures. Two snowy owls, depicted in low poly art style, add a dynamic element; one owl in flight breaks through the design's geometric constraints, merging abstract with realism. The coin features “CANADA,” its value “20 DOLLARS,” and the year “2018” along the edge. The obverse displays Susanna Blunt’s portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
