The gyrfalcon (White Falcon) has been prized by humans as a hunting companion since ancient times. Associated not only with falconry but also with royalty and nobility, and a celebrated circumpolar Arctic coastal dweller, the gyrfalcon—the largest of the falcon species—makes a fitting subject for the Royal Canadian Mint’s stunning 2016 gold bullion coin.
- The Royal Canadian Mint’s bullion coins are sought after by investors and collectors around the
world for their exceptional beauty and purity.
- Intricately engraved radial lines featured on the coin’s obverse create a stunning light-diffracting
pattern that is specific to this coin.
- Masterfully crafted by Royal Canadian Mint engravers using a variety of engraving techniques
and finishes to bring depth and texture to this stunning image of Canadian wildlife.
- An astute investment and exquisite complement to any collection featuring Canadian wildlife.
