# 878 - Canadian Wildlife - Part 2

in hive-167922 •  4 days ago 

Today we will continue the series called "Canadian Wildlife".

The Royal Canadian Mint is known by its high quality work and the enormous number of commemorative coins issued each year. Among these commemoratives we find many, individual or in series, under the theme "wildlife".

Canada, with its vast lands and seas, is the home of a varied fauna and that will be showed in this series.

I will try to post land animals, sea animals and birds, in that order.

The second is a 2013 CAD $10 "The Orca".

This coin is in the series "O Canada Set One", that shows the Canadian spirit through Canadian places, animals, institutions and customs.

It weights 15.87g with silver purity of 99.99% and Matte Proof finish. The mintage was 30,834 units.

The reverse shows a leaping Orca and it was designed by Pierre Leduc and engraved by Alex Tirabasso.

Very cool silver coin, I like almost all of the coins with animals on them from all over the World. Thanks for sharing.

That will be a long series with Canadian Wildlife. Maybe later I will show what I have about World Wildlife...

You're welcome again @ronavel 👍🙂

I recall having a photo taken with my siblings with an orca whale. I wonder where it is? Thanks for the show, my friend, and take care @ronavel 🥰🌺🤙

Would it be in Orlando, at the Sea World?

I have never seen an Orca in the wild @ronavel, maybe someday....
Still they are nearby in the bay, and that's so impressive!!!
Excellent Canadian 10 Dollar coin !😀

I never saw a wild one, only domesticated orcas at Sea World, Florida.

Interesting to think that they are so close in the wild @ronavel!

That is a very nice piece with the details of the Orca with the water splashing around it and the trees in the background. I have never seen one in person, but can imagine how awe inspiring it must be! Thanks for sharing @ronavel and have a lovely day!

If you go to Sea World, Florida or to San Diego Aquarium (I think this is the name), you will see several very near you...

That would be cool. Unfortunately for now though, I think any trip anywhere might just be cancelled. Maybe someday.......🙃

I think I purchased this coin for my Niece, she loves Orca whales, my way of getting her to Stack PMs.
Thanks for Sharing @ronavel

I will show several coins depicting orcas, all minted by RCM.
