The bugling call of the elk (or wapiti) is a telltale sign of fall in the western Canadian wilderness. During the rut, the male’s high-pitched bellows seem to resonate across the landscape, filling the crisp autumn air. The bull’s loudest vocalizations make his presence known—a distinctive call of the wild that serves as a show of strength and vitality among this species, beautifully captured on this stunning fine silver coin.

2017 $10 FINE SILVER COIN CELEBRATING CANADA’S 150TH: PEYTO LAKE- 155072Based on a photograph by Canadian nature photographer Missy Mandel, the reverse features vibrant colour over detailed engraving that showcases the famous mountain landscape of Banff National Park. The viewpoint from the Bow Summit Lookout affords a sweeping view of the forested valley below, where the partly clouded sky has cast shadows over the terrain. Sunlight shines through the clouds and enhances the colourful appearance of Peyto Lake, which steals the spotlight with its dreamlike, turquoise hue. The glacier-fed waters are nestled among the Rocky Mountains, where snow-capped peaks add a majestic quality to the scenery as they seemingly rise up to touch the sky. The reverse also features the engraved word “CANADA” and the dates “1867-2017” to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Confederation.$40.04 Add to cart
2017 $15 FINE SILVER COIN GREAT CANADIAN OUTDOORS: AROUND THE CAMPFIREThe reverse design by Joel Kimmel captures the mood in an idyllic lakeside setting, where two campers are enjoying a fireside moment. Blue and purple colours dominate the landscape, where the shadowy shapes of rolling hills and dense forest rise up along the horizon. In the sky, pink hues are the last, lingering reminders of daylight, as a canopy of stars emerges overhead. Glow-in-the-dark technology re-creates the luminous shine of a full moon and its reflection on the lake, where a loon and two chicks are still visible in the moonlight. On the sandy beach, the male camper rests on a rock while the female sits on a log; both are quietly enjoying each other’s company while taking in the beauty of their surroundings. Their profiles are softly illuminated by the warm glow of the campfire “burning” bright at the centre of the coin, not far from the pitched tent that is illuminated from within. SPECIAL FEATURES
