2013 $10 O Canada - Orca (#10) Fine Silver (TAX Exempt)

The 10th coin in the Royal Canadian Mint's exciting new O Canada series focusing on iconic Canadian images, this beautiful coin celebrates one of Canada's most fascinating marine species-the orca.

This coin is certified to be 99.99% silver with a diameter of 34 millimetres and a metal weight of 15.87 grams. The reverse design by Canadian artists Pierre Leduc presents a side view of a powerful breaching orca. Facing toward the left side of the coin, the massive sea mammal is entirely outside of the water with the exception of its tail.

Its tall dorsal fin and muscular body convey the sense of its exceptional size and strength. The expertly engraved image reveals the orca's distinctive markings to stunning effect, from the light eye patch above its left eye to the distinctive underbody and saddle markings of the species. Water washes away from the orca's body in torrents as it lifts itself from its fluid domain.

In the background we see the Northwest Pacific t coast with its rocky shoreline and tall, majestic evergreens. The reverse image is framed with a border engraved with the word "CANADA," the date "2013," the face value of "10 DOLLARS," and a stylized orca tail fin. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
