2015 Canada $20 Beaver at Work Fine Silver Coin (TAX Exempt) 130637

The beaver is one of Canada's most beloved and iconic animals, one that is indelibly linked to Canada's early history. Known for its persistence, resourcefulness and hard work, the beaver has endeared itself to Canadians. Now, the Royal Canadian Mint pays tribute to this industrious animal and its admirable qualities with this selectively coloured coin.

The reverse design by Canadian artist John Mardon depicts a beaver (Castor canadensis) in its natural environment. The beaver's brown-coloured fur stands out in greater detail thanks to the use of selective colouring, which highlights the subtle variations in the fur's hue. Its famously flat, almost paddle-like tail is partially submerged beneath the blue lake water as the beaver stands upon the coarse shoreline upon its webbed hind paws. At the water's edge, the beaver is busily using its razor-sharp incisors to cut down a tree. Had the beaver remained hidden underwater, the many gnawed stumps that dot the engraved landscape still would testify to the hardworking creature's presence nearby.
