2015 Canada $20 North American Sportfish: Largemouth Bass (No Tax)

The first issue in the Royal Canadian Mint's new North American Sport Fish series features the feisty and fascinating largemouth bass. This exciting series will include four fine silver coins, as well as two premium versions struck in gold and platinum.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Curtis Atwater presents a dynamic portrait of a largemouth bass leaping from a tree-lined lake. Viewed from its right front side with its tail arching to the right, the largemouth seems to hover above the lake below. The large mouth from which it gets its common name is open wide, displaying its strong lower jaw. The fish's shimmering scales, delicate fins and bony dorsal fin, along with the water spraying from it as it leaps, are engraved in stunning detail. In the distant background, the shore is lined in tall conifers.
