2013 Canada $50 The Beaver 5oz. Fine Silver Coin (TAX Exempt)

The industrious beaver is a Canadian icon.

This 50-Dollar coin is certified to be 99.99% pure silver with a diameter of 65 millimetres and a metal weight of 5 ounces.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Emily Damstra features a portrait of a beaver family, its members immersed in the work of felling trees for their dam, lodge, and food cache. In the foreground, a grown beaver stands upright, hard at work chewing the trunk of a birch tree with its sharp incisors. Wood shavings cover the ground beneath the beaver's feet and around the base of the tree. The beaver itself stands on its back paws, counterbalanced by its large flat tail, holding the tree trunk with its dextrous front claws. Its small ears, eyes, and nose - which can seal themselves shut under water - are rendered in fine detail. Behind, another adult beaver and small kit work on either side of a felled log, trimming away bark and preparing the log for use. The broken bole of the felled tree is visible nearby. The beavers' food cache emerges from the centre of the background pond, while forested mountains loom in the distance.

The image occupies the entire reverse field and is engraved with the word 'CANADA,' the date '2013,' and the face value of '50 DOLLARS.' The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
