2006 Canada $20 National Parks Nahanni National Park NWT Fine Silver (No Tax)

As is typical of coins from this year, the outer cardboard sleeve might have some light wear

In 2005 and 2006, the Royal Canadian Mint released the National Parks Series. This is the fourth coin in the series. Other coins in the series include the 2005 North Pacific Rim National Park Reserve of Canada, 2005 Mingan Archipelago National Park Reserve of Canada, 2006 Georgian Bay Islands National Park, and 2006 Jasper National Park of Canada.

North of the 60th parallel in the Northwest Territories flows one of the most spectacular wilderness rivers in the world. It is the backbone of Nahanni National Park Reserve of Canada, a remote wilderness treasure that is best accessed by floatplane and its natural treasures explored by kayak, raft or canoe.

An unending feast of discoveries await river canyons up to 1,200 m (3,937 ft) deep; Virginia Falls with a vertical drop almost twice that of Niagara; unique landforms that escaped the Wisconsin glaciations; the largest known tufa mounds in Canada; hot springs and cave systems.

Black and grizzly bears, wolves, moose, caribou, lynx, and wolverines share the reserve with 180 bird species, including aquatic birds, raptors and rare trumpeter swans.

The Nahanni (from people over there far away ) will transport you to the untouched grandeur of ages past, a place of breathtaking beauty that has been expertly sculpted into the proof design of this 99.99% fine silver coin. Discover the best that Canada's national parks have to offer.
