2020 $10 O Canada - Beaver Fine Silver (No Tax)

The O Canada! series from the Royal Canadian Mint is a six-part celebration of what makes our homeland unique. Each coin features a different artist's take on the icons and sights that have shaped this nation's image and filled Canadian hearts with pride.

The Royal Canadian Mint's O Canada! series continues with a special tribute to an iconic Canadian animal. The beaver is synonymous with Canada's wilderness and the waterways that make up our beautiful country. It's a community-minded creature that is well adapted to its environment—qualities that exemplify the Canadian spirit. This industrious builder also played a major role in our nation's past. In fact, no other creature has shaped our nation's history like the busy beaver, whose pelt fuelled the economic and social development of modern Canada.

For these reasons and more, the beaver occupies a place of honour in our hearts and on this coin.

Designed by Canadian artist June Steube, the reverse captures the majesty of an official emblem that embodies the history, landscape and wild spirit of Canada. The busy beaver (Castor canadensis) is shown peacefully standing on a pile of gnawed branches near the water's edge in one of Canada's many lakes and streams. The reverse includes the curve text "CANADA" above a maple flourish and the year "2020". The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
