2022 Canada $30 Snowy Owl on Driftwood by Robert Bateman Fine Silver Coin (No Tax)

Hauntingly beautiful, the aptly named snowy owl (Bubo scandiacus) makes a powerful impression after touching down on this 2 oz. 99.99% pure silver coin. Its reverse design is an engraved interpretation of Snowy Owl on Driftwood, an original work of art by internationally renowned wildlife artist Robert Bateman. In this portrait, Canada’s most famous owl has turned its attention away from the viewer, but there’s no mistaking the intensity of its piercing stare, which suggests a steely determination and a quiet strength.

Robert Bateman is an advocate of wildlife education through learning initiatives, such as those carried out by the Bateman Foundation (batemanfoundation.org). Based in Victoria, B.C., the Foundation oversees the Bateman Gallery of Nature, home to the largest permanent collection of Bateman’s original works. The artist has also donated millions of dollars’ worth of original art and limited-edition prints throughout the years to help fund conservation efforts across Canada.

The coin’s reverse features an engraved interpretation of Snowy Owl on Driftwood by Canadian wildlife artist Robert Bateman. A snowy owl (Bubo scandiacus) stares into the distance while regally perched on a pile of driftwood on the edge of a sandy shore. The reverse includes the text “CANADA 2022”, the denomination of “30 DOLLARS” and an engraved reproduction of the artist’s signature. The obverse features a field pattern and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
