2019 50-cent Canada's Wildlife Treasures 5-coin Set

Meet five wildlife treasures that have a strong Canadian connection! From a big bear to a button-sized butterfly, this special set introduces you to five of our endemic animals — animals that are only found in Canada and nowhere else.

These all-Canadian wildlife treasures are tucked inside a colourful folder, which slides out of its sleeve and opens up like a magazine spread. In addition to the five coins, you’ll find information on each animal’s size and other fascinating facts, plus a map that shows you where these Canadian creatures are found.

Our 2019 Canada’s Wildlife Treasures was made possible with the collaboration of the Toronto Zoo. From breeding programs to educational activities, Canada’s largest zoo is fighting wildlife extinction while inspiring Canadians to protect our natural environment — for today and for the future.

So whether it’s an introduction to a new hobby or animal friend, this set is a fun way to get to know some “only in Canada” creatures that are part of what makes Canada… well, Canada!

Designed by artist Joel Kimmel, the coins in this set feature five of Canada’s endemic animals: Johansen’s Sulphur (Colias johanseni), Peary caribou (Rangifer tarandus pearyi), Copper redhorse (Moxostoma hubbsi), Vancouver Island marmot (Marmota vancouverensis) and Kermode bear (Ursus americanus kermodei).

Special Features:

• For collectors of all ages: This set’s wildlife theme will appeal to all collectors. It is a fun educational tool to introduce young Canadians to their animal neighbours or to a potential lifelong hobby: coin collecting!
• Rarely seen on our coins. Most of these animals have never appeared on a Canadian coin before.

The coins are set in blisters on the front panel of the presentation card to highlight the designs and enhance merchandising appeal.
