2020 Canada $10 Creatures of the North - The Kraken 2oz. .999 Silver (No Tax) May have marks or light toning. Image is an example of the coin.

Masterly crafted from the Royal Canadian Mint comes a new terrifying series bringing to life the mysterious mythical creatures that lurk the Nordic seas. The exceptional relief of this stunning 2 oz coin portrays the Kraken attacking a ship.

For as long as ships have sailed the seas, monsters have risen from the depths to strike terror in people’s hearts. One of the most frightening is the Kraken, a massive sea monster with tentacles so large, it can easily destroy an entire vessel, and drag it beneath the waves. From the Nordic countries to Greenland, South Africa and New Zealand, the Kraken appears on sea charts and in European lore as early as 1555.

In the 1700s, European settlers in Newfoundland and Labrador began reporting Kraken sightings. An early photograph confirmed the existence of strange tentacled creatures off Newfoundland and Labrador, but their super-sized potential did not come to light until a 17m long monster washed up in Glovers Harbour, Thimble Tickle Bay in 1878. The cryptic Kraken continues to elude scientists to this day, but recent underwater footage proves that giant mysteries do indeed lurk beneath the sea.
