Two new coins – hawk and cougar

March 7, 2016

I designed these two new releases from the Royal Canadian Mint:

Cougar bullion coin designed by Emily S. Damstra

The background field on this silver bullion coin has fine lines radiating from the center, which is a nice effect (though a bit difficult to capture in a photograph). Bullion coins are available from coin dealers but not directly from the Mint.

You can see the full specs for this silver coin here. The box it comes in shows my original drawing on the front:
