1/2 oz. Fine Silver Coin - Orca (2013) – ANACS First Release Limited Edition 488

One of the best designs in the sold out 12-coin O’ Canada series. The design by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc shows a powerful image orca. Facing toward the left side of the coin, the massive sea mammal is entirely outside of the water with the exception of its tail. Framing the reverse image is an outer band featuring the word “CANADA,” the date “2013,” and the face value of “10 DOLLARS,” as well as a small stylized orca tail fin. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
 
The orca coins have a shockingly low mintage of just 40,000 coins. These coins have been certified in perfect SP70 condition by ANACS, have First Release status and are part of a defined limited edition of just 488 coins. Their large diameter of 34 mm shows of the incredible fine detail of the design to its maximum.
