For Centuries, mariners have reported strange sightings of a massive, shipwrecking sea monster - The Kraken! The beast was said to be so big it could be mistaken for an island, with tentacles powerful enough to tear a ship in two.
This awe-inspiring creature now glowers fiercely from the face of a bullion coin produced by the Royal Canadian Mint: the first in a new Creates of the North Series celebrating the fantastic and mysterious creates of Canada's seas, lands and skies.
Kraken sightings in Canada date back as far as the 1700s, with reports of strange tentacled creatures in the waters off the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador. Photographs later confirmed something was out there and in 1878, a 17-metre squid washed up in Glovers Harbour in northeast Newfoundland.
This stunning coin contains 2 oz of fine .9999 Silver. It can be purchased in tubes of 14, with orders of 280 being sealed in a Monster Boxes.
