Royal Canadian Mint

The Beaver - 5 oz Fine Silver - Mintage: 1,500 (2013)

Shipping calculated at checkout.

Castor canadensis played a major role in Canada’s colonial history, becoming one of the primary motivators for the European explorers of the 17TH century to forego their search for a passage to Asia and focus instead on the natural resources offered by the North American continent. With fur at its zenith in European fashions, beaver pelt hats became a product lucrative enough to feed settlement of the “new” continent by England and France.
