The Silver Peregrine Falcon is the first coin to be released in the Royal Canadian Mint’s new “Birds of Prey” series. The Peregrine Falcon is limited to 1,000,000 coins and contains one ounce of .999 fine silver. Building on the success of the Canadian Wildlife Series, the Royal Canadian mint will be releasing a total of four coins for the Birds of Prey Series. Two coins will be released in 2014 and two more coins will be released in 2015. The Canadian Silver Peregrine Falcon is the first of the two coins that will be released in 2014. The 2014 1 oz Canadian Silver Peregrine Falcon features a design created by artist Emily Damstra. The Peregrine Falcon is renowned for its speed, and is considered the fastest member of the animal kingdom (242 mph). The design of the coin depicts a swooping Peregrine Falcon, talons outstretched, ready to catch its prey. The obverse side of the coin depicts the profile of Queen Elizabeth II designed by renowned Canadian artist Susanna Blunt. Beneath the profile is the date as well as the face value “5 dollars.”
