Description

Hauntingly beautiful, the aptly named snowy owl (Bubo scandiacus) makes a powerful impression after touching down on this 2 oz. 99.99% pure silver coin. Its reverse design is an engraved interpretation of Snowy Owl on Driftwood, an original work of art by internationally renowned wildlife artist Robert Bateman. In this portrait, Canada’s most famous owl has turned its attention away from the viewer, but there’s no mistaking the intensity of its piercing stare, which suggests a steely determination and a quiet strength.

“The snowy owl is a bird of the Arctic, however, very few of us are privileged to visit its summer breeding grounds on the tundra. Even if it were possible to do this, one would be very lucky to see a breeding pair. The area is so vast that the population spreads out and all but disappears. Its winter range in the south is limited to open agricultural land that has a normal winter snow cover where prey is easily visible. This owl is perched on some well-travelled driftwood along the edge of a winter lake. I enjoy speculating on the adventures that brought both owl and wood to this spot.”
