2020 2oz Silver Canada Creatures of the North Kraken BU

The Royal Canadian Mint is excited to introduce the inaugural release of their new 2 oz silver double-thick piedfort style Creatures of the North series. We join them in their excitement after seeing this first offering, the 2020 2oz Silver Canada Creatures of the North Kraken BU. The series is poised to release two coins annually, primarily focused on exploring the monsters of which old-world legends abounded. This first release of The Kraken fully demonstrates the mint’s commitment to supply the series with great action scenes and top quality production.

Awesome Beast From The Depths!

As a legal tender offering by the Royal Canadian Mint, the obverse of this 2020 2oz Silver Canada Creatures of the North Kraken BU coin displays the right-facing effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, created by Susan Blunt. The background is filled with finely engraved lines forming a sunburst pattern. Inscriptions include “ELIZABETH II . 2020 . D . G. REGINA . 10 DOLLARS.”

The reverse features the massive, legendary beast of the sea, which mariners of old trembled even to whisper its name; the Kraken! The design is quite remarkable, following the belief that this monster sea creature was, or at least resembled a gigantic deep ocean squid. However, the scale of the Kraken compared to the ocean-going ship is massively larger than the ship. The creature is shown effortlessly ripping the helpless ship in two with its tentacles. This was indeed a legendary monster to be feared!

This action scene fills the center inset, with the waters of the ocean reaching to the horizon. Also, the micro-engraved laser maple leaf privy security feature is set within the main design area, as well as the 9999 purity. The rimband includes the radial sunburst lines and the inscriptions, “CANADA . FINE SILVER . 2 OZ . ARGENT PUR.”

This is very fine introduction to this highly anticipated new 2 oz double-thick piedfort style silver bullion series, Creatures of the North. We are looking forward to see how the series continues to develop over the coming releases.
