I will show you some Canadian commemorative coins, in no specific order or value.
The forty seventh coin is a 2014 CAD $20 "Bobcat".
This coin weights 7.96g (1/4oz) with 99.99% silver purity and Specimen finish. Its mintage was 223,496 units and the issue price was CAD $20. It is the fourteenth coin in the "Twenty for Twenty" series.
The bobcat (Lynx rufus) is a nocturnal hunter that can be found from southern Canada all the way to northern Mexico. In Canada, the population of bobcats is quite limited, due first to the level of snow depth, as its paws cannot support its weight on the snow efficiently, and secondly, due to the presence of the Canadian lynx, who has the advantage of large, padded feet. The bobcat was an impressive entity to early European settlers, and has long been a part of some First Nations mythologies. It is said that the bobcat is twinned with the coyote in a theme of duality, as opposed yet similar entities that represent the fog and the wind, respectively.
The reverse was designed by Ken Ryan. It features a portrait of a bobcat in mid-pounce, lunging at some unseen prey.
