2016 1/4 oz. Gold Snow Falcon

Limited Mintage | Royal Canadian Mint Exclusive

The snow falcon has been prized by humans as a hunting companion since ancient times. Associated not only with falconry but also with royalty and nobility, and a celebrated circumpolar Arctic coastal dweller, the snow falcon — the largest of the falcon species — makes a fitting subject for the Royal Canadian Mint’s stunning 2016 gold bullion coin.
