Why purchase this flawless 2017 Ancient Canada: Ogygopsis 1 oz. Antiqued Silver coin?

The second release of the Royal Canadian Mint's (RCM) Ancient Canada series features a fossilized ancient sea creature called an Ogygopsis. This remarkable coin is struck from 1 Troy oz. of .9999 fine silver with a technique similar to that used by the ancient Romans. As a result, each coin in the 5,500 coin limited mintage will have a unique, slightly irregular, rimless shape with a 38 mm minimum diameter.

Lacquered Antique finish

The reverse image features a life-sized replication of a fossilized dorsal exoskeleton of an Ogygopsis curated at the Alberta Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology. The hand-applied antique patina finish is preserved in a coat of lacquer. Inscribed "CANADA" and "OGYGOPSIS."

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is depicted on the obverse, as designed by Canadian artist Susanna Blunt, surrounded by the legend "ELIZABETH II," "2017," "D. G. REGINA" and "20 DOLLARS."
