For as long as humanity has been sailing the oceans of the world, myths have existed about horrific creatures haunting the depths out of sight of humans. These creatures were always believed to be mythical in origin and based on the lack of knowledge of ancient societies, but one of those creatures is, at the very least, based on a real species and was surely the work of the over-active imagination of sailors.
The Kraken features as the first in a new Creatures of the North Series from the Royal Canadian Mint. All 2020 2 oz Canadian Silver Kraken Coins in this listing are available to you as unique 2 oz silver bullion coins in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins arrive with an individual plastic flip or a mint tube of 14 coins. Each one is twice as thick as the standard 1 oz silver bullion coin of the Royal Canadian Mint.
On the obverse face of the 2020 2 oz Canadian Silver Kraken Coin, you will find the right-profile bust of Queen Elizabeth II. Created in 2003, this is the fourth-generation effigy of Her Majesty on Canadian coins during her reign and it was created by Susanna Blunt, who became just the second Canadian artist to develop a monarch portrait in the process.
The reverse side of 2020 2oz Canadian Silver Kraken Coin features a terrifying sight for any sailor of the ancient or modern world. The wooden sailing vessel depicted has been attacked by an aggressive Kraken. The massive beasts splits the wooden ship in half, almost certainly dooming its crew to a watery fate in Davey Jones locker.
