Regular price $75.00
/

This unique square shaped sterling silver gold plated coin features a stylized portrait of the barn owl (Tyto alba) highlighting its unusual facial features with the moon and wooden beams in the background. For centuries, the barn owl inhabited Europe’s barns and church steeples to feed on the mice that lived there. When settlers began clearing fields in North America, it was quick to take advantage of the new habitat that was being created in southern British Columbia and southern Ontario, becoming an ecological, environmentally-friendly form of pest control for Canada’s early farmers.

All collectable coins have been previously owned. Conditions will vary.
