The peregrine falcon (Falco peregrinus) is one of nature’s most striking, beautiful, and graceful aerial predators. This 1/25 ounce pure gold collectable coin features a stunning peregrine design based on traditional Kwakwaka’wakw and Tlingit forms. Known for its breathtaking displays of flight agility, the bird can reach speeds over 300 km/h while stooping, making it the fastest animal on earth. Intimately tied to successful efforts to ban harmful DDT chemicals, and now a treasured sight for many Canadian city-dwellers, the peregrine is simultaneously one of the world’s most majestic birds, and a great symbol of adaptability and resurgence.
