The osprey (Pandion haliaetus) is a sea-dwelling bird of prey that can be found hunting above Canada's shores and waterways. This small raptor is brought to life in fine detail on this pure gold 1/25 ounce collectable coin. With a diet comprised of 99% fish, it is a fierce predator that has exceptional vision, knife-like feathers, and feet designed for plucking fish right out of the water. The osprey was declared the provincial bird of Nova Scotia in 1994.
All collectable coins have been previously owned. Conditions will vary.
