The golden eyes of the great horned owl (Bubo virginianus) peer out of the forest as night falls on the Canadian wilderness. This fine silver collectable coin uses full colour and a glow in the dark effect to mimic the wide eyed gaze of this nocturnal predator. The owl's forward-facing eyes provide it with a largely binocular field of view. It has poor peripheral vision since its eyes cannot move from side-to-side. Instead, the owl can rotate its head 270 degrees to study its surroundings.
All collectable coins have been previously owned. Conditions will vary.
