Its a very neat stylized design - please do let us know if you hear when it will be released into circulation.

There have been a few other peregrine coins in other countries, I have images of them along the top of the e-store page (http://www.species-at-risk.mb.ca/estore/e-pfrp-store.html)  For information on the coins themselves, move the cursor over the images, when I set up the store I added notes to each one of the images.  One even has a diamond for the peregrine's eye!

Here's the info from the Royal Canadian Mint Web page(under new releases):

It will be a $10 Fine Silver Coin.  Only 10,000 will be made.
These are general not for circulation, but for collectors.
Shipping begins mid November and the cost is $69.95 plus taxes.

I don't think the fine silver coin looks like a peregrine. It looks more like a parrot or a budgie to me. I know it is stylized but I never would have guessed that was a peregrine.

That has to be the saddest looking Peregrine I have ever seen...it appears to be more like West Coast Native Art.or a new design for the Fruit Loops box.
The folks that came up with this should really have a close look at a Peregrine. I think more detail for the coins would have been better...It appears to be the look that they are going for.
Wonder just how much it would cost to have someone come up this and hope that we like it  ???
I'm sitting on the fence about an e-mail to the Canadian Mint and Free Press.
Sorry, just my thoughts on this  :-\

No, no, Dennis, do not sit on the fence. Go for it, on behalf of all of us Phanatics. I'm sure that many of us agree with you. :-*

I, too, agree with you, Dennis.  In fact i find all of them are poor representations of what they are suppose to be.  The Mint has done so much better in the past.

The Canadian 2006 $5 coin and stamp set came with a booklet, it is a great set. The coin has great detail and is one of the ones TPC has at the top of the estore page.

 :) :) While watching the noon news today, they announced that there would be changes in how they produce the loonie and toonie, however, most importantly, they said a new series of quarters would be produced this year focusing on wildlife. The third quarter will have a peregrine falcon on it.  ;D ;D I had to share with the forum but didn't know where! This is phantastic news. Maybe they will ask Dennis for his expert input. 8)
