Orca Killer Whales $20 Lotus Shaped Silver
Get the Master of the Sea, an entire pod of the famed Orca or Killer Whale, on this stunningly dramatic, unusually-shaped pure silver scalloped lotus proof with the extremely low mintage limit of just 6,000!

The unmistakable black-and-white orca (Orcinus orca), perhaps better known as the killer whale, is an awe-inspiring emblem of North America's Pacific Coast, from Southern California all the way north to Alaska, and is known for the strong family bonds that are at the heart of the tight-knit groups (called pods) in which they live. This coin pays tribute to this highly intelligent and social mammal, whose ingenuity has long made it the master of its marine environment, as depicted on the Royal Canadian Mint innovative lotus-shaped proof, dramatically rendered by the fine engravers at the Mint in precious silver
