Product Description

This endangered wildlife set, jam-packed with a coin, stamps and more, offers an incredible value!

Sold out at the Mint!The elusive loon is as pervasive a symbol of Canada as you'll find anywhere in the Great White North. The loon is reclusive, solitary, and prefers to nest in secluded lakes. This large bird, with a wingspan up to 5 feet, is adapted to hunting underwater. The loon is able to fish by diving to depths of up to 230 feet! Its long pointed beak enables it to easily snare the fish.

When the mint issued the $1 circulation coins with the loon on them, they quickly became universally known as "loonies". Now here's a unique, one-time-only loonie design - available only in this collection! This handsome set, complete with mint block of stamps and proof coin, represents an excellent opportunity to show your appreciation for this unique bird!
