Growing up to four feet and weighing up to 75 pounds, the Beaver is the largest North American rodent.
Semi-aquatic, Beavers spend a considerable amount of time in water and are capable of submerging for extended periods of time. Protected by a thick coat of fur, they are thoroughly at home in deep water environments and often seek these areas to avoid their natural predators, which include mountain lions, wolves, and bobcats. Using their long, flat tails, they construct elaborate dams to shield their habitats and avoid predation.
This coin features a detailed depiction of a Beaver on its obverse. Bordered by a classic wreath design, the reverse contains a space for engraving.
This proof-like coin is minted in MerlinGold,® a proprietary brass alloy that simulates the look and feel of gold. Each coin comes packaged with a descriptive header card.
