2005 Canadian $5 The Atlantic Walrus & Calf Limited Edition Silver Coin & Stamp Set
Once plentiful as far south as the St. Laurence Gulf, the Atlantic walrus fell prey to the whaling industry of the 19th century. Today, its range within Canada is limited to the eastern Arctic and Hudson Bay with occasional sightings along the Labrador coast. The current estimate of 15,000 walruses (in Canada and western Greenland) is a fraction of the robust populations that graced these regions just few generations ago.
The coin comes encapsulated and presented in a wooden case. It is protected by a sleeve which pictures a Walrus. It’s accompanied by a serialized booklet of authenticity.
Face Value: $5
