Have to admit, it doesn't look much like a peregrine to me....!

Nor to me Pam..........its looks more like a stylized raven that you would see on a totem pole.

Isn't this design also by Corrine Hunt, who did the Peregrine on the commemorative fifty cent (I think) coin, and also the designs of the Olympic 2010 medals?  If so it would reflect an aboriginal influence and perhaps even a Pacific coast version of the Peregrine.

I drove over to the Mint today after school and picked up some peregrine falcon coins for my Kinderchicklets. There were plain silver coins and coins with a little bit of colour on them. Each could be purchased at face value, $.25, but they would not sell me more than 8 of each kind today. They said I could come back tomorrow if I wanted to purchase more. There seemed to be quite a steady flow of people picking up any variety of the special edition wildlife coins. 8)

So........!!!??  What does it look like?!  I have seen several commercials on tv about, "the fastest animal in the world who thrive in our cities" (aka, the peregrine falcon), what does this design look like?

I might just pop over there tomorrow, bcbird. The Mint is very close to my school. Today, several of my Kinderchicklet's parents mentioned that they were going to take their children over to collect a few of these coins. 8)

:) :) 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)
