COIN INFORMATION

Humanity’s lack of knowledge and understanding for the world around it in ancient times often lead to the creation of fanciful creatures and deities to explain that which the mind could not reason with. One of the most famous creatures of the ancient world was the Kraken. Though it first originated in Scandinavian mythology in the 13th century as a beast lurking deep beneath the North Sea, its reach became far greater over the next 500 years.

By 1555, the Kraken was a horror story shared by sailors across the European continent and could be found on maps of the globe in such places as New Zealand and South Africa. Sightings of the Kraken around Canada date to the 1700s with most reports placing the beasts in the waters off Newfoundland and Labrador. What was believed as a mythical fear became a real-life nightmare when a squid measuring 55 feet in length washed up on the shores of Glovers Harbor in Newfoundland in 1878.

The obverse face of 2020 2 oz Silver Canadian Kraken Coins features the fourth-generation portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The first monarch portrait since the 1930s and the reign of King George VI to show the monarch without a crown, this effigy was designed in 2003 by Susanna Blunt for Canadian denominations.

On the reverse side, 2020 2 oz Silver Canadian Kraken Coins bear the image of a massive Kraken emerging from the water to completely destroy a wooden sailing vessel. Its masts snapping and sails in tatters, this ship is doomed for certain as the Kraken uses its long tentacles to snap the ship in half like a toothpick.

These 2020 2 oz Silver Canadian Kraken Coins are available to you today as the first of the Creatures of the North Series. The design was created by Gerald Gloade

    I must admit i didn’t know what to make of this coin when i first saw it and wasn’t sure whether i was going purchase it or no,but in the end i decided to purchase it and boy am i glad i did because it’s a BEAUTY,it’s one of those coins that you really need to have in the hand to appreciate the design,can’t wait for the next release in the series,thanks again Martin for the Super Fast Delivery ☺

    The design and the detail on the kraken is good. However the quality was not brilliant on mine. Bullion is mass produced so can be hit and miss quality wise in certain mints. Probably going to give this coin series a miss. The queen beasts are much better quality. I am flying their flag for the best 2oz coin range at the moment.
