Coin Story

The Capercaillie, or Mountain Cock, is the largest of all grouse species and lives in conifer-dominated, open mountain forests with sandy areas for sand bathing and possibility to start fly as well as little disturbance by humans. Due to staying at the same place all the year long there has to be enough food like blueberries, spruce needles and insects.

Reverse Design

The reverse features a Capercaillie in ultra high relief (up to 9/10mm). It captures the capercaillie in a fascinating way. The antique finish of the coin give it the final touch! A true piece of art.

Obverse Design

The obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the year of issue and the denomination of the coin.

Packaging

The Swiss Wildlife - Capercaillie silver coin comes encapsulated with a Certificate of Authenticity and special frame.
