2006 NATIONAL PARKS - NAHANNI
North of the 60th parallel in the Northwest Territories flows one of the most spectacular wilderness rivers in the world. It is the backbone of Nahanni National Park Reserve of Canada, a remote wilderness treasure that is best accessed by floatplane and its natural treasures explored by kayak, raft or canoe. An unending feast of discoveries await river canyons up to 1,200 m (3,937 ft) deep; Virginia Falls with a vertical drop almost twice that of Niagara; unique landforms that escaped the Wisconsin glaciations; the largest known tufa mounds in Canada;
hotsprings and cave systems. Black and grizzly bears, wolves, moose, caribou, lynx, and wolverines share the reserve with 180 bird species, including aquatic birds, raptors and rare trumpeter swans. The Nahanni (from people over there far away ) will transport you to the untouched grandeur of ages past, a place of breathtaking beauty that has been expertly sculpted into the proof design of this 99.99% fine silver coin.
