Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
This coin, crafted in 99.99% fine silver (featuring edge lettering with the words "1OZ PURE SILVER 1OZ ARGENT PUR" engraved in a repeating pattern around the coin's edge), esteems the calm yet unpredictable bison. This endangered mammal (the largest in North America) has experienced a tumultuous past, and could be considered symbolic of the relationship between early settlers and First Nations communities. The coin offers a tender portrait of a bison family, showing a male, female and child bison from different perspectives, captured in a moment of rest. The young bison turns his gaze toward a bird in the foreground of the image, likely in youthful curiousity. This coin boasts a fineness of engraving that demonstrates the virtuosity of the Royal Canadian Mint's engravers, showcasing delicate details in not only the fur and features of these great beasts, but also in the hyper-realism of the tufts of grass they lounge on. This coin is polished to proof-perfection and features a limited mintage of 7,500; it will surely make a welcome addition to any Canadian or wildlife-based collection of fine silver coins.
