Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
This 2015 $125 proof-quality pure silver coin is only the second coin ever minted on the Royal Canadian Mint's unique new 85-millimetre blank! It celebrates the 350th anniversary of the introduction of the Canadian Horse, a horse which has survived near extinction to emerge as one of Canada's official national symbols!

The reverse design by Canadian artist Michelle Grant features a portrait of three Canadian Horses bounding through a cascade of maple leaves. In the centre of the image, a stallion leaps toward the viewer across a grassy field. A cascade of maple leaves spin clockwise around him. Two other Canadian Horses race toward him in the left background. The leaves are engraved in multiple textures to underscore the diverse history of the Little Iron Horse that is so intertwined with the development of Canada. The coin's exceptionally large diameter allows for an intricately detailed reverse design to highlight the celebrated beauty of this creature.

This coin was struck in a half-kilogram (500 grams) of 99.99% pure silver in a Proof finish, the highest quality finish available from the Royal Canadian Mint. With a diameter of more than 8 centimetres, the size and weight of the coin are impressive.  The Royal Canadian Mint has combined exceptional artistry, intrinsic pure silver value, and a low mintage to create a collectable worthy of a true heirloom coin collection. As a pure silver coin, this item is GST/HST-exempt.
