Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Walking in the footsteps of the woodland caribou (Rangifer tarandus-caribou) allows for a glimpse of Canada’s unspoiled natural beauty—of a vast landscape and a rugged wilderness that seems untouched by time. This fine silver coin celebrates a beloved Canadian species and a national icon that is at home in the remote areas of Canada’s expansive boreal forest. RCM first! Striking edge patterning features animal prints that are carefully engraved all along the coin’s edge in a continuous pattern—a creative tie-in to the reverse image itself.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Claudio D’Angelo features a side profile view of a woodland caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou) in Canada’s northern boreal forest. Detailed engraving captures the both the ungulate and the scenery in stunning detail, all enhanced by the use of various finishing techniques. In the background, the tall coniferous trees line the edges of a still lake; the only sense of movement comes from the stocky and long-legged caribou, whose large rack of antlers naturally draws the viewer’s eye. As the caribou moves along the sandy lakeshore, its hooves leave a trail of prints. The entire design gains an added sense of movement through the caribou’s distinctive hoof prints, which are engraved on the coin’s edge in a continuous pattern.

This superb wildlife portrait of an elusive woodland caribou captures the majesty of the Canadian wilderness. A wonderful collectible that celebrates the beauty of nature and wildlife, and a timeless gift for a nature lover or outdoor enthusiast.
