Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
The first ever $100 face value silver coin from the Royal Canadian Mint captures the might and majesty of one of Canada’s most iconic mammals: the Bison. Struck with one ounce of 9999 pure silver, this exquisitely engraved depiction of the prairie’s most noble beast is now available from Canadian Coin & Currency! A dynamic image of one of Canada’s most historic, majestic, and iconic land mammals in its natural environment exquisitely engraved on a stunning fine silver coin.

The reverse image by Canadian artist Claudio D’Angelo portrays three members of a stampeding bison herd racing across the prairies. Seen in profile from their left side, the three massive creatures illustrate the movement and momentum of the bison in full gallop, its massive chest and head held low beneath the hump of its shaggy back as its furred forelegs move together in opposition to its long slender back legs. The three large animals fly across a high-grassed prairie plain, each blade of grass, along with the shaggy fur of the animals, rendered in exquisite detail by Royal Canadian Mint engravers. In the distant background, the prairie gives way to foothills that are backed by a jagged mountain whose base is ringed with conifers. Above the distant horizon, a massive cloud bank gathers in the silver sky. While the artistry of the design illustrates the beauty and power of the bison, the exceptional textural treatment illustrates the masterful technique by which the engravers have achieved depth and tone through engraving alone.

5 of 5 Beautiful Coin! May 21, 2014
Reviewer: Joanne from Innisfil  
I just got this coin and it is really beautiful. I'm hoping to get the whole series. I have one, two and three so far and each coin is really well done. I do hope the Canadian Mint will bring the clam shell cases back for the rest of this series. These $100 dollar coins deserve to be show cased in something more than a cardboard box as coins two and three are. Many thanks Canadian Coin and Currency for the lovely coin and very speedy delivery. You have a happy customer!  :)

Just got this coin today and was extremely pleased with it.  My only mistake was not buying more than one.
