Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Canada is a big, beautiful country filled with awe-inspiring sights—from imposing landscapes to rare sightings of animals that represent our untamed spirit. The Imposing Icons series celebrates Canada’s rugged beauty by inviting you to get up close and personal with our wild animal icons. Splendidly engraved as a backdrop, the spaces they inhabit are every bit as captivating as our picture-perfect portrait of each species.

There was a time when free-roaming herds of bison dominated the Canadian prairie. Today, this grassland icon is found in protected areas in the west and north. It is Canada’s largest land animal, thanks in part to the muscular shoulder hump and a coat of thick fur that adds to its mighty appearance. Our Imposing Icons series ends with a species of great historical and cultural importance to Canadians. Its design is a close encounter that is made possible by the coin’s large (50 mm) diameter, and by its captivating mix of selective colour and exceptional engraving.

Designed by artist Maurade Baynton, the reverse features a selectively coloured, close-up view of the plains bison (Bison bison bison). The finely engraved backdrop takes you into the heart of the Canadian Prairies and represents the traditional grassland habitat of this iconic Canadian species. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
