At home in the rangelands of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, the bighorn sheep is the embodiment of the rugged alpine wilderness it inhabits. The ram’s formidable curved horns endow it with dignified nobility on this .99999 pure gold coin, where its ability to ascend to seemingly impossible heights is the essence of true conquest. Mintage is limited to 400. HST/GST exempt.

The Design:

The reverse design by Curtis Atwater captures the majestic nature of both a wildlife icon and its spectacular alpine habitat. Finely engraved details convey the splendour of the peaks, forest valleys and rocky slopes of the Canadian Rockies. However, the focal point is the frontal depiction of a bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis)—specifically the ram, whose distinctive horns are instantly associated with this agile species. Viewed from a slightly lower perspective, these defining features add to the muscular ram’s already imposing stature, even in the midst of such a spellbinding landscape. Also engraved on the reverse is the word “CANADA” and the year “2018”.

An engraved ode to a majestic Canadian icon in an equally majestic setting: the breathtaking slopes of the Canada’s Rocky Mountains.
