Strength, power, resilience – the very qualities that inspire awe for the mighty bison are beautifully captured in Robert Bateman’s Weather Watch - Bison. Rendered in 99.99% pure silver, its portrait of a bison at rest – calm but still alert, and ready to weather any storm – reflects the artist’s appreciation for our wildlife heritage, and his commitment to fostering deep connections with the natural world through realism. HST/GST exempt.
The coin’s reverse features an engraved rendering of Weather Watch – Bison by Canadian artist Robert Bateman. Shown in side-profile, a bison (Bison bison) remains alert while calmly resting on a sandy bank in the open grasslands. The reverse includes the text “CANADA 2024”, the denomination of “30 DOLLARS” and an engraved reproduction of the artist’s signature. The obverse features a nature-themed pattern and the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The obverse also bears a special marking that includes four pearls symbolizing the four effigies that have graced Canadian coins and the double date of her reign.
