This 2013 $5 gold coin is the fourth in the Royal Canadian Mint’s exciting new O Canada series focusing on iconic Canadian animals, this beautiful coin celebrates the great caribou—one of Canada’s most fascinating native species. Mintage is limited to 4,000. HST/GST exempt.


The Design:

The reverse design presents a portrait of the neck, face, and antlers of a male caribou. Presented in three-quarter profile, the male gazes directly at the viewer, his right eye and ear, specialized muzzle, and well-furred powerful neck presented to stunning effect. Atop his head, we see the lower portion of his sizeable, multi-branched antlers. In the background we see a rugged, stony valley dotted with pines and bisected, on the right side of the image, by a zig-zagging river. In the far distance, mountains rise to meet the horizon. The reverse also features a stylized caribou hoof print.
