This coin, crafted in 99.99% fine silver (featuring edge lettering with the words "1OZ PURE SILVER 1OZ ARGENT PUR" engraved in a repeating pattern around the coin's edge), esteems the dominant and powerful bison. This endangered mammal (the largest in North America) has experienced a tumultuous past, and could be considered symbolic of the relationship between early settlers and First Nations communities. This coin offers a gripping portrait of two plains bison engaged in a ferocious struggle for dominance, a display that is tell-tale of mating season. This encounter is the focal point of the coin, bringing attention to the clouds of dust that rise up to engulf these vigorous creatures. This coin boasts a fineness of engraving that demonstrates the virtuosity of the Royal Canadian Mint's engravers, showcasing delicate details in the fur of these great beasts. This coin is polished to proof-perfection and features a limited mintage of 7,500; it will surely make a welcome addition to any Canadian or wildlife-based collection of fine silver coins.
