Description

This 2014 $20 coin is elegant in its beautiful simplicity, and marks the launch of a new series from the Royal Canadian Mint depicting imagery of the serene white-tailed deer of Canada, the provincial animal of Saskatchewan. The species tends to roam widely through the Rocky Mountains , but are highly adaptive to a wide variety of environments within Canada. Crafted in one ounce of 99.99% pure silver, this coin features superior craftsmanship and engraving from the Mint to truly pay homage to this noble creature. This coin features edge lettering boasting its metal weight (one troy ounce), and features a low mintage of 7,500 coins. HST/GST exempt. 

 

 The Design:

The reverse design by Canadian artist Desmond McCaffrey features a three-quarter profile portrait of a male white-tailed deer. Designed to showcase the singular beauty of a mature male white-tailed deer at the height of its strength, this image renders in fine detail the 10-point antler rack, large ears, distinctive eyes and muzzle, and strong neck and back of its subject. The antlers, which will be shed soon after they have reached their peak growth for the year, bear tines that point sharply upward and bend slightly forward. The lighter colouration of its inner ear, eyes, nose, and lower jaw, along with the rippling muscles of its powerful neck and back, are portrayed in dimensional detail by Royal Canadian Mint engravers.
