The species tends to roam widely through the Rocky Mountains, but are highly adaptive to a wide variety of environments within Canada. This coin is double struck with the Royal Canadian Mint's highest quality proof finish in 99.95% pure platinum. Mintage is extremely limited at only 200 pieces. As a pure platinum coin, this item is HST/GST exempt.


The Design:

The reverse design by Canadian artist Desmond McCaffrey features an image of two mature male white-tailed deer squaring off during the autumn rut. Designed to showcase the grace and power of two fighting bucks at the height of their strength, this image renders in fine detail two males locking their large multi-tined antler racks. With pleasing visual symmetry, the males face each other from the left and right sides of the image. They have just run at each other and now balance on their front legs in a powerful push for superiority. Their blunt-nosed muzzles are turned toward the viewer. Their variations of shading and rippling neck and back muscles are rendered in dimensional detail using advanced engraving techniques. The bucks fight in a large open field of sparse, dying grasses in late fall. Behind them is the dense and leafless autumnal boreal forest.
