Antlers crown its regal form, making the caribou (Rangifer tarandus) appear like the monarch of the Canadian wilderness on this fine silver coin. The colourful ode to a Canadian icon is a notable first: the first coin in our limited Canadian Mosaics series, and the first to feature an innovative colour technology that gives it the look and feel of a stained glass mosaic.

The reverse image by Jori van der Linde features a side-profile view of a caribou against a mountain backdrop, re-imagined in the style of mosaic art. Detailed engraving divides the image into different-sized segments resembling stained glass pieces. Colour Mosaic technology adds luminous colours while mimicking the appearance of filtered light, as the eye moves from the glassy blue sky intermixed with the coinÕs own proof finish, to the more opaque colours of the caribou. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

First-time use of new technology: introducing colour mosaic! Our latest colour innovation is paired with fine engraving in order to mimic the multi-coloured appearance of stained glass mosaicÑone that fits in the palm of your hand!
