Description

With its formidable rack of antlers, the caribou stands tall as a timeless emblem of our wildlife heritage. The classic Canadian icon commands attention on the reverse of this fine silver coin, where clean lines give the design a modern edge while placing the focus squarely on a culturally important species.

Designed by Steve McPhee, the reverse presents a contemporary portrait of the caribou in the Canadian wilderness. The carefully sculpted ungulate is positioned slightly left-of-centre, where it strikes a majestic pose as it turns its head and looks towards the right side of the coin. Viewed in side profile, the caribouÕs rack of antlers adds to its imposing stature, with the main beam rising skyward while the brow-tines point forward above its muzzle. The stylized rendering of the landscape provides a simple yet artistic backdrop, while the brilliance of the engraved elements is enhanced by the coinÕs specimen finish. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
