The bighorn sheep is known for its mighty resolve as it conquers rugged terrain at seemingly impossible heights. The crowned head of CanadaÕs mountain slopes is the image of strength and resilience on the Zentangle¨-inspired reverse, where a finely engraved array of patterns form an exceptionally complex and wildly creative portrait of Ovis canadensis.

The bighorn sheep lends its likeness to an artistic re-imagining on the reverse, where an original concept by illustrator Jori van der Linde is brought to life by fine engraving and multiple finishes. Inspired by the Zentangle¨ method of drawing, a captivating combination of abstract patterns adds a sense of texture, depth and creative contrast to this creative portrait, as each motif fills the space within the outline of the sheepÕs distinctive curled horns and woolly features. The reverse includes the engraved face value Ò30 DOLLARSÓ, the year Ò2019Ó and the word ÒCANADAÓ. The obverse replicates one of the patterns from the reverse and features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Our THIRD Zentangle¨ coin is every bit as elaborate and artistic as the two previous ones (the wolf and the owl), which had collectors clamouring for more.

The Zentangle¨ Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. It was created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. "Zentangle" is a registered trademark of Zentangle, Inc. Learn more at zentangle.com.
