This large two ounce fine silver $30 coin features a selectively coloured, close-up view of a white-tailed deer.  The finely engraved backdrop showcases the forest, one of the deer’s many habitats in Canada.  In Canada, the white-tailed deer is the most common and widely distributed large mammal. If you spot one, it is likely grazing in woodland edges and pastures. However, the deer startles easily; at the first sign of trouble, it raises the alarm by flagging its brown tail to reveal a white underside (hence its name) as it gallops out of sight. This is the third coin in the Imposing Icons series, and invites you to look deep into the eyes of the white-tailed deer. Mintage is limited to 2,500.  HST/GST exempt.


Did You Know?

The white-tailed deer is a fast runner—it can dash off at speeds of up to 58 km/h. The deer’s diet changes with the seasons: it eats plants and berries in the spring/summer, acorns and leftover grains in the fall, and grasses or sedges in the winter. If you spot a bedded fawn and there’s no sight of its mother, it’s not necessarily a sign of trouble. The doe is known to conceal her fawn and leave it unattended for long hours while she feeds.
