In 2013, the Royal Canadian Mint concluded its Wildlife Series with the Canadian Silver Wood Bison Coin. As the last coin to be released in this exclusive series, this piece generated a great deal of excitement among coin collectors. However, its low mintage of 1,000,000 and it’s desirability amongst collectors makes it a hard piece to find. This coin is the finishing touch to a masterfully created collection that celebrates the ecological and living wonders of the Canadian landscape.
For the final destination on their journey through Canada, the Wildlife Series takes coin collectors to visit the mighty wood bison in its native forest habitat. This coin features the majestic creature trudging purposefully through its snowy and densely wooded home. From the gentle strokes used to convey the intricately depicted bison fur to the fluid lines that capture the texture of the newly fallen snow, collectors cannot help but appreciate the meticulous amount of detail rendered on such a small surface.
