The Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) honors the endangered Woodland Caribou with this beautifully detailed proof struck from 1.7 Troy oz. of .9999 fine silver. This is the first release of a series dedicated to at-risk Canadian species, which features an RCM first - animal shaped cutouts, symbolic of how the landscape would appear if extinction occurs. This gorgeous 2017 Woodland Caribou Proof measures 54 mm in diameter, with a mintage limit of just 5,500.
Incredibly detailed design by Canadian artist Trevor Tennant
The reverse features the mountainous landscape of Western Canada including mountain peaks, grassy foothills, and a tree-lined river, with the distinct cutout shape of a woodland caribou in the foreground. Inscribed "CANADA," "2017" and "30 DOLLARS."
"ELIZABETH II" and "D. G. REGINA" frame the work of Canadian artist Susanna Blunt on the obverse: the beautifully sculpted likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is framed in a circle hovering above the caribou cutout.
