Why add this 2017 Canada Endangered Animal Cutout Silver GEM Proof to your collection?

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.

This 2017 Canada $30 Endangered Animal Cutout Silver Proof honoring the Woodland Caribou is presented in the original packaging as received from the RCM, encapsulated within the Mint's signature maroon clamshell case and black exterior box, accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

Unusual
This coin is impressive! The cut out is unusual and other design aspects are stunning! I'm glad I made this purchase.
Another unique issue from RCM
Wasn't sure what to expect with this cutout coin from RCM, as a previous release, the Yin & Yang coin's square cutout was a bit untidy.
This coin however doesn't exhibit that problem at all. The overall effect of the caribou's silhouette against a combination of frosted & mirrored background surfaces is really quite good. Very pleased with this coin.
