This 25-cent Gilded 5 oz. Silver Big Coin produced by the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) commemorates the 50th Anniversary of the 1967 Canadian Centennial circulation coin series designed by Canadian artist Alex Colville. This impressive coin struck from 5 Troy oz. of .9999 fine silver replicates the original 1967 25-cent denomination coin featuring the image of a bobcat, enhanced with the application of selective gold plating. The 65.25mm diameter 2017 Gilt Silver Proof has a weight of 157.6 g, with a limited mintage of no more than 2,150.

The 1967 Canadian Centennial 25-Cent coin design

Colville's incredibly detailed bobcat appears on the reverse, gold-plated, stalking unseen prey, surrounded by a beaded border and gilded rim. "25 CENTS" is inscribed above, while "CANADA 1867-2017" is below.

The obverse features Arnold Machin's "tiara portrait" of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as struck on the Canadian Centennial series in 1967. Inscriptions include "ELIZABETH II" and "D. G. REGINA."
