Highest-quality silver from the Mint. One ounce of 99.99% pure silver. Celebrate the emergence of the stunning breed that helped build the nation of Canada and survived near-extinction to emerge as one of Canada’s proud national symbols. The Canadian horse is the purest North American horse breed. DNA testing proves it to be unrelated to other North American breeds. A fine collector’s item or perfect gift for lovers of nature, horses and Canadiana. Comes beautifully packaged in a custom case featuring a full-colour image of the coin artwork. The reverse design by Canadian artist Claudio D’Angelo features a portrait of a galloping Canadian horse. The stunning image centres on the horse in full gallop across a grassy meadow. Its characteristic wavy mane and tail, fine graceful head and neck, and powerful musculature are rendered in striking detail, enhanced with a matte-proof finish. In the distant background, rolling farmland rises above a vast river. This creature is a uniquely Canadian symbol, as it is the purest North American horse breed.
