OUR NEWEST EHR COIN WITH A PROOF FINISH! The follow-up to 2020’s. Coin, this wildlife portrait features Extraordinarily High Relief (EHR) engraving that elevates the art to breathtaking effect. OVER 6 MM OF HEIGHT! On your coin’s reverse, the engraved relief soars to a height of over 6 mm! It’s an incredible feat of engineering, especially when you consider that Ultra High Relief coins of the same diameter typically reach only 1.4 mm of height. HIGH RELIEF, HIGH SHINE! The incomparable shine of a mirror-like finish illuminates all the intricately sculpted details that add realism to the art. A LIMITED-EDITION WORK OF ART! Mintage is limited to just 5,000 coins worldwide. A PROUD PORTRAIT OF THE BISON! One of our most intricately detailed portraits of the bison yet! From start to finish, this EHR coin is designed to leave a lasting impression and it’s a fitting tribute to the titan of the Canadian prairies. The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins. On your coin’s reverse, Canadian artist Derek C. Wicks has created a striking three-quarter portrait of a bison that has a solemn expression as it gazes towards the right. Its unique features – the upturned horns, the muscled hump behind the shoulder – and the textural variations of its fur are all accentuated by the extraordinary high relief, which allows for a greater depth of engraved details. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The bison is the largest and. Land animal in Canada. A male or bull stands tall at 2 metres high and can weigh more than a tonne! Its hump isn’t composed of fat – it’s all muscle, supported by vertebrae. That hump comes in handy in the winter, when the bison uses its head (and hump) to push snow out of its way. Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box. 99.99% pure silver. Wicks (reverse), Susanna Blunt (obverse).
