A low maximum mintage of only 7,500 coins means that this edition is sure to be sought after by collectors. The Royal Canadian Mint has rarely featured the white-tailed deer on its numismatic coins.

A thoughtful and valuable gift for nature lovers and art aficionados. The reverse design by Canadian artist Claudio D'Angelo features a white-tailed buck and doe leaping over a fallen pine tree.Capturing a powerful and energetic moment, this scene centers around the two leaping deer. In the foreground, the buck illustrates the "kick-off" stage of a deer's leaping motion, with forelegs bent under its torso and back legs fully extended. His large, powerful neck holds his antlered head aloft and his namesake tail extends up and behind, its bright underside alerting other deer to danger. Just behind him and slightly to the left side of the image, a doe illustrates the landing phase of the leap, as her front legs stretch out ahead of her and her head, neck, and body point downward, while her rear legs, just visible behind her partner, bend toward her belly. The sense of motion is subtly enhanced by the composition, in which doe, buck, and fallen tree share a common trajectory.
In the background, a tall conifer forest rises toward the sky. The scene is viewed from ground level, lending height and drama to the image. Each coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clam-shell with a custom beauty box. Are also available for an additional charge.

Since all coins offered in that listing are essentially identical, the coin photographed is representative of all coins offered. Surface areas that appear black on some proof coin photos are actually highly polished, mirror-bright metal reflecting the color of the camera. Whenever possible, we use actual photos of our coins, rather than just artists conception drawings from the Mint. We frequently update and upgrade the photos that appear with our listings, using improved cameras and lenses and better lighting. We will honor your requests for additional photos as quickly as our schedule permits.Unsearched All of the coins offered in this listing are unsearched. Many coin dealers search all coins when they are received from the Mint. They "cherry-pick" the best coins. Then submit them to be graded, certified, and slabbed by PCGS, NGC, ANACS, etc. When a dealer searches coins, those that they sell in original Mint packaging are only lesser quality coins.
