2021 Canada Bold Bison EHR Extra High Relief Pure Silver Proof Coin. Enjoy the stunning artistic 3D rendering of the bison as well as having a scarce high demand collectible. The wildlife portrait rises up from the coin's mirror-like surface to reach a height of nearly 6 mm - over four times higher than an Ultra High Relief (UHR) coin of the same diameter! Mintage is limited to 5,000.
Rendered in three-dimensional form, the bison's imposing features instantly command attention - especially against a high-shine finish that illuminates the depth of detail for maximum visual impact. The design by Canadian artist Derek C. Wicks presents 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. Simply stunning, this is the perfect fusion of modern technology and classic Canadiana.The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. Did you know that the bison is the largest and heaviest 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. Please verify your address during checkout. We are not responsible for any wrong or undeliverable addresses. You will receive our newsletter once a week.
