Stocky and sure-footed, the bighorn sheep effortlessly ascends the steep slopes of Canada's Rocky Mountains. The male's curled horns are a symbol of status that determines its place in the herd's hierarchy—but should its dominance come into question, these horns become an imposing weapon. Rising up from the coin like the terrain it inhabits, the bighorn-shaped statuette captures the beauty and dauntless spirit of this iconic Canadian species.

Designed by big game sculptor Karl Lansing, your coin features a superb representation of an animal ambassador for Canada's mountainous landscape: the bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis). The muscular mammal rises up from the coin's silver surface, its authority unchallenged as it stands poised on a rocky outcrop and surveys its surroundings. Enhanced by opulent gold plating, the silver-cast sculpture truly shines thanks to the outstanding amount of detail—including the textured appearance of the bighorn's pelage, and the rings that line the ram's spiralled horns.
Your coin is encapsulated and housed in a wooden display case with a black beauty box.
