The elk (or wapiti) cuts a distinctive figure in the grasslands and forests of western Canada and Ontario—and on this pure silver coin. The stately beauty of this iconic species shines bright in the form of a gold-plated, silver-cast statuette that rises up from the coin's surface. The male elk's towering rack of antlers is particularly imposing as the animal lifts its head towards the sky to release its bugling cry, which can easily shatter the early morning silence of an autumn day.

Designed by Canadian big game sculptor Karl Lansing, your coin presents a stunning rendition of one of Canada's most iconic species: the elk (Cervus canadensis). Magnificent gold plating highlights the sculptured details that convey the ungulate's wild beauty through the uniquely shaped, silver statuette that rises up from the coin's surface. The elk's solid build and imposing antlers are on full display, as is the varied texture of its fur.
