Designed by Canadian artist Claudio D’Angelo, your coin features a side profile view of a woodland caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou) in Canada’s northern boreal forest. Detailed engraving captures the both the ungulate and the scenery in stunning detail, all enhanced by the use of various finishing techniques. In the background, the tall coniferous trees line the edges of a still lake; the only sense of movement comes from the stocky and long-legged caribou, whose large rack of antlers naturally draws the viewer’s eye. As the caribou moves along the sandy lakeshore, its hooves leave a trail of prints. The entire design gains an added sense of movement through the caribou’s distinctive hoof prints, which are engraved on the coin’s edge in a continuous pattern.
