With this finely detailed silver coin, the Royal Canadian Mint commemorates this impressive mammal that once roamed parts of present-day Canada.The reverse design by Canadian artist Michael Skrepnik features a front profile view of a woolly mammoth, allowing the viewer to get a close glimpse at some of the animal’s unique features as verified by paleontologists from the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology. The shaggy fur, which grows longer as winter nears, is rendered in fine detail, as are the mammoth’s feet and shorter ears. The trunk, which ensured the mammoth could grasp, drink and communicate, is also faithfully represented. Perhaps most striking are the mammoth’s tusks, which curve outwards before curving back towards the base of the trunk. In the background, a mountainous landscape fades into the distance as the mammoth makes its way across the flatlands. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.SPECIAL FEATURES- First in the new Prehistoric Animals series!- Thanks to the environments that mammoth remains have been found in, they have become one of the most well-known species associated with the ice age.
