This fine silver coin showcases a proud national icon and a symbol of Canada’s North, in a continuing celebration of family bonds in the Canadian wilderness.DESIGN:The reverse design by Canadian artist Glen Loates features colour over the engraved portrait of a young barren-ground caribou. Barely a few weeks old, the calf is not yet weaned from its mother’s milk as it looks up and turns its head to curiously face the viewer. Selective colour enhances the detailed engraving while recreating the calf’s tan- and white-coloured fur, along with the darker colours of its eyes, nose and hooves. At its feet is a bright mix of pastel colours, which convey the springtime explosion of colourful new growth on the tundra in Canada’s North, where the lichen, purple saxifrage and forbs provide a nutritious meal for the engraved female caribou standing next to her young. Both mother and child will need their strength to make the long trek across the wideopen landscape depicted in the engraved background, where the nursery herd will join other caribou on the coastal plains. Also engraved on the reverse are the word 'CANADA', the face value '20 DOLLARS' and the year “2016”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.SPECIAL FEATURES:- A national icon and a symbol of Canada’s North is the subject of the 10th coin in this popular series, which features baby animals in the Canadian wilderness!- Selective colour lovingly showcases the baby caribou next to a finely detailed engraved depiction of its mother, as the female caribou grazes on the colourful blooms that dot the tundra.- Crafted from 99.99% pure silver with a limited mintage of 5,500.- A superb addition to any Canadiana-, wildlife- or nature-themed collection.- A heart-warming gift that celebrates a family’s special bond, or any momentous first steps!PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS:Composition: 99.99% fine silverMintage: 5,500Weight (g)*: 31.39Diameter (mm): 38Face Value: $20Finish: ProofEdge: SerratedArtist: Glen LoatesPackaging: Maroon clamshell with black beauty boxFinished size: 67 mm x 67 mmMaster Pack: 75LAUNCH DATE: August 2, 2016ADVERTISING DATE: May 2, 2016 *Customers located in Manitoba please be aware, this item is NOT tax exempt from PST.
