Design: The bighorn sheep lends its likeness to an artistic re-imagining on your coin, where an original concept by illustrator Jori van der Linde is brought to life by fine engraving and multiple finishes. Inspired by the Zentangle® method of drawing, a captivating combination of abstract patterns adds a sense of texture, depth and creative contrast to this creative portrait, as each motif fills the space within the outline of the sheep's distinctive curled horns and woolly features. The reverse includes the engraved face value "30 DOLLARS", the year "2019" and the word "CANADA". The obverse replicates one of the patterns from the reverse and features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. Ovis canadensis means sheep belonging to Canada. The bighorn sheep's split hooves allow it to step on ledges measuring as little as 5 centimetres!
Each hoof consists of a hard outer edge that can snag a protrusion of rock, while the pliable inner pad provides added grip. Its horns are never shed! The ram's horns can grow to a curled length of 127 centimetres, while the ewe's shorter horns measure roughly 30 centimetres long. The ridges in the horns represent one year of growth for the sheep after three years of age.However, in this highly stylized design they aren't meant to indicate the age of the sheep.
