People relate to its resilience, its ability - across the massive span of millennia and miles - to nourish itself and thrive in harsh, remote conditions. The Caribou teaches the lessons of survival in this land: the benefits of slow, steady progress borne of tireless effort; the safety of the herd against predators large and small; and an intrinsic interconnection with the world it inhabits. It is no surprise that this unique animal is a Canadian icon, celebrated since 1937 on Canada's 25-cent circulation coin, official animal of Newfoundland and Labrador, and shield-bearer of the Nunavut coat of arms. This coin is the fourth coin in the O Canada 1 oz.Each coin features a stylized caribou hoof print. Struck in premium proof finish with a mirrored background, this fine silver coin features caribou in their natural habitat.
Engraved in exquisite detail, the coin celebrates one of Canada's most important national icons. An excellent addition to any premium collection focused around nature or wildlife. Struck in 99.99% fine silver! This coin was designed by Pierre Leduc. It features a caribou cow and calf standing in the rugged terrain of the Canadian North.The mother stands on the right, her head turned toward her calf, her left eye peering at the viewer. Her tall antlers reach skyward atop her large head and strong neck. Beside her, the knobby-kneed calf peers shyly at its mother, waiting for her signal. The two stand in a grass-filled early summer valley. Behind them, their herd travels toward a river in the far distance. Rocky mountain peaks rise to meet the far-off horizon. Each coin is encapsulated and presented in a maroon clamshell case lined with flock. And protected by a customized full color'beauty box'.

Many coin dealers "search" all coins when they are received from the Mint. They "cherry-pick" the best coins. Then submit them to be graded, certified, and slabbed by PCGS, NGC, ANACS, etc.
When a dealer searches coins, those that they sell in original Mint packaging are only lesser quality coins. Photos: When a listing offers multiples of the same coin, one coin is picked at random and photographed. Since all coins offered in that listing are essentially identical, the coin photographed is representative of all coins offered. Surface areas that appear black on some proof coin photos are actually highly polished, mirror-bright metal reflecting the color of the camera.
Whenever possible, we use actual photos of our coins, rather than just "artist's conception" drawings from the Mint. We frequently update and upgrade the photos that appear with our listings, using improved cameras and lenses and better lighting.We will honor your requests for additional photos as quickly as our schedule permits.
