This is an exquisite coin with the image of the white-tailed deer. The animal is common across much of the southern Canada, but still seeing one is a treat for nature lovers. Now the symbol is available for viewing all year round!
The coin designed by Desmond McCaffrey features an image of two mature male white-tailed deer squaring off in the autumn rut. It shows the grace and power of these two fighting animals at the height of their strength. The image renders in fine details the males locking their large antler racks and balancing on their front legs in a powerful push. Their muzzles are turned towards the viewer. They fight in an open field of sparse, dying grasses. Behind them there is a dense and leafless autumnal forest.
The shading and rippling neck and back muscles are rendered in dimensional details with the use of advanced engraving techniques.
The coin is presented in a maroon clamshell with a beauty box branded with the Royal Canadian Mint logo.
