Canada is one of the largest nations on Earth by landmass area, but it is far from the most populous. In fact, Canada is home to a population roughly the size of the US state of California, leaving vast stretches of wilderness uninhabited and largely untouched by mankind.
In these regions, creatures such as the Woodland Caribou roam free without fear of overhunting by mankind. The caribou is one of the more elusive species to roam the North American continent, and largely calls the boreal forests of Canada its home. This 2017 1 oz Proof Canadian Silver Natures Impressions Woodland Caribou Coin features a design by Claudio DAngelo.
On the coins reverse youll find the enhanced image of a woodland caribou as its walks along snow-covered ground just at the edge of one of Canadas massive boreal forests. In the snow youll notice the unique tracks of the Caribou.
The edge of these 2017 1 oz Proof Canadian Silver Natures Impressions Woodland Caribou coins feature the first-ever use of edge striking by the Royal Canadian Mint. Rather than a traditional serrated edge, these coins have a flat, plain edge that includes caribou tracks running round the outside.
On the obverse of each Woodland Caribou coin youll find the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt, these design has been in use on Canadian coinage since 2004.
The Royal Canadian Mint ships each 2017 1 oz Proof Canadian Silver Natures Impressions Woodland Caribou coin inside of its classic maroon clamshell, which includes a themed shipping beauty box with full-color artwork.
