On the obverse of these proof silver products youll find a unique vision for this side of Canadian coinage. In the upper-left side of the display field is a smaller version of the typical Canadian obverse coinage, with Queen Elizabeth IIs right-profile effigy from Susanna Blunt included. Dominating the center of the design field is the cutout shape of the caribou.
The reverse of all 2017 $30 Canadian Silver Endangered Animal Cutout Woodland Caribou Coins features a breathtaking view of a rive cutting through a slice of Canadian wilderness that includes rolling grasslands in the foreground and forested mountains deep in the background field. Again, the image of the caribou is visible as a missing cutout, reflecting the potential for a Canada without its impressive native creatures.
