Your coin was designed by Canadian artist Trevor Tennant and features a female and male plains bison standing side-by-side in the grassy landscape on a summer day. The differences between the two genders are striking when comparing the two side-by-side, with the bull (on the right) towering slightly over the cow (on the left). The bull appears all the more imposing, thanks to the thicker, taller mane on its head.
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with custom beauty box.
