Special features:

Design:
Designed by Canadian artist Michelle Grant, your coin features six-time world champion bucking bronco, Grated Coconut, ridden by a brave bareback cowboy. Details like Grated Coconut’s “CS” shoulder freeze brand and “G-65” hip brand and the rider’s “1912” competitor number - a reminder of the Stampede’s inception year - come to life amidst a curling frame of intricate leather tooling inspired by the trophy saddle of Flores Ladue, wife of Stampede founder Guy Weadick.

Packaging:
• Coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint branded black clamshell case lined with flock and protected by a customized design sleeve.
