Engraved in exquisite detail and set against the backdrop of the Canadian Arctic

With about 2.4 million caribou roaming freely through the vast Canadian wilderness, our nation is home to one of the world's largest populations. Native to Canada, four subspecies of Rangifer tarandus occupy tundra and boreal zones spanning from the west coast to Newfoundland, and from the USA-Canada border to Ellesmere Island. As exceptional travelers, caribou cover more ground in their migrations than any other land animal: in fact, some of Canada's caribou populations travel up to 5,000 kilometres each year.

The magnificent caribou is the star of this beautiful 1-kg pure gold coin. With an extremely limited mintage of only 20 coins available worldwide, it represents an exceptional opportunity for coin enthusiasts! Order your coin today!

Design
Designed by Canadian artist Trevor Tennant, your coin features a male and female caribou standing together, set against the backdrop of the Canadian Arctic. The large male stands with his front left leg lifted, antlers presented to stunning effect, his powerful neck and large head lowered slightly as it seems to sniff the air. Behind him a female caribou looks across the broad river, her head and antlers rising through the centre of the image. In the background, the river flows toward the horizon, bisected by an island; and further beyond rise foothills that give way to jagged mountains. The reverse is also engraved with the word "CANADA."

Packaging
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in custom maple wood box lined with flock and protected by a black sleeve.
