Special features:
•  EDGE LETTERING: All coins in your subscription feature edge lettering indicating the coin's metal weight.
•  Viewed together, the series showcases the variety of finishes used by Royal Canadian Mint engravers to bring life and energy to every image.
•  Receive a new white-tailed deer coin each month for four months, each coin priced at $99.95.
•  Your coins are GST/HST exempt and have a limited worldwide mintage of only 7,500.

Design:
The first coin in the subscription features a three-quarter profile portrait of a male white-tailed deer, and is designed to showcase the singular beauty of a mature male white-tailed deer at the height of its strength. This image renders in fine detail the 10-point antler rack, large ears, distinctive eyes and muzzle, and strong neck and back of its subject. The antlers, which will be shed soon after they have reached their peak growth for the year, bear tines that point sharply upward and bend slightly forward. The lighter colouration of its inner ear, eyes, nose, and lower jaw, along with the rippling muscles of its powerful neck and back, are portrayed in dimensional detail by Royal Canadian Mint engravers.

During the late-November mating season, mature male deer are at their most majestic—their bodies rounded and muscular in anticipation of the coming cold season, their fur thickened against the cold, and their broad necks and heads crowned by a massive rack of antlers. These antlers are a biological wonder. Composed of velvet-covered cartilage that hardens into bone, the antlers of Canada's white-tailed deerare among the fastest-growing mammal bones on Earth. Following the annual mating season, these bone structures, which are dead by the time they are used to assert dominance in the autumn, will fall off. The buck will grow a new set of antlers the following spring.

•  Antler growth is largely restricted to male deer (bucks). Antlers can grow more than a centimeter a day.
•  In their earliest growth stage, antlers are formed of living cartilage covered in velvety skin that feeds bone growth through a complex vascular system.
•  Antlers grow from the tips and growth is triggered by seasonal daylight cycles.
•  Each year, for about the first seven years of the buck's life, the antlers will grow larger than the previous year.
•  Antler size varies widely and is influenced by a broad range of factors from genetics to environment and food availability.

Packaging:
Your coins are encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a custom beauty box.

    I purchased this after seeing it at the post office. The engraving is exquisite and I just love the edge lettering too. I tend to focus on colour coins but I just love this. I am looking forward to the next one!

    They should give the option of a box, especially as pricey as it is. If you had a nice fall presentation type wood box, it would make this a big hit.

      I usually only collect coins with colour, holographic or other "wow" features. I saw this one at the post office and thought the engraving was just beautiful...I had to buy the subscription. The portrait is exquisitely engraved.....and I really like the edge lettering. The printed wrapper is nice too (I agree with the other reviewers I wish there were more like this! I buy from Perth and their wrappers are always this way). Great job RCM!

      These four coin series are beautiful and very easy to display. The Bison and Eagle were equally beautiful. The R C M has really done a beautiful job on this wildlife series keep them coming as I think they will stay very popular.

        I am an American amateur coin collector who has come to value the quality, uniqueness and striking beauty of coins minted from the Royal Canadian Mint. I was drawn to the Whitetail Deer subscription due to its affordability, low mintage and subject matter. I am an avid outdoorsman who appreciates fine whitetail deer art. I believe this subscription would make a fine gift for any whitetail hunter whether they collect coins or not. This coin is spectacular and I'm completely satisfied with my coin. I will continue to purchase RCM coins due to their extraordinary quality and value.

              With this series of coins, the outer sleeve will show a picture of the coin, which I feel that the RCM should do more often.

              As I have said in some of my reviews about collecting coins, that belong to a series, we should be offered a box or the packaging should reflect the coin that is held within the clam shell.

              I will be able to pull out this coin from my "sea of clam shells" because the RCM took the time to design an outer sleeve.

              Keep this type of packaging coming RCM.
