A must-have addition for any nature or animal lover in your family! Order today!

The sight of a magnificent mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus) foraging by the roadside or in a nearby meadow provides a memorable encounter for any nature and animal lover. Named for its long ears that resemble those of a mule, the mule deer is a creature of great beauty and majestic stature. With this breathtaking silver coin, the Royal Canadian Mint celebrates a remarkable animal whose presence only adds to the remarkable beauty found in Canada’s great outdoors.

The predominant deer species throughout western Canada and southern portions of the Yukon, the mule deer roams the mountains, forests and grasslands in search of the grasses, herbs, foliage, mushrooms and lichen that make up its plant-based diet. In the winter, old-growth forests and shrubland provide shelter for groups of mule deer; in the summer, the deer often opt to move to higher elevations where they can forage for new growth.

A must-have addition for any nature or animal lover in your family! Order today!

Special features:
•  A breathtaking mix of traditional engraving, stunning high-definition colour, frosted elements and an immaculate proof finish.
•  By using a rich colour over the engraved surface, the mule deer and their surroundings are brought to life with added depth and definition in an already stunning design.
•  Beautifully designed by Canadian artist Trevor Tennant, this Canadian wildlife-inspired coin is a must-have addition for any nature or animal lover in your family.
•  Your coin is GST/HST exempt.

About the Design:
The reverse image by Canadian artist Trevor Tennant recreates the breathtaking colours of an autumn morning in one of western Canada’s many forests. Here, a male and female mule deer have made their way to lower elevations where they have entered a foothills meadow to forage. The early morning light creates a blue cast on the misty scenery, softening the vibrant autumn colours of the surrounding foliage. In the foreground, the buck stands tall and attentive to any sound, turning its head to the left, while a doe follows behind in the background; with the annual rutting season soon approaching, this male’s swollen neck and large rack already contribute to its imposing stature, making him the dominant male within his territory. Adding a beautiful overlay of colour to the engraved design allows the viewer to glimpse the mule deer’s distinctive characteristics, from the dark tan-coloured fur with white patches on its throat and face, to the long black-rimmed ears and the buck’s forked antlers.

Did you know…
•  The mule deer measures almost a metre high at the shoulder.
•  In its prime, an adult male (or buck) may weigh up to 180 kilograms, while a female (doe) weighs between 50 and 75 kilograms.
•  The mule deer has been nicknamed “jumper” for its stiff-legged stride and its jumping reaction when alarmed.
•  It is an excellent swimmer—on occasion, a doe will swim to islands to give birth far from known predators, while others have been known to swim between islands that are up to 25 kilometres apart!
•  Mule deer have better night vision than humans, but we have better daytime and colour vision. We lose again when it comes to our sense of smell: the mule deer’s sense of smell may be up to 1,000 times stronger than ours!
•  Measuring 2/3 the length of their head, those large ears give the mule deer acute hearing; they are very sensitive to sounds, yet they rely more on their sense of smell.
•  The mule deer’s tan-coloured coat darkens through the seasons, becoming a grizzled brown by the winter.
•  Most does will give birth every year after their second year; twin fawns are the norm, or occasionally triplets!
•  The Mule deer sheds its antlers every year between January and March; they regrow April through August—in time for the rutting season in November!

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a graphic beauty box.

    This is a coin that is hard "not to buy."Coin is very attractive and the colours are soft and peaceful. Proportion of these deer with their large ears is correct making it realistic. These iconic coins will hold their value or increase. Collectors will want to keep this beauty.

        This coin has beautiful art work. It would be even nicer if the coin were a bit larger to see the details of the picture more clearly.

                  I must admit that I enjoy coins without all the coloring. However, I will not let my personal preferences bias the outstanding craftsmanship of this coin. It is a well struck coin with superior rims and edges, and the silver/color transition areas along the surface area look outstanding. Unlike many of the earlier coins that look as if a sticker was affixed to the coin. All-in-all a great "colored" coin that will be a great investment and coin to display!
