Your coin features a white-tailed doe and her two young fawns in their summer habitat. In this evocative scene, the doe walks behind her two knock-kneed and spotted offspring through a grassy clearing backed by young boreal forest; the deer's preferred warm-weather habitat. In the lower left centre of the image, one young fawn glances to the left, its long ears extended back behind its head as it listens to its mother behind it. Viewed from the front with its ungainly little body in a graceful curve, the fawn's youthful spots are clearly displayed, along with its long slender legs. Its sibling walks beside it, on the right side of the image, looking toward the right. Its front left leg is raised as it takes an uncertain step forward. Like its brother or sister, it keeps at least one ear trained on its mother at all times. Behind the fawns, the large doe walks with her head bowed toward her offspring, her slim but muscular body presented in dimensional detail by Royal Canadian Mint engravers. Each blade of grass below them, each narrow tree trunk in the background, the gentle slope of a distant hillside in the forest: all are engraved with the finest care to bring out the full beauty of the scene.
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a custom beauty box.
