The year 2015 marks the 350th anniversary of the introduction of the Canadian horse. Robust, resilient, and good natured, the petit cheval de fer—the "little iron horse," as it became known in its native Quebec—has survived near extinction to emerge as one of Canada's official national symbols. The Royal Canadian Mint proudly celebrates the anniversary of its introduction with a unique half-kilogram coin of 99.99% pure silver.
An ideal coin for someone with a passion for horses. Previous 1/2 kilogram silver coin sold out, so order yours today before they're all gone!

Special features:
•   UNIQUE: This proof-quality 99.99% pure silver coin is only the second coin ever minted on the Royal Canadian Mint's unique new 85-millimetre blank.
•   The coin's exceptionally large diameter allows for an intricately detailed reverse design to highlight the celebrated beauty of the Canadian horse.
•   Celebrate the emergence of the stunning breed that helped build the nation of Canada and survived near-extinction to emerge as one of Canada's proud national symbols.
•   Some historians contend that it was the Canadian horse that gave the North a cavalry advantage in the American Civil War.
•   A very low mintage of only 1,000 and highly desirable subject matter mean that this coin is sure to be sought after by collectors.
•   This beautiful coin is packaged in a sleek black beauty box within a fine wooden case.
•   Crafted in 99.99% pure silver, your coin is also GST/HST exempt.

Coin design:
Designed by Canadian artist Michelle Grant, your coin features a portrait of three Canadian horses bounding through a cascade of maple leaves. In the centre of the image, a stallion leaps toward the viewer across a grassy field. A cascade of maple leaves spin clockwise, like the hands of time, around him. Two other Canadian horses race toward him in the left background. The leaves are engraved in multiple textures to underscore the diverse history of the Little Iron Horse that is so intertwined with the development of Canada.

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded wooden box with a standard beauty box.

Put this lovely design on circulating coins too! Would be great for the quarter, loonie or toonie.

As the artist who designed this piece, I was somewhat apprehensive opening the box, wondering how well the engraver had interpreted my drawing. Did he capture the muscling, bone and flow of the horse? Needless to say, I was totally blown away when I tore open those two boxes and saw that gorgeous coin! My daughter and I were amazed at, not only the sheer mass of the coin, but also the detail and subtlety of the engraving! The engraver is supremely talented! Thank you so much! With the incredible skill of the engraver, and mutual collaboration with the Mint, they truly out did themselves on this one!

Wonderful Coin

I love to see how people complain about the cost of these large coins, seriously if you want silver at cost go buy some directly from the source these are not ment to be presious metal investments. These are works of art it costs money and man hours to make these and not only that but you do pay for the limited mintage, Only 1,000 coins... Seriously there are more then 34,000,000 people in canada alone and there are lots of numismatists out there... Not many people will get to own this coin. To end this "Review" this coin would be a great addition to any Numismatists collection.
