INNOVATIVE “FROZEN-IN-ICE” DESIGN! Order today!

For millennia, herds of enormous woolly mammoth roamed the frozen landscapes of North America. Covered in insulating moisture-resistant hair that could measure up to a metre in length, adult mammoths weighed up to 8,000 kilograms and grew to more than three metres in height. They used their massive tusks to fend off predators and to dig in the snow and gather food. Though their key predators were the various large cats and wolves that populated the continent—and even then, only when the mammoth were young enough to fell—human hunters proved perhaps the deadliest of all for the mammoth and are believed to have eradicated them in a number of regions. The last mammoth population, on Russia’s Wrangel Island in the Arctic Ocean, died out around 2000 BC.

Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Glen Loates, your coin portrays a snowy Ice Age landscape with a herd of mammoth traversing a frozen plain. The image centres on a single mammoth who faces the viewer, its massive tusks rising high into the sky. The image is overlain with a frosted “ice” like dome. The portion of the portrait under the ice is coloured, while the remainder of the image is struck-only. The reverse includes the text “CANADA” and the date “2018.” The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt, as well as the coin value of “20 DOLLARS.”

Did you know…
  • The mammoth thrived throughout the Pleistocene Era, a period of successive glaciations throughout the Northern Hemisphere that featured a significant drop in global temperatures.
  • Mammoths are one of the most common and well-preserved species uncovered from the Ice Age, making them one of the best known mammals of the Pleistocene.
  • Mammoths are believed to have lived, on average, between 60 and 80 years.
  • Ever wonder why mammoths looks so similar to, yet different from, elephants? The mammoth’s adaptations for cold environments—and the elephant’s adaptations for heat—make the two surprisingly different. Besides their shaggy fur and mouth specially structured for grazing on tough grasses, the mammoth’s ears were significantly smaller than those of the elephant, whose large ears are an important thermoregulator.

Packaging:

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