Third and final coin in stunning Majestic Wildlife series! Order today!

Mountain goats forage on vegetation on cliff faces, often above the tree line, even tackling grades of more than 60º to reach pockets of vegetation between the rocks. Their hooves are ingeniously designed so they can climb where other animals would simply slide off. Adult males and females both have horns and beards, and everyone wears a thick, woolly coat that can withstand extreme cold and wind—unique climbing gear for Canada’s one-of-a-kind mountaineer! This incredibly agile member of the antelope family spends 75% of its time on steep rocky ledges to stay out of reach of predators such as bears, wolves and cougars. Its habitat is so remote and extreme, little was known about this animal before 1900.

A must-have keepsake for wildlife enthusiasts and rock climbers! Order today!

Design:

A mountain goat looks out from perilous heights in this wildlife portrait by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc, its hooves solid on the steep rocky ledge. In the background, one of countless Canadian mountains rises above an alpine valley where a river flows. Selective colour brings added dimension to the alpine trees, rocky ledge and mountain goat in the foreground. Its signature black horns, short tail, shaggy coat, and burly build are unmistakeable in this exquisitely detailed design.

Did you know…
  • The mountain goat’s hooves have two flexible toes that can be squeezed together or spread apart to fit perfectly over a crack or piece of rock. The convex-shaped pad is slightly larger than the nail, and functions like a suction cup with a rough surface to deliver maximum traction on smooth rock and ice.
  • Mountain goats have black, slightly curved horns that grow 15-28 cm long. They live in an aggressive social structure, but don’t butt heads. Instead, they use their horns to poke, push and shove. Studies show that while bighorn sheep experience one conflict every two or three hours, mountain goats experience three to six confrontations—every hour!
  • When Capt. James Cook was given mountain goat hides by Tlingit traders in 1778, he thought they were from white bears. The goat’s fine, dense wool is covered by an outer layer of hollow hairs that can grow to 20 cm. They protect against -46ºC temperatures and winds of 161 km/h, but are shed in spring. Billies (males) shed first, and pregnant nannies (females) molt last.

Packaging:

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