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.

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.
