Wood Bison on Royal Canadian Mint Silver Bullion Coin
Silver bullion coin from the Royal Canadian Mint, featuring my illustration of a wood bison
My illustration of a wood bison ended up on the final in a series of six silver bullion wildlife coins. The Royal Canadian Mint released this one last month; it is available globally from bullion distributors. (Locally, you can find it at Colonial Acres Coins). The coin is 38 mm in diameter.
Wood bison (Bison bison athabascae) are one of two subspecies of American bison – the other subspecies being the plains bison. This wood bison is shown galloping through snow.
