2013 $10 O Canada Royal Canadian Mounted Police (#3) (No Tax)

The third coin in the Royal Canadian Mint's exciting new O Canada series focusing on iconic Canadian images, this beautiful coin celebrates the rich history of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

This 10-Dollar coin is certified to be 99.99% pure silver with a diameter of 34 millimetres and a metal weight of 15.87 grams. The reverse design by Canadian artist Janet Griffin-Scott features a portrait of a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer on horseback.

The Mountie fills the central field, rider and horse facing the viewer. The Red Serge regalia-the RCMP's formal attire-is presented in exceptional detail. The central garment is the military-style tunic with low collar, brass buttons, a single left breast pocket and one of the two lower front pockets visible in the image.

The officer's Sam Browne belt and white lanyard are visible along with various badges and decorations on her upper right sleeve and lapel. Her broad-brimmed Stetson hat is worn low over the eyes to block out the sun. On her legs she wears the Mounties' traditional riding breeches with their distinctive yellow side stripe. Her feet, shod with spurred riding boots, sit firmly in the stirrups as he masterfully controls his muscular mount whose right flank and hindquarters are visible, along with the special 'MP' monogrammed 'numnah' or saddle blanket.

In the lower third of the background we see the stylized outline of the RCMP's original territory: the Canadian prairies. A large Canadian flag flows across the central and upper background of the image, seeming to flutter in the prairie winds. Framing the reverse image is a polished outer band engraved with the word 'CANADA,' the date '2013,' and the face value of '10 DOLLARS,' as well as a small stylized Mountie symbol. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
