2013 $20 Untamed Canada - Pronghorn Antelope (#2) Fine Silver (No Tax)

Every day, the dramatic tales of the untamed wilderness are played out across Canada's vast landscape-as they have been for untold millennia.

The reverse image by Canadian artist Tivadar Bote features a unique stylized image, inspired by woodblock design, of a Pronghorn set against symbolic elements of its Canadian habitat.

The Pronghorn, viewed in three-quarter profile, is presented in the foreground of the image, its namesake horns reaching majestically toward the top of the image, with its serene face and head set upon a muscular neck. In the background, the image of a circular sunburst replete with rays recalls the vast open skies of the Pronghorn's preferred habitat.

From the sunburst rise wheat motifs and rays of light. The circularity of this element echoes the circular field of the coin and hints at the cyclical nature of the Pronghorn's lifecycle.
