2013 Canada $100 Bison Stampede ($100 for $100) Fine Silver (No Tax)

A dynamic image of one of Canada's most historic, majestic, and iconic land mammals in its natural environment exquisitely engraved on a stunning fine silver coin.

This fine silver coin is certified to be 99.99% pure silver with a diameter of 40 millimetres and a metal weight of 31.60 grams.

The reverse image by Canadian artist Claudio D'Angelo portrays three members of a stampeding bison herd racing across the prairies. Seen in profile from their left side, the three massive creatures illustrate the movement and momentum of the bison in full gallop, its massive chest and head held low beneath the hump of its shaggy back as its furred forelegs move together in opposition to its long slender back legs. The three large animals fly across a high-grassed prairie plain, each blade of grass, along with the shaggy fur of the animals, rendered in exquisite detail by Royal Canadian Mint engravers.

In the distant background, the prairie gives way to foothills that are backed by a jagged mountain whose base is ringed with conifers. Above the distant horizon, a massive cloud bank gathers in the silver sky. While the artistry of the design illustrates the beauty and power of the bison, the exceptional textural treatment illustrates the masterful technique by which the engravers have achieved depth and tone through engraving alone. The reverse is engraved with the word 'CANADA,' the date '2013,' and the face value of '100 DOLLARS.' The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
