Off the coast of Nova Scotia, southeast of Halifax, lies Sable Island. There, horses are the only terrestrial mammals and share their habitat with seabirds and seals.

This Sable Island Horse and Foal set includes a beautifully designed $5 royal Canadian coin and 2 stamps that exudes superb craftsmanship and are presented in an elegant wooden case.

2006 Sable Island Horse & Foal $5 Coin & Stamp Set issued by the Royal Canadian Mint (No Tax)

Issued jointly by the Royal Canadian Mint and Canada Post.

The Sable Island horse is a small horse, often pony sized, that lives on Sable Island, off the coast of Nova Scotia. These horses are protected by the Canadian government since 1960 to keep them in their feral state. In 2008, the horses were declared the official horse of Nova Scotia, and in 2011 the island was declared the Sable Island National Park Reserve.
