2011 Canada 50-cent Wood Bison 1/25oz. Fine Gold Coin (TAX Exempt)

The Wood Bison once dominated the western plains. It was a critical source of food and materials for First Nations communities that virtually collapsed when over-hunting by Europeans decimated bison populations. Conservation efforts have begun to re-establish bison populations, but they remain far below their former million-mark.

Express your passion for the Canadian wilderness - treasures to cherish and preserve.

Celebrated First Nation's artist Corrine Hunt has brought her distinctive vision of traditional Kwakwaka'wakw and Tlingit forms to create these special-edition collectibles. Every design is visual poetry that gives the time-honoured traditions of conservation and respect a contemporary voice with powerful lines and well-honed economy in composition.

2011 is the International Year of Forests - a time to reflect on the significant role the wilderness plays in reducing global warming and preserving the earth's environmental balance.
