Antlers crown its regal form, making the caribou (Rangifer tarandus) appear like the monarch of the Canadian wilderness on this fine silver coin. The colourful ode to a Canadian icon is a notable first: the first coin in our limited Canadian Mosaics series, and the first to feature an innovative colour technology that gives it the look and feel of a stained glass mosaic.

Special Features:
-Classic canadiana, re-imagened: this is the first in a three-coin series that puts a new spin on traditional wildlife portraits, with each canadian icon re-interpreted as mosaic art.
-First-time use of new technology: introducing colour mosaic! our latest colour innovation is paired with fine engraving in order to mimic the multi-coloured appearance of stained glass mosaic- one that fits in the palm of your hand!
-Outstanding attention to detail: complex engraving divides the larger image into segments that resemble pieces of coloured glass, all the while meticulously re-creating the caribou’s familiar features.
-Like filtered light: to achieve the look of light filtering through coloured glass, each colour on the reverse has a varying degree of translucence-from dark colours to glassy hues.

Maroon clamshell with black beauty box.
