2014 $5 O Canada - Bison 1/10th oz Pure Gold (TAX Exempt)

The fourth gold coin in the Royal Canadian Mint's exciting 2014 O Canada series focusing on iconic Canadian images, this coin features one of Canada's most potent wildlife symbols: the ancient and powerful bison.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Trevor Tennant presents a full-body profile portrait of a bison in its natural habitat. Viewed from its right side with its head and hindquarters arched toward the viewer, a massive North American bison bull stands with one hind leg raised in mid-stride. Its shaggy beard, blunt nose, small eye, and upturned horns are presented to stunning effect through the masterful use of varied finishes and engraving. The powerfully muscled, hunched back and fur-lined forelimbs give way to a low sloped hind section ending in a short fringed tail. On the bison's abdomen we see scars from ancient battles with other bulls and perhaps predators like wolves. The dust seems to rise from beneath the bulky mass of the plains giant as its feet stir the scraggly open grassland.
