The Royal Canadian Mint has produced various bison-themed coins in the past but none have caught the eye of investors quite like these. This new coin is special for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, the design in use on this coin is brand new on the reverse side. Additionally, it is the first time the Royal Canadian Mint has produced a silver bullion coin in this weight (1 1/4 troy ounces). The 2015 1.25 oz $8 Silver Canadian Bison coins also have a brand new security feature to help combat counterfeiting.
On the reverse side of the 2015 1.25 oz $8 Silver Canadian Bison coins is the new imagery of the bison. A lone bison is seen galloping through the open fields of Canada, with a low hill visible in the background. Engravings on this side include “Canada 2015” and the weight, purity, and metal content of the coin.
Susana Blunt’s classic right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II is featured on the obverse, as is standard with all Canadian bullion coins. Her Majesty’s image is encircled by engravings of “Elizabeth II” and the face value of the coin in Canadian dollars. Each coin in this monster box of 400 has new radial lines that are expertly machined to prevent counterfeiting of the 2015 1.25 oz Silver Canadian Bison Coins.
The Royal Canadian Mint is a state-of-the-art minting facility with two separate locations in Canada, Winnipeg and Ottawa. The mint was founded by the British in 1908 to process gold and precious metals sourced from the Yukon Territories. Today they produce all of Canada’s circulating currency as well as medals, bullion, and collectible coins.
