Bison are powerful animals that once roamed freely across the North American continent for centuries. Native tribes and original settlers relied upon the bison for everything from food to clothing and shelter. The Royal Canadian Mint has released a brand new bison-themed design on the 2015 1.25 oz $8 Silver Canadian Bison coin that is now available in its original 20-coin tube packaging.

The Royal Canadian Mint has previously showcased the bison on silver bullion coins, but this series features a new design and updated security features that make this coin truly unique. Those interested in this 2015 1.25 oz $8 Silver Canadian Bison Coin can purchase these coins in their mint tubes containing 20 brilliant uncirculated coins. In keeping with Royal Canadian Mint standards, the obverse side of the coin uses the traditional imagery of Queen Elizabeth II that is found on all of the Royal Canadian Mint’s bullion coins.
On the reverse side of the 2015 1.25 oz $8 Silver Canadian Bison coin is the all new image of a bison. On the coin, a lone bison is running across an open plain that features low, rolling hills in the background. Engravings on this side include “Canada 2015” and the weight, purity, and metal content of the coin.
The obverse side boasts Susana Blunt’s right-profile depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s image is surrounded by engravings of “Elizabeth II” and the face value of the coin in Canadian dollars. Each coin in these tubes of 20 have radial lines around the rim on both sides. These expertly machined lines make counterfeiting them nearly impossible.
