This coin is a perfect addition to any collection and is ideal for those who enjoy wildlife or who have a connection to Canada.
As the 2014 1/10 oz Canadian Gold Bison Proof Coin pays homage to the bison of the great Canadian plains, it is unsurprising that the artist, Trevor Tennant, has put such an emphasis on the North American Bison. The attention to detail is immediately noted from the fur of the bison to the blades of grass which make up the land the bison stands upon. This is a highly realistic coin and one can easily see the contentment of the creature as it walks through the countryside. To the left of the bison is a profiled bison head facing outward and to the right is the year, “2014.” Above the bison is the word “CANADA” and below, “5 DOLLARS” is printed.
The opposite side of the 2014 1/10 oz Canadian Gold Bison Proof Coin features the profile of Queen Elizabeth II and commemorates the respect that the country still has for the British monarchy. The attention to detail is highly noticeable and from the pearls in her necklace to the curls of her hair, it is truly a work of art. The right of her face, the phrase “D.G. Regina” are inscribed. This is the shortened version of the phrase “Dei Gratia Reginia,” the Latin phrase meaning “Ordained Queen by God.” Her name, “ELIZABETH II” is inscribed to the left of the monarch’s profile.
The 2014 1/10 oz Canadian Gold Bison Proof Coin is the final coin of the “O Canada” series and is a must-have for any collector who has other coins from the series. This coin also makes an outstanding gift for those who are interested in diversifying their collections.
