There are few animals in North America that are more respected than bison. These massive animals once had free range across the North American continent, and were a primary source of food, clothing, and shelter for native tribes and settlers across the United States and Canada. The Royal Canadian Mint now has a brand new 2015 1.25 oz $8 Silver Canadian Bison coin to honor these majestic creatures. When you buy this coin from Silver.com, you are purchasing an NGC-certified MS 70 coin from the early release range.

- Minted by the Royal Canadian Mint.
- Carries a $8 CAD face value backed by the Canadian government.
- Graded a perfect MS70 by the NGC.
- Part of the Early Release series.
- Ships in an NGC plastic slab.
Bison have been featured on previous Canadian coin series, but this particular coin features a new design and upgraded security features that make it truly special. The reverse image of a bison is all new for this 2015 1.25 oz $8 Silver Canadian coin, and radial lines have been machined onto both sides of the coin to inhibit counterfeiting of the coins.
Each of the coins from this particular lot is available with an MS 70 grade from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation. An MS70 grade is reserved for coins that are minted perfectly and feature attractive strikes, with no loss of luster or surface abrasions.
On the reverse side of the 2015 1.25 oz $8 Silver Canadian Bison Coin is the image of a lone creature. The bison can be seen galloping across the open plains, with low, rolling hills visible in the background. Engravings include “Canada 2015” and the weight, purity, and metal content of the coin. The obverse side includes Susana Blunt’s right-profile portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Her image is encircled by the engravings “Elizabeth II” and the face value, in Canadian dollars, of the coin.
