Bison have been previously featured on Royal Canadian Mint coins before, but this new silver bullion product is special for a different reason. The 2015 1.25 oz $8 Silver Canadian Bison Coin represents the first time the mint has produced a silver coin of this size. The image of the bison used on this coin is a brand new design created specifically for this series. New security features have been integrated into the design of this coin. Specifically, the use of radial lines on both sides makes it more difficult for counterfeits to reproduce false bison coins.
On the reverse side of the 2015 1.25 oz $8 Silver Canadian Bison Coin is the image of a lone bison galloping through a grassy plain. In the background, low, rolling hills are visible. Engravings on this side of the coin include “Canada 2015,” and the weight, purity, and metal content of the coin.
The obverse side of the coin features Susana Blunt’s traditional right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Engravings accompanying Her Majesty’s image include “Elizabeth II” and the face value of the coin in Canadian dollars.
The Royal Canadian Mint is recognized around the world as one of the most advanced, technologically savvy facilities in existence. It was first established in 1908 by the ruling British Empire to mint gold and other precious metals discovered in the Yukon Territories. Today, it is responsible for the production of commemorative and circulation currency for the government of Canada.
