The Canadian Horse is a breed that was chosen for life in the rugged terrain and harsh environment of Canada by the early settlers trying to tame this vast and unforgiving landscape. The Canadian Horse was primarily used early on for diving due to its strength, but its rugged physique also made the horse great for riding in a land with few roads and many obstacles.
Canadian Wild Horses proved themselves capable of surviving Canada’s harsh weather and terrain, earning the nickname “le petit cheval de fer” in the process. This translates to English as “the little iron horse.” The breed is known for its power, agility, finesse, strength, and natural balance.
On the obverse of 2019 1/4 oz Gold Canadian Wild Horse Reverse Proof Coins, you’ll find the image of Queen Elizabeth II. This right-profile portrait is the fourth-generation design to feature on Canadian coinage and was created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt. Ms. Blunt is just the second Canadian artist ever to design a monarch’s portrait of Canadian coins.
The reverse of 2019 Gold Canadian Wild Horse Reverse Proof Coins features the image of the Canadian Wild Horse. The horses originally resulted from the cross-breeding of Norman horses from France’s King Louis XIV and the Breton/Andalusian breed. Today, the Canadian Horse is the purest horse breed in North America and completely unrelated to any other breed on the continent.
These 2019 1/4 oz Gold Canadian Wild Horse Reverse Proof Coins are available to you in individual packaging, tubes, or boxes of 800. Reverse proof coins have strong, frosted background fields with design elements that exhibit clear, deeply-mirrored visuals.
