Known to First Nation tribes of Canada as the wapiti, the elk is one of the largest deer species in the world and is found throughout the North American continent. In fact, it is one of North America and Eastern Asias largest land mammals.
On the reverse of the 2017 500 Gram Proof $125 Canadian Silver Elk Coin youll find the image of an elk dominating the foreground of the design. With a thick build and massive antlers, its head is raised toward the sky as it lets out its echoing bugle call.
Elk on both the North American and Asian continent are known to range from forests to the edge of forest habitats, largely feeding on grasses, plants, leaves, and bark. A prized source of food for First Nation tribes throughout Canadas history, the male elk have large antlers that are shed each year and often collected by those looking to turn the valuable antlers in for cash.
The obverse of all Canadian Silver Elk Coins includes the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty appears on all Canadian coinage, with this latest effigy coming from Canadian artist Susanna Blunt in 2003.
Founded in 1908 in the federal capital city of Ottawa, the Royal Canadian Mint is the official sovereign mint of Canada. Today it consists of a second facility in Winnipeg that was added to expand mint capacity in the late 20th century.
