The latest design in the Animal Portrait Series from the Royal Canadian Mint is that of the boreal woodland caribou. A subspecies of reindeer living on the North American continent, the woodland caribou is one of three distinct subspecies of caribou living on the continent. Today, you have an opportunity to purchase the 2020 Canadian Woodland Caribou Reverse Proof 1/4 oz Gold Coin online from Provident Metals.
The boreal woodland caribou, as the name suggests, prefers to inhabit mature forests across the northern stretches of the continent. Most members of the species prefer lichen-rich forests and live in marshes, bogs, lakes, and river regions.
The obverse side of 2020 Canadian Woodland Caribou Reverse Proof 1/4 oz Gold Coins bears a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is depicted here in right-profile relief with no crown on her head. This design was created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt and is just the second monarch effigy for Canadian coinage ever created by a Canadian artist. Inscriptions include the Queens name and date mark.
On the reverse of 2020 Canadian Woodland Caribou Reverse Proof Gold Coins is a depiction of a woodland caribou. The member of the species featured here in right-profile relief has large antlers. Both male and female members of the species grow antlers, making the woodland caribou the only species of deer in the world in which the female also grows antlers. Inscriptions on this side include Canada 2020, 9999, and Fine Gold 1/4 oz Or Pur. There are also the initials of the designer DM below the caribous snout.
Boreal woodland caribou females grow antlers that are smaller than those of the male, but do not keep them forever. During pregnancy, the female sheds her antlers to preserve her life and that of her young calf against hunters seeking out prized male specimens for meat and the antler rack.
Your 2020 Canadian Woodland Caribou Reverse Proof 1/4 oz Gold Coin arrives with reverse proof visuals that include frosted background fields and mirrored design elements. Each coin ships in a protective flip, a mint tube, or a Monster Box of 800 coins.
