Officially known as the boreal woodland caribou, if you saw this species in the wild you would first think of it as the reindeer. Canadas woodland caribou species is a subspecies of the broader reindeer and is the largest subspecies of caribou. The woodland caribou now features in the Animal Portrait Series from the Royal Canadian Mint. Right now, you can get the 2020 Canadian Woodland Caribou Reverse Proof 3/4 oz Silver Coin online from Provident Metals.
Historically, the boreal woodland caribou in North America had a range that covered more than half of present-day Canada from the border with Alaska in the west to Newfoundland and Labrador. The boreal woodland caribou once resided in the US across New England, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan, with extremely small populations left in Idaho and Washington.
Queen Elizabeth II is depicted on the obverse side of the 2020 Canadian Woodland Caribou Reverse Proof 3/4 oz Silver Coins. This is the fourth-generation design used during her reign and was created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt. Ms. Blunt is just the second Canadian artist to create a monarch effigy for Canadian coins and this is the first design since the reign of Elizabeth IIs father, King George VI, to depict a monarch without a crown.
The boreal woodland caribou is depicted in right-profile relief on the reverse of 2020 Canadian Woodland Caribou 3/4 oz Silver Coins. The caribou is featured with large antlers. Both female and male members of the species have antlers. The woodland caribou is the only species of deer in which the female has antlers. In a unique twist, females shed their antlers during pregnancy, protecting them from hunters targeting males for the antlers and meat.
The 2020 Canadian Woodland Caribou Silver Coins are the fourth design issued in the Royal Canadian Mints Animal Portrait Series. The design is available on these 3/4 oz silver coins and a 1/4 oz gold coin, both of which are reverse proofs.
