One of the more unique silver coins offered by the Royal Canadian Mint in the last decade was the Canadian Bison Silver Coin. This series was noted for both its changing reverse depictions of the American bison and its unique weight. This series offers a 1.25 oz silver blank with .9999 pure silver content. Provident Metals now has $8 Canadian Bison 1.25 oz Silver Coins to you for purchase online.

We are not able to guarantee a specific date, design, or condition in advance. Provident Metals fulfills your order only after your payment has cleared. As such, you may receive coins with the same conditions, dates, and designs when you buy more than one.


The obverse of the Canadian Bison 1.25 oz Silver Coin comes with a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown here in right-profile relief in the fourth-generation depiction of the Queen from Susanna Blunt. This image is the first portrait of the Queen on Canadian coins to lack a crown on the monarchs head. Inscriptions include ELIZABETH II and 8 DOLLARS.


On the reverse side of $8 Canadian Bison Silver Coins, you will find images of the American bison. The bison is the largest land mammal in North America and plays a vital role in the culture and religion of indigenous tribes across the United States and Canada. The designs on this side of the coin changed with each of the five date marks in the series. Inscriptions on this side of the coin read CANADA, 9999, FINE SILVER, 1 1/4 OZ, and ARGENT PUR, along with different date marks.


The Canadian Bison Silver Coins were issued by the Royal Canadian Mint for five years, running from 2015 to 2019. Each date mark had its own depiction of the American bison. There are two subspecies of the American bison that include the Plains bison, more common in the United States, and the Wood bison, more common in Canada.
