Designed by Canadian artist Claudio D’Angelo and presents a full-body profile portrait of a moose in its natural habitat. Despite its seeming ungainliness, here we see the moose moving with grace through its environment. Viewed from its left side, the tall creature is presented to stunning effect, its massive rack of antlers raised proudly as it walks along the shoreline of a northern waterway. Its large round snout, dangling dewlap, powerful neck and shoulders, and sleek musculature are evoked in dimensional detail by Royal Canadian Mint engravers.
Three of its tall legs are partially submerged in the water below, its right hind leg raised above the water line as the moose steps forward. The water splashes gently before its quiet step. Water lilies line the foreground, while behind the moose we see a rocky, bush-lined shore giving way to a distant coniferous forest.
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a custom beauty box & certicicate of authenticity.
