The arresting reverse design presents a Canadian cowboy on horseback surveying the land west of Okotoks, Alberta—in the Rocky Mountain foothills south of Calgary. Standing on a grassy hillside in the left foreground, the cowboy and his mount are viewed in profile from their right sides. The cowboy wears the characteristic cowboy hat and fringed suede breeches of his profession and sits high in the saddle. In the middle distance behind him and on the right of the image roam a few members of the herd of cattle he is carefully watching grazing on a flat, grassy plain. Far off in the distance, looking westward, we see rolling foothills leading to the sharp, snowy peaks of the Canadian Rockies.
The coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a custom beauty box & certicicate of authenticity.
