The bugling call of the elk (or wapiti) is a telltale sign of fall in the western Canadian wilderness. During the rut, the male’s high-pitched bellows seem to resonate across the landscape, filling the crisp autumn air. The bull’s loudest vocalizations make his presence known—a distinctive call of the wild that serves as a show of strength and vitality among this species, beautifully captured on this stunning fine silver coin.

ZODIAC SERIES: GEMINI – 159159The reverse design by Canadian artist Simon Ng offers an artistic tribute to Dragon Boat Festival through the skilful fusion of ancient symbolism, traditional art elements and modern minting techniques. The lower portion of the coin is dominated by foam-tipped waves—an auspicious pattern that also adds a sense of motion to the design. In fact, curved lines are present throughout this water-themed design, including the dragon’s mane that evokes the sensation of wind and movement. Engraved in ultra-high relief for added depth and dimension, the serpentine spirit emerges from the water in a way that mimics the shape of a dragon boat, with its neck curved like a boat’s gunwale. The dragon’s features are resplendent in colourful hues of red, gold, green and blue, culminating in the blue pearl held tight in its jaw as a symbol of wisdom, and the active yang aspect of qi—the life force that surrounds us. The reverse includes the engraved year “2017”, the word “CANADA” and the face value, “25 DOLLARS”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.$42.35 Add to cart
