Why does this 1 oz. Silver 2021 Extraordinary High Relief Canadian Buffalo Proof coin deserve a place in your collection?
In 2020, the Royal Canadian Mint issued its first ever coin with an Extraordinary High Relief strike paired with a proof finish. That coin, depicting a bald eagle, featured a design which extended 5.5 mm above the coin’ surface. This 2021 dated release, which commemorates the American Buffalo, surpasses the eagle, boasting a design that reaches a staggering relief height of 6.10 mm! In comparison, that’s more than twenty times the height of George Washington on the standard U.S. quarter dollar coin.
- This 2021 Canadian Buffalo coin is struck from 1 Troy oz. of .9999 fine silver.
- The coin’s meticulously detailed design is enhanced by an amazing Extraordinary High Relief strike.
- The 36 mm diameter coin features an exquisite proof finish.
- The coin will ship with an Authenticity Certificate in its original Mint packaging.
- Total mintage of this numismatic masterpiece will not exceed 5,000 pieces.
Astoundingly Lifelike Buffalo Design
Obverse: Centered on the obverse is the likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, in an elegant right facing pose. The mirrored background is lightly etched with a random pattern of cascading wavy lines. Inscriptions include “ELIZABETH II,” “D.G. REGINA” and “25 DOLLARS.”
Reverse: Featured on the reverse is a gorgeously rendered, sculptural portrait of a Buffalo. Inscriptions are simply “CANADA” and “2021.” Weighing over a ton, an adult Buffalo is one of the world’s largest mammals, and is recognized as symbol for power, safety, prosperity, endurance and the sacredness of life.
