Mintage of only 1,000 coins!
This 99.99% fine silver coin has a face value of 250 Dollars with a diameter of 102.1 millimetres and a weight of 1,000 grams. The reverse image features a detail from Robert Bateman’s painting, The Moose Family. The original painting presents a bull moose leading a cow and young calf through a shallow, reed-lined wetland. This detail features the upraised head, neck, and multi-pronged antlers of the bull moose. The mighty animal’s striking features are captured in a gracefully turned profile that elegantly fills the borderless reverse side’s polished ground. In a Royal Canadian Mint first, Robert Bateman’s signature is engraved at the bottom right side of the image. Also features the embossed text “CANADA,” the dates “1962–2012” to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Canadian Wildlife Federation and the face value “250 DOLLARS.” The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. Coin is encapsulated and presented in a custom maple wood box lacquered in walnut coloured finish, and protected by a custom beauty box featuring Mr. Bateman’s work, The Moose Family.
