From start to finish, this EHR coin is designed to leave a lasting impression and its a fitting tribute to the titan of the Canadian prairies. The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins. On your coins reverse, Canadian artist Derek C. Wicks has created a striking three-quarter portrait of a bison that has a solemn expression as it gazes towards the right.
Its unique features the upturned horns, the muscled hump behind the shoulder and the textural variations of its fur are all accentuated by the extraordinary high relief, which allows for a greater depth of engraved details. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
The bisons thick, rugged coat provided the perfect starting point for creating an extraordinarily high relief coin. With its many textural and directional changes, not only was it a welcome challenge to re-create, but it made for a very inspirational end result. Coin designs are traditionally modelled in bas relief, but for this one, I got to model the bisons head in full 3D, right from the start. I worked with the Engineer and the Product Manager to determine the optimal viewing angle, one that plays up the relief height so that the bison practically pops off the coin.
Ultimately, we chose a three-quarter view that, coupled with extraordinarily high relief, best conveys the bisons enormous size while focusing in on its features. The bison is the largest and heaviest land animal in Canada. A male or bull stands tall at 2 metres high and can weigh more than a tonne! Its hump isnt composed of fat its all muscle, supported by vertebrae.
That hump comes in handy in the winter, when the bison uses its head (and hump) to push snow out of its way.
