The sight of a magnificent mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus) foraging by the roadside or in a nearby meadow provides a memorable encounter for many Canadians. This fine silver collectable coin brings this experience to life in full colour. Named for its long ears that resemble those of a mule, the mule deer is the predominant deer species throughout western Canada and southern portions of the Yukon. In the winter, old-growth forests and shrubland provide shelter for groups of mule deer; in the summer, the deer often opt to move to higher elevations where they can forage for new growth.
All collectable coins have been previously owned. Conditions will vary.
