The caribou (Rangifer tarandus) is a Canadian icon, celebrated since 1937 on Canada's 25-cent circulation coin, official animal of Newfoundland and Labrador, and shield-bearer of the Nunavut coat of arms. This fine silver collectable coin embodies the beauty and resilience of the caribou. The caribou teaches you the lessons of survival in this land: the benefits of slow, steady progress borne of tireless effort; the safety of the herd against predators large and small; and the intrinsic interconnection with the world you inhabit.
