The bison is the largest land animal in North America: a symbol of strength, and an important part of the history of the Prairies region of Canada. This fine silver collectable coin portrays the front-facing portrait of a wood bison (Bison bison athabascae), whose distinctive shoulder hump stands in contrast to the darker-coloured mane and the curved horns. The bison is standing still, its calm gaze fixed upon the intrusion in its otherwise natural environment.
