Shipping calculated at checkout.

The sight of a magnificent mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus) foraging by the roadside or in a nearby meadow provides a memorable encounter for any nature and animal lover. Named for its long ears that resemble those of a mule, the mule deer is a creature of great beauty and majestic stature. With this breathtaking silver coin, the Royal Canadian Mint celebrates a remarkable animal whose presence only adds to the remarkable beauty found in Canada’s great outdoors.

The predominant deer species throughout western Canada and southern portions of the Yukon, the mule deer roams the mountains, forests and grasslands in search of the grasses, herbs, foliage, mushrooms and lichen that make up its plant-based diet. 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.

A must-have addition for any nature or animal lover in your family!

About the Design:
The reverse image by Canadian artist Trevor Tennant recreates the breathtaking colours of an autumn morning in one of western Canada’s many forests. Here, a male and female mule deer have made their way to lower elevations where they have entered a foothills meadow to forage. The early morning light creates a blue cast on the misty scenery, softening the vibrant autumn colours of the surrounding foliage. In the foreground, the buck stands tall and attentive to any sound, turning its head to the left, while a doe follows behind in the background; with the annual rutting season soon approaching, this male’s swollen neck and large rack already contribute to its imposing stature, making him the dominant male within his territory. Adding a beautiful overlay of colour to the engraved design allows the viewer to glimpse the mule deer’s distinctive characteristics, from the dark tan-coloured fur with white patches on its throat and face, to the long black-rimmed ears and the buck’s forked antlers.
