Canada 2013 Wildlife In Motion $100 #1 Bison Buffalo Stampede Pure Silver For Sale

Canada 2013 Wildlife In Motion $100 #1 Bison Buffalo Stampede Pure Silver


Exciting and extremely desirable - an original animal work of art, struck in the purest silver in the world! Experience the call of the wild with that American wildlife icon, the buffalo or bison, with a mintage limit and high face value - what's not to love?!

In Stock and Ready for Immediate Shipment!


We have managed to acquire a limited quantity of this unique (and perhaps even revolutionary!)American Buffalo (Bison) pure silver coin! It's a true thrill to wildlife lovers when they catch a glimpse of the majestic buffalo in the wild! Two centuries ago, the speed and power of a vast stampeding herd of American Bison would churn up clouds of dust that roiled high into the sky, carried for miles across the Great Plains. To the Native Americans who hunted them, they provided an entire way of life. Today, though bison are greatly reduced in number, we can still see the deeply worn paths of their traditional migratory routes across the prairies. Enormous, powerful, invested with exceptional senses of smell and sound, today’s bison faces new threats, including habitat destruction and new diseases. These noble beasts will doubtless face these dangers as they have others through the millennia: by relying on endurance, determination, and the protective strength of the herd. Following hot on the heels of the ongoing Canadian $20 Silver Commemorative Program , the Buffalo Stampede $100 1 Troy Ounce Pure Silver Reverse Proof is the very first in the new Wildlife in Motion Series! These magnificent animal coins offer coin collectors of all means the opportunity to acquire dynamic, striking wildlife designs, all minted in the purest silver on the planet! With its limited mintage and very high face value, a fast sell out at the Mint is anticipated!

The Mint has imposed a limit of 1 per collector (go ahead, ask yourself why)! We do not currently have a limit - don't delay - get yours today! A Dynamic, Striking Design
The vignette by Canadian artist Claudio D’Angelo portrays three members of a stampeding buffalo herd racing across the Great Plains. Seen in profile from their left side, these massive creatures illustrate the movement and momentum of the bison in full gallop, its massive chest and head held low beneath the hump of its shaggy back as its furred forelegs move together in opposition to its long slender back legs. The three large animals fly across a high-grassed prairie, each blade of grass, along with the shaggy fur of the animals, rendered in exquisite detail by Royal Canadian Mint engravers. In the distant background, the prairie gives way to foothills of the towering Rocky Mountains, whose bases are ringed with conifers. Above the distant horizon, a massive cloud bank gathers in the silver sky. While the artistry of the design illustrates the beauty and power of the bison, the exceptional textural treatment illustrates the masterful technique by which the engravers have achieved depth and tone through chasing alone. The Wood Bison
The wood bison is nearly uniquely Canadian: in its natural state, it only occurs in Canada and the state of Alaska. It is also the largest land mammal in North America, often reaching six feet (2 meters) in height and weighing over 2,000 pounds (900 kilograms), mirroring our vast land’s massiveness and power.

Despite their great size and abundance (its population was once over 170,000) these great foragers were thought extinct by the dawn of the twentieth century. As with other bison, the Wood Bison's population was devastated by hunting and other factors. By the early 1900s, they were regarded as extremely rare or perhaps nearly extinct. However, a herd of about 200 was discovered in Alberta, Canada in 1957. This herd has since recovered to a total population of approximately 2,500, largely as a result of conservation efforts by Canadian government agencies.

Long an example of humanity’s destructive power, the bison has, for far longer, been an American icon, symbol of the West, and a core component of the pantheon of Canadiana. Through its successful rehabilitation, the story of the wood bison may now also become one of Canadian conservation’s success stories. Canada $20 Silver Commemorative Program

Master of the Prairie Wind: The American Bison

Two centuries ago, the speed and power of a vast stampeding herd of American Bison would churn up clouds of dust that roiled high into the sky, carried for kilometres on the prairie winds. Today, though bisons are greatly reduced in number, we can still see the deeply worn paths of their traditional migratory routes across the Canadian prairies. Enormous, powerful, invested with exceptional senses of smell and sound, today’s bison faces new threats in the Canadian landscape, including habitat destruction, and new diseases—but will doubtless face these dangers as they have others through the millennia: by relying on endurance, determination, and the protective strength of the herd.
