The 1.25 oz $8 Canadian Silver Bison Coin is a remarkable piece of precious metal artistry, introduced by the Royal Canadian Mint in 2015. This coin, which is the first-ever 1.25 Troy oz coin from the Mint, is a testament to Canada’s rich wildlife and the country’s commitment to preserving its natural heritage. Each year, a new design is released, making it a sought-after collectible and a valuable addition to any investment portfolio. The coin’s unique selling proposition lies in its .9999 pure silver content, its annually changing design, and its backing by the Canadian government.


Key features of the product include:

  • Contains 1.25 Troy oz of .9999 pure silver.
  • Bears a face value of $8 (CAD) backed by the federal government of Canada.
  • Features a new bison design each year.
  • Dates and designs may vary from shown. Variety is not guaranteed.
  • The obverse side includes the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
  • The coin comes with a year of issue mark dating from 2015 to current year.
  • The coin features micro-laser engraved radial lines and a maple leaf privy, visible only under intense magnification.


The Canadian Silver Bison coin carries a rich historical background and symbolism. The bison, a symbol of strength and unity, is a significant part of Canada’s natural heritage. The coin’s design changes each year, capturing the bison in different settings and poses, reflecting the animal’s versatility and adaptability. This unique aspect of the coin ties in with its unique selling proposition, offering collectors and investors a piece of art that is both valuable and meaningful.


The obverse side of the coin features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Susanna Blunt. This side also includes engravings that read “Elizabeth II” and the face value of the coin as “8 Dollars.” The micro-laser engraved radial lines and maple leaf, added to the Maple Leaf bullion program in 2014, are now available on the Canadian Silver Bison coin, adding to its uniqueness and security.


The reverse side of the coin features a new bison design each year. For instance, the 2015 release depicts a North American bison running across the open plains of Canada, while the 2016 design shows a bison standing at the water’s edge, drinking from a stream. The final two issues in 2018 and 2019 shared a reverse design capturing the bison’s head in right-profile relief. These designs not only showcase the bison in its natural habitat but also highlight the coin’s unique selling proposition of changing designs each year.


With its annually changing bison design, the 1.25 oz $8 Canadian Silver Bison Coin is a dynamic fusion of art and investment. Its .9999 pure silver content and government backing ensure tangible value, while its depiction of Canada’s iconic wildlife offers a touch of natural majesty. This coin is a silver canvas that captures the spirit of Canada, making it a standout in the realm of precious metal products.
