This particular design showcases the Big Horn Sheep, one of nature’s most sure-footed creatures, in a unique size and precious metal composition. The coin’s reverse proof striking, which contrasts deeply-mirrored designs with a frosted matte background, adds to its allure, making it a must-have for collectors and investors alike.


Key Features:

  • Contains ¼ Troy oz of .9999 pure gold.
  • Features a reverse proof striking for enhanced visual appeal.
  • Bears a face value of $10 (CAD) backed by the federal government of Canada.

  • Artfully designed by Denis Mayer.


The bighorn sheep, renowned for its agility and balance, is often associated with the rugged terrains of British Columbia and Alberta. Its split hoof design enables it to navigate some of the world’s most challenging terrains. Beyond its mountainous habitats, these creatures can also be found in diverse Canadian landscapes, from grasslands and foothills to forests. The sheep’s distinctive curled horns, prominently featured in the coin’s design, are not just a physical trait but also a symbol of status within its species.


The obverse side of the coin features a right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This depiction, crafted in 2003 by Susanna Blunt, is the latest representation of the British monarch. Queen Elizabeth II has graced the obverse of Canadian coinage since her ascension to the throne in 1952.


The reverse side captivates with a detailed image of a male bighorn sheep gazing into the distance. Its iconic curled horns, a symbol of its status within the species, are prominently displayed. The design, a masterpiece by Denis Mayer, captures the essence of this majestic creature in its natural habitat.


With its pure gold composition and reverse proof striking, the 2017 ¼ oz Canadian Gold Big Horn Sheep Coin stands as a testament to unparalleled craftsmanship. Every detail, from the majestic bighorn sheep to the regal portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, tells a story of Canadian heritage and artistry. Dive into a world where nature’s grandeur meets human ingenuity, and own a piece that’s as rare as it is radiant.
