The Royal Canadian Mint is one of the most well-known mints in the world due to its production of beautiful gold and silver coins. The Big Horn Sheep coin is another new design from the RCM that is available in unique sizes in both gold and silver. Today, you can purchase 2017 Reverse Proof Canadian Big Horn Sheep 1/4 oz Gold Coins from Provident Metals.
These coins have a brilliant reverse proof striking. This means that they look different than standard proof coins. Reverse proof coins have a deeply-mirrored finish on the design elements, while the background has a frosted matte finish.
On the obverse of these coins, you will see the right-profile image of Queen Elizabeth II. This image was created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt for use on Canadian coinage. This is the latest image of Her Majesty to be used on Canadian coins. Queen Elizabeth II has been on the obverse of Canadian coins since she took the throne in 1952.
The reverse image is of a male bighorn sheep. He looks off into the distance with his curled horns, which are a status symbol for bighorn sheep. Engravings on this side of the coin include the nation and year of issue, weight, and purity of the coin, and a mintmark.
The Royal Canadian Mint was founded in 1908 as the official sovereign mint of the nation. Originally, the RCM refined gold and silver from the Yukon Territories. In the 1970s, the Ottawa facility was joined by the Winnipeg facility to create the RCM system in the 1980s.
