This very small (11 mm) gold coin featuring my illustration of a Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep is now available at the Royal Canadian Mint’s website. This design is the third in the series. The first was the snarling cougar that I designed a couple years ago, and the second is a lovely hummingbird.

Also available is the larger, more expensive platinum version shown below, though it is a very limited mintage. (Click here to see it at the Mint’s website). It’s much easier to see the details of the fur and horn texture here.
