For many, Saskatchewan evokes images of endless fields of wheat and canola beneath a big Prairie sky. In truth, the landscape is much more varied—from tundra to forests to rolling grasslands, which are home to iconic species such as the endangered swift fox. Through rich colour over engraving, the tenth coin in this series highlights the diversity of life in Saskatchewan, which has greatly contributed to Canada's rich natural legacy.

Design:
Based on a photograph captured by Canadian photographer John E. Marriott, the reverse features vibrant colour over the detailed engraved image of swift fox in the open prairie landscape. There, amid the mixed-grass vegetation that dots the landscape near Saskatchewan's Grasslands National Park of Canada, a pup faces the viewer as it attempts to climb onto its mother's back. The young fox's paws are crossed over, adding to its air of innocence; meanwhile, the mother stares out from the coin's surface towards the viewer—this allows for a close view of the facial features and the patterned colouring of the fox's fur, along with a glimpse of this prairie resident's famously bushy tail. The reverse also features the engraved word "CANADA" and the dates "1867-2017" to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Confederation.

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
