2020 Canadian $20 Black and Gold: The Canadian Horse - 1 oz Fine Silver Gold-plated Coin

For thousands of years, horses have been our partners in transforming the world. Canada’s own national horse, the Canadian horse, is a living connection to our nation’s past and the embodiment of our spirit today: strong, hardy and even-tempered. This gold- and black rhodium-plated coin celebrates the human-horse relationship while bringing awareness to an emblem’s near extinction status. The circular, yin yang-like design reflects on the breed’s near-extinction and comeback; it also speaks to the many ways horses support our wellbeing. It is a powerful representation of a timeless bond between our species—two opposing yet complimentary forces that have moved forward as one.

Gold and black rhodium plating colours this horse-themed tribute coin! Order today!


A STUNNING GOLD- AND BLACK RHODIUM-PLATED COIN! The magnificent Canadian horse is brought to life on a stunning gold- and black rhodium-plated coin. This heritage breed has twice faced extinction but is mounting a comeback, thanks to the efforts of passionate breeders and enthusiasts.
DYNAMIC DESIGN! Like a yin yang symbol, black rhodium and gold plating divide the design into two opposing but complementary portions. Each part flows into the other to represent dynamic movement, balance and harmony. It is a beautiful statement about a historic bond that still supports our wellbeing.
A CANADIAN CELEBRATION! Any horse enthusiast will appreciate the theme and the design. This coin will have extra meaning for Canadians and fans of the Canadian horse, an official symbol of Canada since 2002.
LATEST BLACK RHODIUM COIN! Building on the popularity of previous coins (including our Nocturnal by Nature series) this is the latest Canadian coin to feature black rhodium plating. The matte gunmetal finish adds a dramatic contrast, especially next to the rich gold plating—a powerful statement on the Canadian horse’s near-extinction and comeback.
THREE DIFFERENT ALLOYS! Beneath the gold and black rhodium plating, your coin has a 99.99% pure silver core.
LOW MINTAGE! Limited to 3,500 coins worldwide.


Inspired by the yin yang symbol, the circular reverse design by Claude Thivierge features two side profiles of the Canadian horse (Equus ferus caballus)—one plated with gold, the other with black rhodium. The two opposites interact to form a single dynamic image that celebrates the human-horse relationship and reflects on the heritage breed’s near extinction status. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.


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