For the first time ever, the Royal Canadian Mint has used their Extraordinary High Relief (EHR) striking technology in the creation of a silver coin! This incredible technology allows the relief on one side of the coin to far exceed the typical realms of relief – or even ultra-high relief. Coins struck with this technology boast a design that stretches a minimum of 5.5mm off the surface of the coin.

To give you an idea of just how high the relief is on these coins, consider that the height of George Washington's head coming out of the field on a U.S. quarter is roughly 3/10ths of a millimeter. In comparison, the relief height of a typical Canadian ultra-high relief coin would about 1.2 mm, 4 times that of George on the quarter. These EHR coins at 5.95mm have nearly 20 TIMES the relief height of George on a quarter.

In response, NGC — for the first time ever — is using the special designation Extraordinary High Relief to designate these coins as being of a new relief category entirely above Ultra High Relief.

Unbelievable Relief

On this very special issue, the Royal Canadian Mint chose a design that would appeal not only to their citizens, but also to their neighbors in the United States — a roaming buffalo. The shoulders and head of the buffalo is shown in sharp detail on the obverse, with each design feature distinct and the entire relief rising up to an unbelievable 5.95mm relief. Only 4,000 of the silver pieces were struck.

First Day of Issue, Taylor Signed

This stunning issue is graded by NGC with the prestigious First Day of Issue designation and slabbed in a black core with Canadian Flag labels signed by retired Royal Canadian Mint Senior Engraver, Susan Taylor. Each coin includes a mint certificate of authenticity and comes packaged inside a maple-branded pouch.
