2014 Canada $5 10th Ounce Gold Woolly Mammoth - NGC PF 70 UCAM ER

1 sold

The coin features a scientifically accurate depiction of a woolly mammoth, verified by paleontologists from the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology. With its head raised, the mammoth's trunk is outstretched between its famously long, curved tusks. The thick, coarse fur that enables it to survive the colder temperatures is shorter here, reflecting the moulting that scientists believe took place in the early summer. The mammoth's extra hump of fat is seen over the shoulders and in the background, the low grasses and gentle sloping hills of the mammoth's habitat stretches past the image's outer rim on both sides.
