Request information

To view an elk or wapiti (Cervus canadensis) in the wild is to catch a glimpse of one of Canada's most majestic animal species. Armed with impressive antlers that give it a stately air, the elk moves through the wilderness with a steady, confident gait as it browses for the vegetation that sustains it throughout the seasons. With this coloured fine silver coin, the Royal Canadian Mint celebrates this wild animal species—one that delights wildlife watchers and contributes to Canada's rich biodiversity.

With a steady, confident gait, this herbivore moves through the Canadian wilderness in herds, grazing and browsing for the vegetation that sustains it throughout the seasons. Over half of Canada's total elk population can be found in British Columbia, with a sizeable population found in the mountainous foothills and boreal forests of Alberta. In fact, elk are capable of adapting to a range of landscapes, from marshes to river flats and even semi-arid regions; as partial migrants, they move with the seasons through areas that fall within the boundaries of what they consider to be their homerange—whether this consists of only a few square kilometres or several hundred.
