The Great Migrations – Caribou 1oz Silver Coin is the third release in this awe-inspiring coin collection from New Zealand Mint.
This exciting collection celebrates one of nature's impressive wonders, when millions of animals start their great annual migration, covering vast distances in search for food, mating partners or shelter.
Each year, when spring approaches, thousands of caribou in North America start their long northbound journey towards the Arctic. This difficult journey is the longest land migration in North America and the caribou cover distances up to 2,500 kilometers (1,600 miles) a year.
The reason for the caribou migrating is to get access to plentiful food, to bear their calves in safety and to find relief from summer insects. Later with autumn arriving, the herds start their return journey back south.
This stunning coin shows an engraved herd of migrating caribou against a selection of caribou highlighted in colour in the foreground.
The coin comes in a compact printed rectangular coin case, which incorporates an impressive, printed scene of this great migration. The uniquely numbered Certificate of Authenticity is presented within the packaging.
The New Zealand Mint will release no more than 3,000 of the 2017 Great Migrations Caribou 1oz Silver Proof Coin.
