Celebrate the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth with the 1/2 oz Calgary Stampede Silver Coin, produced by the Royal Canadian Mint!
This ½ oz silver coin is an uncommon Royal Canadian Mint issue as it is priced as bullion, rather than like a numismatic coin. The $2 face value gives holders the security of knowing the coin will be honoured as legal tender in Canada. With low premiums and an unprecedented guaranteed resale value when selling to Silver Gold Bull, you can be assured that your investment is a sound one.
Since 1912 the Calgary Stampede has been representative of the Wild West spirit that has been expressed by the evolution of the City of Calgary. The Calgary Stampede traces its roots back to the Calgary Frontier Days and Cowboy Championship. The rodeo events, still the centrepiece of the Calgary Stampede, are the richest tournament-style rodeo in the world. Cowboy athletes compete for over $2 million in prize money, and the bull riding event is considered the most dangerous and glamorous event in the show.
The obverse of the coin was executed by Canadian artist Steve Hepburn. 他通常用油画进行艺术创作，他的设计见于众多出版物。 史蒂夫也为加拿大皇家造币厂设计了许多硬币，而此款看起来是他至今最好的设计。 Hepburn的驯牛士似乎要从银色背景跳出来，公牛四蹄飞跃在程式化的尘团之上。 著名的卡尔加里牛仔节徽标，包括下方的牛印记。
These coins may have tarnish or milk spots, but that does not change the grade of the coins.
