More info

Pronghorn
Fleet-footed pronghorns are among the speediest animals in North America. They can run at more than 53 miles (86 kilometers) an hour, leaving pursuing coyotes and bobcats in the dust. Pronghorns are also great distance runners that can travel for miles at half that speed. Pronghorns are about three feet (one meter) tall at the shoulders. They are reddish brown, but feature white stomachs and wide, white stripes on their throats. When startled they raise the hair on their rumps to display a white warning patch that can be seen for miles.

 
Design

The reverse design by Canadian artist Julius T. Csotonyi features a wheat field beautifully crafted in colour. The viewpoint is from deep within the grass, looking towards a red barn in the distance. Stalks of wheat tower overhead, but on closer examination, a pronghorn emerges from the scene, shaped by the heads of wheat, the leaves and stems, and the manner in which these elements overlap. The obverse of the coin depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
