More info

Bighorn Sheep
The bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis) is a species of sheep native to North America named for its large horns. These horns can weigh up to 14 kilograms (30 pounds), while the sheep themselves weigh up to 140 kg (300 lb). Recent genetic testing indicates three distinct subspecies of Ovis canadensis, one of which is endangered: O. c. sierrae. Sheep originally crossed to North America over the Bering land bridge from Siberia: the population in North America peaked in the millions, and the bighorn sheep entered into the mythology of Native Americans. By 1900, the population had crashed to several thousand, due to diseases introduced through European livestock and overhunting.

 
Design

The reverse design by Canadian artist Jori van der Linde presents a stylized, artistic take on the traditional image of a Bighorn Sheep. Inspired by the Zentangle method of drawing, a captivating combination of abstract patterns adds a sense of texture, depth and creative contrast to this creative portrait, as each motif fills the space within the outline of the sheep’s distinctive curled horns and woolly features. On top of the reverse, the inscription: “CANADA” – the issuing country. On the bottom, the inscriptions: “30 DOLLARS” – the face value and “2019” – the year of issue. The obverse recreates one of the patterns seen on the reverse (albeit on a larger scale), and features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt and the inscriptions: “ELIZABETH II” – the name of the Queen and “D · G · REGINA” – Dei Gratia Regina.
