2012 Canada $50 100 Years of the Calgary Stampede 5oz. Silver (No Tax)

Celebrating 100 Years of the Calgary Stampede

Description:
Bursting with excitement, this 5 oz fine silver proof coin has a denomination of $50 and a diameter of 65 millimeters. Designed by Canadian artist Michelle Grant, it features six-time world champion bucking bronco, Grated Coconut, in full flight, hind legs full extended behind him.

Grated Coconut is ridden by a brave bareback cowboy in chaps and cowboy boots, one hand clutching at the reins with only the harness and flying dressings between man and beast. Details like Grated Coconut’s ‘CS’ shoulder freeze brand and ‘G-65’ hip brand and the rider’s ‘1912’ competitor number-a reminder of the Stampede’s inception year-come to life amidst a curling frame of intricate leather tooling inspired by the trophy saddle of Flores Ladue, wife of Stampede founder Guy Weadick.

The entire image is framed by a raised circle of rope-patterned embossing against a background of pristine polished fine silver. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
