2015 1/2 oz Calgary Stampede Silver Coin

Celebrate the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth with the 2015 1/2 oz Calgary Stampede Silver Coin produced by the Royal Canadian Mint!

Available exclusively from Silver Gold Bull, this ½ oz silver coin is a special edition 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.

The Calgary Stampede has been representative of the Wild West spirit that has been expressed by the evolution of the city of Calgary. The ten day event traces its roots back over 100 years, and the rodeo events are still the centrepiece of the Stampede. Cowboys from around the world compete for over $2 million in prize money, and the bull riding event is considered the most dangerous eight seconds in sports.

The obverse of the coin was executed by Canadian artist Steve Hepburn. He typically creates his art through oil painting, and his designs have been featured in many publications. Steve has also designed many coins for the Royal Canadian Mint, and this looks to be his finest yet. Hepburn’s bull rider appears to be leaping out of the silver background with all four of the bull’s hooves in the air above stylized clouds of dust. The famed Calgary Stampede logo, complete with cattle brand appears below.

The 2015 ½ oz Calgary Stampede Silver Coin is available individually, in mint-sealed tubes of 20 or in mint-strapped monster boxes of 240 coins (120 ounces). With an unprecedented resale value when selling back to Silver Gold Bull, this coin is a great way to diversify into a fractional silver coin with the security of a product produced by a government mint.
