The 2016 1.25 oz Canadian Bison silver coin is the second annual release of this 1.25 oz silver coin. The coin was produced with precisely machined radial lines around the outside of the reverse, while the obverse features the radial lines throughout.

The obverse features the Susanna Blunt effigy of Queen Elizabeth II along with an increased face value of $8 reflecting the increased silver content in this coin.

The reverse features a buffalo standing in a river, about to take a drink. Mountains are visible in the background. New for 2016, the coin features a micro-engraved maple leaf with the numeral "16" in the centre, denoting the year of issue.

This unusual coin has a very heavy hand-feel due to the added quarter ounce of silver. It retains the same diameter as other RCM silver coins, but is thicker than 1 oz silver coins.

In multiples of 20 these coins will be shipped in a plastic tube. In multiples of 400 these coins will be shipped in a monster box.
