2005 First Day of Minting Obverse & ReverseThe Caribou Quarter
The caribou design was created by Canadian artist Emanuel Hahn and first used in 1937. For over 80 years now the quarter has depicted the caribou, an ideal representative of Canadian wildlife. This gregarious, curious animal is a familiar sight in northern Canada, traveling in bands of ten to fifty and in herds of up to 100,000 during migration. Caribou of can run at speeds of almost 50 miles per hour and may travel 3,000 miles in a year. Both male and female caribou grow antlers. Originally silver, from 1968 until 2000 the 25 cent coin was made of nickel, then its composition was changed to nickel-plated steel.
