When I think of Manitoba, bulls don't immediately come to my mind. I wonder why that is. Please describe the significance of the art.

The Bison is the Manitoba Provincial Symbol. It also appears on the provincial flag.

Ahh.. got it. BLUSH. Been to Manitoba several times in my life and must have missed it. I suppose there aren't many people outside Minnesota that could describe our flag in detail (without cheating).

Thank you all. Cool looking coin.
