Its obverse bears the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Canadian portrait artist Susanna Blunt and a $200 face value.

The reverse design of 2012 "Cougar" silver bullion coin is the work of Senior Mint Engraver William Woodruff and its obverse features the Susanna Blunt effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. This 99.99% pure silver bullion coin bears a face value of $5.
