It’s the most famous prehistoric Ice Age predator, and if you were a young mammoth or mastodon, the last thing you’d want to see is Smilodon
fatalis suddenly lunging at you and flashing its oversized fangs!

“Smilodon” means “scalpel tooth,” a fitting descriptor for an ancient big cat whose deadly canines measured up to 18 centimetres long. A key top
predator, the sabre-toothed cat would have stalked large herbivores—horses, camels, giant ground sloths and more—by hiding and pouncing on
them, much like today’s big cats.

Despite being synonymous with the Ice Age, you won’t find Smilodon perched atop a glacier—this prehistoric big cat preferred warmer climes. Its
fossils are among the most common ones found in the tar pit deposits of California, but its range extended across ice-free areas of North, Central
and South America. In 2019, a 35,000-to-40,000-year-old bone became the first verified evidence of Smilodon fatalis’ existence in the prehistoric
plains of southern Alberta, before becoming extinct at the end of the Pleistocene epoch, around 11,700 years ago.
The obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The obverse also bears a special marking that includes four pearls
symbolizing the four effigies that have graced Canadian coins and the double date of her reign.
