With a stance as commanding as the bronze bull of Manhattan’s Wall Street District, this Aquitaine bull brings its own breed of economic optimism and strength to this bullion coin. The characteristic upswing of a charging bull’s horns symbolizes the rising stock prices of a “bullish” market. This is in direct contrast to the downward slash of a bear’s paw during a “bear market” where decreasing stock values warrant caution until the trend reverses.
The Blonde Aquitaine has been valued by farmers as long ago as the Middle Ages in the Aquitaine District of southwest France. US and Canadian ranchers began discovering the breed in the early 1970s, and quickly embraced its easygoing and hardy nature, and its ability to forage on rocky or sparse terrain. The Blonde Aquitaine is a moderate-sized breed that delivers excellent returns due to its high growth rate, lean muscling and calving success. It’s an enduring and dependable breed that promises to build a momentum of optimism and confidence well into the 21st century!
