I suspect this is actually an Ibex, but horns and hooves seems close enough.

Not sure that I have many with the whole deer, but this antler should get me half credit.

It is a Pfennig from the German City State of Siesia (Sorau mint) minted between 1340 and 1424 AD.

@pepac - nice design.
@owatchman - I did not know Canada had a Pronghorn Antelope coin. I always think of the following when I see one of these animals:
I have always read they do not interbreed with whitetail deer.

This bit of taxidermy was at what used to the be the Thunderbird Motel near the Mall of Americas in Y2K. The following animal was in the same hallway with a bunch of mounted Pronghorns and Whitetails. Now THAT I would love to see on a coin! Maybe 1 oz rounds?

thanks Jbuck !

the legend of saint Hubert (from Liège) was only a couple of decades old when this coin was made

nice webpage is this one:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hubertus

Saint Hubert of Liège is patron of archers; dogs; forest workers; trappers; hunting; huntsmen; mathematicians; metal workers; and smelters.
