2017 1 oz Gold RCM Elk .99999
The fourth gold bullion coin in the Royal Canadian Mint’s Call of the Wild series, the 1 oz Gold Canadian Elk is rendered in exquisite detail to celebrate this "Call of the Wild" coin. Known for its towering antlers, this “crowned” prince of the wild is largely found in western Canada, with some populations scattered across the Prairie Provinces and in different parts of Ontario. The elk typically lives in a single-sex grouping, with cows, calves and younger bulls forming a summer herd while mature bulls form separate groups. But once the rut begins, the mature bull sets out to establish a harem using its distinctive cry to attract potential mates. Should a rival bellow a challenge, a show of force ensues: both parties engage in mirroring to seize up one another’s strength, and the tension builds until there’s a retreat or a clash of antlers, the outcome of which ultimately determines dominance.
This 1 oz .99999 fine gold incorporates the latest security features in the form of a micro-engraved maple leaf and a tamper proof assay card to confirm its authenticity. As an even more secure investment option, this coin is a great piece to acquire for both investors and collectors.
The reverse design by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc presents a profile portrait of an elk. The Royal Canadian Mint engravers have lent additional beauty to the artistry of the original design; the finishes on this coin really emphasize the dense fur, presented in full detail, bringing the intensity of the moment fully to life. An effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Canada’s head of state, appears on the obverse surface along with the coin’s CAD 200 face value and its year of issue.
