The deafening roar of the grizzly bear shakes the forest in this new coin from the Royal Canadian Mint. The reverse of the third and final coin in the three-coin “Call of the Wild” annual series features a design by Canadian Artist Pierre Leduc of the profile of a roaring grizzly bear with waves in the background representing its growl. The central feature of the image is the intricately detailed profile of the head of a bear. It’s muzzle has highly detailed thick fur with its mouth open in full growl.
The obverse features the Susanna Blunt effigy of Queen Elizabeth II and the words “Elizabeth II 200 Dollars Canada”.
The coin is unique, not only for its design but also its release. It features the same security mint mark as the 2016 gold and silver 1 oz Maples, and comes encapsulated in a credit-card style Certicard with the chief assayer’s signature, the weight and date of issuance. The purity of this coin is 99999 pure, the highest purity of any recognized gold coin. The mintage totals for this product will be released after the end of 2016 when sales cease, so sales will be available all year.
