The Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) has made a splash in the silver and gold investment community as late with many of their limited mintage bullion coins, such as the Wildlife Series and others, including the Birds Of Prey silver bullion coins and the Call of the Wild gold bullion coins, the latest coins of which were recently released.
RCM launched the latest Canadian Birds of Prey 1 oz silver bullion coin and Call of the Wild 1 oz gold bullion coin series, respectively, this month. .
“The Royal Canadian Mint is very proud to stand out as a diverse and innovative player in the bullion industry with products that create excitement among precious metal investors and collectors around the world,” Marc Brûlé, Interim President and CEO of the Royal Canadian Mint, said. “We are pleased that our new ‘Red-Tailed Hawk’ pure silver and our ‘Growling Cougar’ 5-9s gold bullion coins are answering sustained demand for the quality, purity and originality that are the hallmarks of the Royal Canadian Mint.”
The 2015 “Red Tailed Hawk” represents the third release of the four coin 1 oz 99.99% pure silver bullion Canadian Birds of Prey series. With a clear illustration on the reverse of the red-tailed hawk, designed by Canadian coin designer and nature illustrator Emily Damstra, the coin continues the tradition of beautiful bullion coins by RCM. The maximum mintage of the new coins will be a mere one million.
The 99.999% pure gold bullion Call of The Wild series is the 2015 “Growing Cougar,” the second release of the three coin series, continues in the Mint’s tradition of producing the most beautiful bullion coins in the world. The denomination on the coins is $200, which is more than the Canadian Gold Maple’s denomination of $50. The coins in this series are the largest legal tender values amongst the world’s 1 oz gold bullion coins.
The reverse design by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc illustrates a cougar with lines representing the sound waves of its unmistakable growl. The Royal Canadian Mint’s micro-engraved visible security feature is also incorporated, something the RCM has incorporated in a few of their coins. These coins will be produced as demand dictates.
Both coins will ship to the Royal Canadian Mint’s official distributor the week of February 2, 2015. Interested buyers can contact Gold Silver Bitcoin.
