An iconic Canadian wildlife portrait, well over an ounce of the purest gold in the world, and a mintage of just 450 pieces combine to make this $350 gold coin one of the top offerings from the RCM in 2021. The design captures the majesty of the caribou in an alpine landscape. This iconic creature is a regular resident of our untamed landscapes and a cornerstone of Indigenous culture. Its strength and resilience, as well as its agility and beauty, make it a fitting emblem of Canada itself. Its image never ceases to inspire, especially when captured in exceptionally fine detail and in the highest standard of gold purity (99.999%) as seen on this numismatic work of art. Mintage is extremely limited to 450. HST/GST exempt.
Designed by Canadian wildlife artist W. Allan Hancock, your coin’s reverse captures the majesty of the caribou in an equally majestic alpine landscape. A close view allows for a detailed view of the caribou’s features, especially the antlers that reach up to the partly cloudy sky, while a second caribou steps into sight in the distance. Also engraved on the reverse are the word “CANADA” and the year “2021”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
