Description

This 2014 pure gold coin is the second in the Royal Canadian Mint's popular O Canada series, which shines a spotlight on iconic Canadian wildlife. This particular coin honours the deliberate and serene (unless it's mating season) moose, an animal that has permeated Canadian consciousness by somehow becoming an image synonymous with Canadian identity. Though moose are part of the deer family, they are solitary animals and prefer not to live in herds. This piece is 1/10th of an ounce of 99.99% pure gold, struck in a premium-proof finish; with a limited mintage of 4,000, this coin is sure to become a desirable addition to any distinguished gold collection. HST/GST exempt.

 

The Design:

Masterfully engraved and crafted to bring depth and texture, the iconic antlers of this noble animal are displayed to great effect here, as is the painstakingly detailed fur, and Boreal forest background. The moose is depicted here in a three-quarter view, its musculature and steady eyes indicative of its dominant nature.
