The 9th release in the Royal Canadian MintÕs groundbreaking $100 for $100 series features the iconic elk, also known as the wapiti. The majestic elk is one of CanadaÕs most striking native species and one of North AmericaÕs largest land-based mammals.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Glen Loates features a portrait of a bugling elk stag. Set against the stunning backdrop of the Canadian Rockies, the male elk is presented in profile from its left side. Its vast antlers are beautifully showcased as the elk raises its head to call to females and out-bid male rivals. The elkÕs shaggy Òmane,Ó large powerful chest, and sloping rump are engraved
in extraordinary detail using various finishing techniques. The elk stands on a rocky outcropping. In the background, a river flows through tree-lined foothills and jagged snow-peaked mountains rise against the horizon.

A fine investment or perfect gift for lovers of nature, Canadian native fauna, and Canadiana.
