The elk or wapiti (Cervus canadensis) is highly sociable and communicative at all times, but the regal bull’s loudest vocalizations are reserved for the rut in the fall, when he bugles loudly to make his presence known. It’s a distinctive call of the wild that serves as a show of strength and vitality, and adds to the majesty of this Canadian species, captured here in stunning 99.99% pure gold. With a limited mintage of just 25 coins worldwide, this is an extremely limited collecting opportunity that will bring added prestige to your collection. HST/GST exempt.


The Design:

The coin’s large diameter is a fitting canvas for the second-largest member of the deer family. It also allows for outstanding detail work that adds a stunning sense of texture and dimension to this wildlife portrait! Each engraved detail shines against the mirror-like

The reverse design by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc features a side profile of a majestic elk (Cervus canadensis). Detailed engraving adds a sense of texture to this majestic species' fur and towering rack of antlers, which overlap the field. Lifting its heavy head towards the sky, the bull releases its high-pitched cry into the autumn breeze, allowing it to resonate across the forest and river valley depicted in the background.
