At the World Money Fair held in Berlin, the Royal Canadian Mint launched the latest coins from their Canadian Birds of Prey 1 oz silver bullion coin and Call of the Wild 1 oz gold bullion coin series.
“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,” said Marc Brûlé, Interim President and CEO of the Royal Canadian Mint. “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-dated “Red Tailed Hawk” is the third release within the four coin 1 oz 99.99% pure silver bullion Canadian Birds of Prey series. The reverse design features a vivid illustration of the agile airborne predator by acclaimed Canadian coin designer and nature illustrator Emily Damstra. The new silver bullion coins have a maximum mintage of one million pieces.
The 2015-dated “Growling Cougar” is the second release within the three coin 1 oz 99.999% pure gold bullion Call of the Wild series. The coins of this series carry a denomination of $200, representing the highest legal tender value 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. These coins will be produced to demand.
Both coins will ship to the Royal Canadian Mint’s network of official distributors the week of February 2, 2015. In keeping with a distribution model common to the world’s major bullion coin issuers, the Mint does not sell bullion directly to the public. Interested buyers can contact a reputable bullion dealer to order these new gold and silver bullion coins.
