The Royal Canadian Mint was founded in 1908 and has become a world leader in issuing high-quality circulation, numismatic, and bullion coins. Struck in the finest purity of .99999 fine gold, the 2015 Gold Growling Cougar is the second release in the Royal Canadian Mint’s ‘Call of the Wild’ series. The cougar is one of Canada’s most powerful, elusive, and beautiful predators. This silent hunter is a perfect subject for the Royal Canadian Mint’s ‘Call of the Wild’ 3-coin series.
The reverse design by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc presents a profile portrait of a cougar backed by lines representing the cougar’s growl. The central feature of the image is the highly detailed right-side profile of the head of a cougar growling. The Royal Canadian Mint engravers have lent additional beauty to the artistry of the original design; the finishes on this coin really emphasize the muzzle spiked with long whiskers, short round ears, and dense fur are presented in full detail, bringing the intensity of the moment fully to life.
The 2015 Gold Growling Cougar feature a small security privy, engraved with the number “15,” correspond with the year of issue, which is visible only under magnification. Guaranteed by the Canadian government of its weight and purity, this coin was crafted using RCM’s exacting standard of 99.999% pure gold, the highest standard of pure gold available in the world
Each coin is encapsulated and held in a plastic card packaging.
