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 2016 Gold Roaring Grizzly Bear is the third release in the Royal Canadian Mint’s ‘Call of the Wild’ 3-coin series. The grizzly bear is Canada’s second-largest land-based carnivore, the powerful grizzly merits a substantial coin. Though this enigmatic animal is normally elusive, the Royal Canadian Mint has captured one here for you in this beautiful coin.
The reverse design by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc presents a profile portrait of a grizzly bear backed by lines representing the bear’s growl. The central feature of the image is the highly detailed right-side profile of the head of a grizzly bear 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 dense fur, presented in full detail, bringing the intensity of the moment fully to life.
The 2016 Gold Roaring Grizzly Bear feature a small security privy, engraved with the number “16,” 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.
