The 2014 Canadian Howling Wolf 1 oz gold coin is the first in the three-coin “Call of the Wild” gold coin series from the Royal Canadian Mint. Struck from 1 troy ounce of extra-pure “five nines” (.99999 fine) gold, this coin is packaged inside a capsule embedded into an attractive assay card.
The obverse of this coin displays the Susanna Blunt portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The weight, purity and face value are inscribed along the bottom rim. The $200 denomination of the Howling Wolf gold coin is the highest face value of any 1 oz gold bullion coin in the world. The reverse features an extremely detailed portrait of a howling wolf, with arched “sound waves” resonating in the background. This beautiful gold bullion coin incorporates the same micro-etched nested maple leaf security mark found on the 2014 Gold Maple Leaf and Silver Maple Leaf.
The artist who created the reverse design for this coin, Pierre Leduc, is no stranger to designing wildlife coins for the Royal Canadian Mint; he has worked on both the gold and silver “O Canada!” bullion coin series, as well as platinum coins. The incredible 99.999% pure gold content of the 1 oz Howling Wolf coin makes it one of the most appealing new coins on the market for those looking to invest in gold.
