The third and last coin in the Royal Canadian Mint's "Call of the Wild" series, the 2016 Roaring Grizzly 1oz gold coin showcases the largest land predator of Canada, aside from the Polar Bear. This coin is struck from .99999 "five nines" pure gold, the highest recognized purity of gold. The $200 face value is the largest denomination in the world for a 1 troy oz gold bullion coin.
Like the preceding two coins in the series, the Howling Wolf and the Growling Cougar, the design of the 2016 Roaring Grizzly 1 oz gold coin features stylized sound waves behind a fearsome predator. In this case, the design is a detailed and accurate depiction of a grizzly bear by artist Pierre Leduc. The .99999 purity of the coin in English and French runs along the rim underneath the imposing bruin, with the issuing nation of Canada emblazoned across the top. A laser-etched micro engraving appears underneath the grizzly's throat. A security feature unique to the Royal Canadian Mint, the last two digits of the mint date can be seen inside nested maple leafs.
The obverse features the Susana Blunt portrait of Elizabeth II as Queen, with the abbreviation "D. G. Regina" (by the Grace of God, Queen.) Below the Queen is the denomination of $200, and above her is the year date 2016.
This beautiful extra-pure gold bullion coin comes sealed in a full-color assay card.
Known as the brown bear in Canada and Alaska, the grizzly is one of the most intimidating specimens of North American wildlife. Don't miss out on this last coin of the Call of the Wild gold coin series. Trap a Roaring Grizzly 1 oz gold coin from the Royal Canadian Mint today!
