Canadian Silver Moose Coins

The Canadian Wildlife Silver Bullion Coins are a Royal Canadian Mint struck series with designs featuring the abundant wildlife of Canada. The series features a total of six unique silver bullion coins released by the Mint over a three-year period.

The 2011 1 oz Canadian Silver Moose is the 4th of the six coins in this highly popular series. The first five releases feature animals well-known to those who are familiar with Canadian wildlife, and could almost be considered iconic of the creatures found in the country.

Five coins have been released to date:

  • 2011 Silver Wolf
  • 2011 Silver Grizzly
  • 2012 Silver Cougar
  • 2012 Silver Moose
  • 2013 Silver Pronghorn Antelope

Each coin in the Wildlife Series has a maximum mintage of 1,000,000. The new design and the release date for the last coin of the series have not yet been disclosed.

Meet the Moose: The moose is the largest member of the deer family and is the largest land mammal in Canada. An adult moose stands between 4.6 - 6.9 feet high. The male (bull moose) can weigh between 840-1,500 lb. Moose have a vast range, and can be found from Newfoundland to the Pacific Coast. Moose are powerful swimmers and can dive for plants at the bottom of a lake. Swimming helps them cool off during the summer because they can't tolerate heat.
