The Royal Canadian Mint has released Moose silver bullion coin, part of Canadian Wildlife 99.99% pure one-ounce silver bullion coin series. The Canada's largest land mammal pure silver bullion collection was launched today at the World Money Fair in Berlin, Germany before a premier gathering of the world's mints, distributors and buyers. The Mint's Ottawa facility will produce up to one million "Moose" silver bullion coins and will release at least two more special issues by early 2013. A total of six different species of Canada's legendary wildlife will thus have been depicted on finely crafted bullion coins struck of the same pure silver as the Mint's world-famous Silver Maple Leaf bullion coins.
The “Moose” silver bullion coin is struck from one troy ounce of 99.99% pure silver and has a face value of $5. The design of a majestic creature which rules Canada’s forests from Newfoundland to the Pacific Coast has been illustrated on the reverse of this coin by Senior Mint Engraver William Woodruff. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, created in 2003 by Canadian portrait artist Susanna Blunt.
"The Royal Canadian Mint is pleased that our bullion coins continue to attract customers from around the world and receive acclaim for their purity, quality and craftsmanship," said Ian E. Bennett, President and CEO of the Royal Canadian Mint.
"The Mint's Silver Wildlife bullion coin series has been a perennial success with investors and collectors world-wide and we are proud that the market's enthusiastic response to these coins proves once more that the Royal Canadian Mint's products are at the head of their class."
The 2012-dated "Moose" silver bullion coin will soon be available through the Mint's extensive network of bullion distributors. The next issue in this six-coin series will be announced later this year. For more information about the 2012 Moose Pure Silver Bullion coin you can visit www.mint.ca.
