Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Maurade Baynton, your coin transports you to a breathtaking landscape set in western Canada. Under the golden rays of the late summer sun, an elk pauses mid-step while moving across the open grassland near the edge of the boreal forest. The majesty of this iconic species is on full view, its features all engraved in outstanding detail as the elk turns its gaze up at the sky, possibly alerted by the calls of the herd or the sound of birds suddenly taking flight. By turning its head, the elk offers a left-side profile that showcases its facial features and allows the viewer to fully appreciate the width of its pointed antlers, which rise up like the mighty peaks of the Canadian Rockies in the background. The overall design is enhanced by multiple finishes that add an incomparable sense of dimension to the artistry, which conveys respect and admiration for the elk and its role as part of Canada's rich biodiversity.

Packaging:

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.

AMAZING ELK GOLD COIN

5

I instantly fell in love with this coin when I saw it. I was going to buy a series of three silver coins but when I saw this piece, I knew I had to have it. Brilliant design and quality at a low mintage. I noticed it was sold out online but happen to see it at a local Mint Store. This is a keeper and a great investment.
