To spy a moose in the wild is to catch a glimpse of Canada’s untamed spirit. This gentle giant of the forest is a powerful, solitary creature that may be found in nearly every province and territory. Often seen near lakes and muskegs, the moose’s imposing size makes for an unforgettable wildlife encounter—one that is forever preserved on this prestigious collectible. The largest member of the deer family is the latest Canadian species to be immortalized in 99.999% (five nines) pure gold—a world benchmark. In fact, this high-denomination offering is one of the world’s purest gold coins. Its rich gleam is striking and elegant, and it also colours the morning scene on the reverse, where precision engraving captures the majesty of the forest and its antlered ambassador.

Design:

Designed by Claude Thivierge, your coin is a one-on-one encounter with Alces alces in an idyllic setting. Partially shrouded in a blanket of morning mist, the forest basks in the golden glow of sunrise. A bull moose stands in the water near the grass-lined edge, where it quietly feeds on aquatic plants. Presented in a three-quarter view, the moose has turned its head towards the viewer, which brings its rack of antlers into full view. The reverse includes the engraved word “CANADA” and the year “2019”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
  • The moose isn’t native to the Island of Newfoundland
    The moose is native to Labrador, but on the island, individuals were introduced to Gander Bay in 1878 and Howley in 1904. Today, the island of Newfoundland is home to more than 110,000 moose.
  • The moose is a solid swimmer
    It has been known to swim a distance of 19 kilometres and dive more than 5.5 metres to reach plants at the bottom of a lake. Water also helps it cool down in the summer, when the moose is vulnerable to heat and ticks.
  • Even without its antlers, the moose is larger than a caribou and taller than a horse
    A mature bull (male) moose can weigh up to 550 kilograms and stand 2 metres tall from hoof to shoulder. Its size, dewlap (the fur-covered flap on the lower jaw) and flattened antlers set it apart from its smaller-sized cousin, the caribou. Only the males grow antlers, which span 120-150 centimetres and are shed annually.

Packaging:

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