Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
This striking $200 ultra-high relief pure gold coin combines incredible craftsmanship with a low mintage of only 500 coins that makes it attractive to the savvy collector. This coin weighs over one troy ounce and is struck in stunning 99.999% gold, the purest, most refined gold available in the world today. This coin captures the beauty of Canada’s elusive Lynx in a forceful show of strength. Native to the boreal forests that stretch from Yukon to Newfoundland, the Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis) is one of the most common wild cats in Canada. Yet, encounters with this stealthy, agile predator remain rare. The use of multiple finishes and ultra-high relief techniques provide added depth, and further showcase the combined craftsmanship and artistry that have produced this intense coin design.

The reverse image by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc offers a close-up portrait of the elusive hunter, the Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis). The lynx’s long, shaggy winter coat is rendered in exceptional detail, from the black tips of its beard-like fur to the fine whiskers that stretch out on either side of the face. Despite its elusive nature, this predator’s fierce gaze holds steady as it vocalizes its displeasure, holding its jaw open in mid-roar to reveal sharp teeth. The ears, with whisker-like tufts rising up from the tips, stand pointed as though they first detected the intrusion that drew the lynx’s attention in the direction of the viewer.

The coin has a weight of 33.17 grams (just over 1 ounce), and a diameter of 30 mm. Mintage is very limited to just 500 pieces worldwide. As a pure gold coin struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is GST/HST exempt.
