Since the first coins of the world were struck more than 2500 years ago until now, coin designs have been confined to two dimensional coin blanks and the limited relief of traditional minting. With this ground breaking new release, the Royal Canadian Mint brings Canada’s most iconic animals to life with full three dimensional sculptures rising up from the surface of the coins. Each impressive $100 coin in the five coin series is struck in ten ounces of pure silver, and is further enhanced with a layer of 24 karat gold plating. In addition to their artistic beauty, collectability of this revolutionary series is further heightened by an extremely low limited mintage of just 1,200 pieces for each design.
This coin will be presented standing on a round wooden pedestal and protected by a domed cover that allows the coin to be proudly displayed as a work of art. As pure silver coins produced by the Royal Canadian Mint, there is no HST or GST applicable on these coins.
