Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Here is a coin sure to excite lovers of early creatures, and the first in an exciting new series from the Royal Canadian Mint celebrating prehistoric animals! This stunning gold coin observes the fascinating woolly mammoth, the last in a line of mammoth species that went extinct roughly 10,000 years ago, although it has been discovered that isolated populations survived on an island in the Arctic Ocean as little as 4,000 years ago! This impressive, imagination-capturing creature once roamed parts of present-day Canada, as trackways made by a herd of Woolly Mammoth almost 11,000 years ago were found in the St. Mary Resocoir in Southwestern Alberta. Their very long tusks (up to 15 feet!) and shaggy exterior have become emblems of modern ideas about the Ice Age. On this coin, we see the imposing figure of the Mammoth in profile as he moves through low grasses and sloping hills. The exceptional detail in the engraving of the fur is brought to life with a soft matte finish, while the background of the coin boasts a bright proof finish. Crafted in 1/10th of an ounce of 99.99% pure gold, this coin would make an exceptional gift or addition to any gold coin collection.
