The Call of the Wild Series
The Call of the Wild series set out to depict Canada’s most vicious predators in some of their most animalistic moments. The Growling Cougar coin follows the first issue in the series, the Howling Wolf, which depicts a wolf howling at the moon. Just as the first coin did, this gold coin holds a Maple Leaf security feature and the last two digits of the year engraved on it. Each coin in this series is minted in 1 oz. of the purest .9999 fine gold, beholds a beautifully detailed design, and comes packaged in an assay certificate. The third coin in this series is expected to be released around February 2016.
Design of the 2015 Gold Growling Cougar
The obverse of this coin holds an image of a Canadian cougar as it shows its teeth and presumably lets out a vicious growl. The lines shown behind the cougar are sound waves to emphasize its cry in an artistic way. This side of the coin also shows the Maple Leaf privy mark with the number “15” laser-engraved on it. This is a security feature that helps prevent counterfeiting. Inscribed on this side of the coin are the words: “CANADA,” “FINE GOLD 99999,” and “1 oz. OR PUR.”
The reverse of this coin bears the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Susanna Blunt. Her pearl earrings and necklace are beautifully captured on this design that appears on coins minted by the Royal Canadian Mint. The inscriptions on this side of the coin read: “ELIZABETH II,” “200 DOLLARS,” and “2015.”
