The Royal Canadian Mint has struck a series of coins of such incredible high relief that, for the first time in history, respected third-party grading service Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) has given them the new designation of Extraordinary High Relief (EHR). Like a mountain rising out of an ocean of pure gold or silver, the design on these coins sits nearly five times higher than those of the Royal Canadian Mint’s other Ultra High Relief coins!
To strike an EHR coin in 99.99% pure gold, or in any metal in Proof condition, is no simple task. Incredible pressure and specially treated dies are required to achieve the stunning Proof finish, with frosty designs and mirrored fields. When you consider the incredible height of the coin’s relief, the artistry of these coins becomes even more impressive!
Patriotic Bald Eagle Design
For these mountainous gold and silver coins, the Royal Canadian Mint chose a reverse featuring the head of a bald eagle. Created by Royal Canadian Mint artist Neil Hamelin, this design allows for an intense level of detail that would be nearly unnoticeable if struck in standard relief. But minted in Extraordinary High Relief, each feather stands out beautifully. The eye appeal is second to none—especially given the coin’s shimmering Proof condition.
Struck in 99.99% Gold or Silver
The 2020 Extraordinary High Relief Eagle is available struck in one ounce of 99.99% fine silver or 99.99% pure gold. Each coin is official Canada legal tender, with face values of $25 and $250, respectively.
Available Certified Flawless and FDI or FDP by NGC
If you’re going to add such an incredible piece of numismatic art to your collection, do it right and secure yours graded by NGC in flawless Proof-70 Ultra Cameo (PF70 UC) condition. Not only have these coins gained NGC’s first-ever Extraordinary High Relief designation, but they also come with a second designation—that of First Day of Issue (FDI). Coins bearing the FDI designation were received for grading within the first 24 hours of the mintage’s release.
A limited number of coins have alternatively been designated as both Extraordinary High Relief and First Day of Production (FDP), meaning they come certified by both NGC and the Royal Canadian Mint as being some of the very first coins of the mintage to be struck!
Each graded and certified coin will arrive in a custom display holder designed to contain and protect its Extraordinary High Relief contents. That holder will feature a black core and an exclusive label hand-signed by Susan Taylor, retired Royal Canadian Mint Senior Engraver.
