The elk, also known to First Nation tribes as the wapiti, is a majestic creature found throughout the wild ranges of Canada and the United States. Elk are one of the largest land mammals in North America, and feature massive antlers on their heads that grow to tremendous sizes with age.
On the reverse side of the 2016 1 oz $100 Proof Canadian Silver Noble Elk Coin youll find Glen Loates design of a massive elk stag. The male featured in the design has a shaggy mane across its large, bulky chest and has its head raised as it lets out a mating call to females in hopes of out-bidding other male suitors.
The obverse of the Silver Noble Elk Coin includes the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This image was created in 2003 by Canadian artist Susanna Blunt, and often features varying engravings around the design field. In the case of this coin, youll find Her Majestys name and the phrase D.G. Regina engraved.
Each of these stunning coins comes from the 9th release of the $100 for $100 series at the Royal Canadian Mint. The coins ship inside of a graphic collector case that includes a full-color shipper for the Noble Elk release. These proof coins have a serrated edge finish and a matte proof appearance, giving them a strong, frosted appearance.
The Royal Canadian Mint was founded in 1908 as the sovereign mint of Canada. Among its first tasks was the refinement of gold and precious metals flooding in from the Yukon Territories. Today it operates facilities at its headquarters in Ottawa, the federal capital city, and in Winnipeg.
