While many of the animals featured in the Call of the Wild Series have familiar noises to even those who don’t spend time in the wild, you might not be able to call to mind the sound an elk makes. The howl of a wolf, the roar of a grizzly, or growl of a cougar are undoubtedly recognizable to most.
However, the sound of an elk might be something you’ve never heard before. Its natural call is known as a bugle or bugling. The elk uses its bugling call most commonly during the mating season as it seeks to establish dominance over other males and attract female mating partners.
All 2017 1 oz Canadian Gold Elk Coins in this listing are perfect specimens from the NGC certifiers. Coins that earn a Mint State 70 certification have full, original mint luster and lack all possible detracting flaws on the surface areas and design elements of the coin.
The obverse of Canadian Gold Elk Coins features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This is the fourth-generation design which was created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt for the Royal Canadian Mint to issue on coinage. In addition to capturing the Queen in a new era of her reign, it is the first design since her father George VI’s 1937-1952 depiction to feature the monarch without a crown.
On the reverse of the 2017 1 oz Canadian Gold Elk Coins is the bugling elk. One of the largest species of deer alive today, the elk is known as a wapiti to the First Nation tribes of Canada and should not be confused with the use of elk in British English, which refers to the larger moose species.
