The 2015 11/4 oz Canadian Silver Bison Coin
JM Bullion is pleased to offer limited quantities of remaining 2015 1.25 oz Bison coins. The 2015 Silver Bison was the first coin in the Bison series, and also the first ever 11/4 oz silver bullion coin produced by the RCM.
The 2016 11/4 oz Canadian Silver Bison Coin
The Royal Canadian Mint is known by coin collectors and precious metal investors across the world for quality bullion coins. The RCM is also viewed as a trailblazer in the industry with regard to its innovations in the area of precious metal coin design, metal purity and anti-counterfeit features. The brand new, IRA-eligible, 2016 11/4 oz Canadian Silver Bison Coin is a prime example of these strengths, featuring a totally unique deign as the second coin in the Canadian Bison series.
Each coin features exquisite artistry, a high silver purity of .9999 and anti-counterfeit radial lines similar to the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Coin. The Bison also has a legal tender face value in Canada of $8 CAD. JM Bullion, being the exclusive distributor of these coins in the U.S.A. is proud to offer the 2016 11/4 oz Canadian Silver Bison Coin to investors in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
Silver Bison Coin Design
On the reverse of the coin is a totally unique design which features a Bison at the center. The animal is depicted standing in a pool of water with a small mountain range off in the distance. On the animal itself, great attention has been paid to the design and by viewing the coin, you will notice every fine detail from the animal’s fur to its tail.
Featured above the bison is a stamp for the coin’s purity which is 9999. Around the scene, inscriptions for the country and minting year are stamped as “CANADA 2016.” Circling around the bottom portion of the coin are inscriptions for the metal type and the weight. This information is stamped as “FINE SILVER 1 1/4 OZ ARGENT PUR.” This information serves as a border to the central design and, like the obverse, is complimented by repeating radial lines.
Each of the 11/4 oz Canadian Silver Bison Coins feature the famous artwork of Susana Blunt on their obverse side. In Blunt’s portrait, Queen Elizabeth II is featured in profile. She is complimented by an array of radial lines which protrude outwards to the rim of the coin. To the left of the queen’s portrait is her name which is stamped as “Elizabeth II.” The coin’s face value is inscribed below her as “8 Dollars.” Imprinted on the queen’s right shoulder are the initials “SB” to denote the artist Susanna Blunt.
While the Bison coin has the same diameter as a normal Silver Maple Leaf, the thickness is increased 25% to satisfy the 11/4 troy ounce weight. This gives the coin a chunky, heavy feel, similar to the 1.5 oz bullion coins the Royal Canadian Mint has produced in the past.
Anti-Counterfeit Features and Mint Packaging
As we only acquire these coins directly from the Royal Canadian Mint, you can rest assured knowing that the products you purchase are 100% authentic and pure. On top of this, each coin features advanced anti-counterfeit radial lines, engineered to tolerances measured in microns, which help add an extra layer of security to owning these coins. First featured on the 2014 Canadian Silver Maple Leaf, these radial lines mean that the coins are nearly impossible to fake, and make the Bison one of the most secure government-issued silver coins available on the market.
