    2015 Canadian Silver Bison Coin from JM Bullion

    One of the most exciting silver coin programs from the Royal Canadian Mint just happens to be an exclusive release of JM Bullion. The Royal Canadian Mint and JM Bullion have a partnership that ensures the exclusive launch of each new design in the Canadian Silver Bison series appears first on the JM Bullion line catalog.

    When these brilliant coins were first released, they marked the arrival of 1.25 oz pure silver coins for the first time ever from the Royal Canadian Mint. The coins have rotating designs on the reverse field, which means the motif of the 2015 Canadian Silver Bison Coin is unique to this release year. When these designs sell out, they are gone for good!

    The 2015 Canadian Silver Bison Coin

    The newest Canadian commemorative bullion product from the Royal Canadian Mint is the annual release Canadian Silver Bison. Debuting in 2015, the Canadian Silver Bison coin features .9999 pure silver content, with a face value of $8 (CAD) fully backed by the government of Canada. The Royal Canadian Mint will produce a new image on the reverse face of these coins each. Features of the available design on these coins to date include:

    • 2015 Obverse: As is customary, the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II from Susanna Blunt is featured on the obverse. Her Majesty’s effigy is included alongside engravings that read “Elizabeth II” and the face value of the coin as “8 Dollars.”
    • 2015 Reverse: The reverse design features the North American bison as it runs across the open plains of Canada, with rolling hills visible in the distant background.

    Inclusion of Security Features

    In 2014, the Royal Canadian Mint debuted a range of new security features on its Canadian Maple Leaf series of bullion coins. Those new security features, which include micro-laser engraved radial lines and a maple leaf privy added to the Maple Leaf bullion program in 2014 became available on the 2015 Canadian Silver Bison from its initial launch. The features includes radial lines visible on both sides, and a maple leaf privy on the reverse that bears in the year of issue, visible only under intense magnification.

    Available Conditions

    The 2015 Canadian Silver Bison Coin is available for purchase today from JM Bullion in a variety of different conditions. The first releases of the product are available in BU, or brilliant uncirculated condition. Coins in this condition exhibit no signs of wear and tear, though you may notice minor flaws ranging from breaks in the luster and spotted surfaces to contact marks from the coining process. These coins ship to you in one of three different packages:

    • Individual coins arrive in a protective plastic capsule or flip.
    • Multiples of 20 coins ship to you in BU condition inside of plastic mint tubes.
    • Multiples of 500 coins in BU condition arrive in a Royal Canadian Mint monster box.

    Additionally, the 2015 Canadian Silver Bison is available in two different grades and conditions from both of the major certification services in the world. JM Bullion currently offers the following options:

    • NGC MS70: Graded a perfect coin by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation, these coins have full, original mint luster and lack all detracting flaws on the surfaces.
    • NGC MS69 ER: Each of these specimens is in near-perfect condition, which indicates the presence of the full, original mint luster but also a maximum of two minor detracting flaws such as miniscule contact marks or hairlines. The ER designation stands for Early Release, indicating they were received by the NGC within 30 days of the RCM’s planned release date for grading and sale.
    • PCGS MS69 FS: These coins are in the exact same condition as listed above, including the First Strike designation (which is comparable to ER), with the only exception being these coins were received and graded by the Professional Coin Grading Service.

    Background on the Royal Canadian Mint

    Originally founded in 1908, the Royal Canadian Mint has today grown to become one of the world’s preeminent sovereign mints. Canadian currency was originally, from 1858 until 1908, struck by the Royal Mint in London. The growth of Canada as a nation in its own right, combined with the discovery of gold and other precious metals in the Yukon Territories, eventually facilitated the need for the nation to have its own mint.

    The Royal Canadian Mint operated for nearly 70 years with only its original Ottawa coining facility. In 1976, a secondary mint location opened in Winnipeg, nearly 16 years after the government was advised of a need to expand capacity. At one point in time, the Royal Canadian Mint had to turn to the United States Mint to produce circulation currency for the nation.

    Today, the royal Canadian Mint strikes more than 1 billion coins annually. In addition to its popular Canadian Maple Leaf series of gold, silver, and platinum bullion coins, the mint also strikes currency for as many as a dozen other countries.
