Canadian silver $100 for $100 range continues the Wildlife in Motion series with the Muskox
Pioneers and most enthusiastic proponent of precious metal face-value coins, the Royal Canadian Mint have released their latest Wildlife in Motion coin in the $100 series. Following on from the 2013 Bison and Grizzly, the 2014 Bald Eagle and Bighorn Sheep, and the 2015 Horse coins, this coin is the sixth in the $100 for $100 range and likely the last of the two for this year. Canada also regularly releases similar face-value coins at other prices like $20, $50, and even $200. Other mints, particularly the Royal Mint in Britain have also embraced the concept.
This latest design by artist Laurene Spino is a superb one, keeping up the generally high standard of these coins. Cleanly struck and carrying the denomination, date and issuer on the reverse face, the image of three Muskox pacing towards you is an unusual viewpoint, but a pretty effective one. The obverse, like all Royal Canadian Mint coins carries the Susanna Blunt effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, the weakest such effigy of the monarch in our view. Coming in a nicely adorned box, the coin obviously sells for $100 CAD and is available to order now from the RCM e-store. There is a limit of three per household and only to US and Canadian buyers. As usual, it’s fairly easy for international buyers to pick one up from independent dealers and from EBay should they wish. With the Canadian Dollar being quite weak at the time of writing, it’s a good time to acquire one.
