What’s so cool about the 2012 Canadian Silver Cougar Mint State (MS70)?
Entering its second year of production, the Canadian Wildlife Series features reverse designs that are representative of Canada’s wildlife. Each year, the Royal Canadian Mint will release two annual issues from this highly anticipated series through 2013.
The coin’s reverse depicts a Canadian Cougar with its mouth agape and front paws balanced on the branch of a fallen tree. The image of this robust and powerful creature was designed by William Woodrufff, the Royal Canadian Mint’s Senior Engraver and designer of the 2011 Canadian Grizzly’s reverse.
Acclaimed Canadian portrait artist Susanna Blunt designed the coin’s obverse which features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Struck from one ounce of 99.99% pure silver, this coins bears the face value of $5 and is part of an extremely limited mintage. The next issue of the six-coin Canadian Wildlife series will not be announced until next year.
The Royal Canadian Mint is exclusively responsible for the production and distribution of these coins and has placed a strict, low mintage on them. The demand for these pure silver coins has been unprecedented in Europe and the rest of the world. If previous issues of this coin are any indication, the Silver Canadian Cougar will sell out very fast, making your ownership of one (or more) even more impressive.
