Officially launched at the World Money Fair in Berlin in 2012, the "Moose" Silver Coin is the fourth in the series of six coins depicting different species of Canadian wildlife with a limited release of only 1 million coins – making them 30 times more rare than the American Silver Eagle. Each of these brilliant and uncirculated coins is produced in one Troy ounce of .9999 fine silver bullion and is among the purest bullion coins available today.
Bearing a denomination of $5 CAN, they can serve as legal tender and this fine coin is likely to increase in value in the coming years.
The reverse design of the latest release features the depiction of a majestic moose with its mature set of antlers by Senior Mint Engraver William Woodruff. The moose, Canada's largest land mammal and ruler of its forests, gazing toward the west, fills the top of the coin.
Inscriptions include "Canada", "Fine Silver 1 oz Argent Pur", and "9999".
The obverse design of the coin features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II designed by portrait artist Susanna Blunt.
