RCM continues bullion series with ‘grizzly’ theme on latest pure silver piece

The fearsome grizzly bear is featured on the newest one-ounce pure silver “Predator” coin from the Royal Canadian Mint’s ongoing bullion series.

This coin, which is now shipping to the Mint’s network of official bullion distributors, launched earlier this week at the opening of the American Numismatic Association’s 2019 World’s Fair of Money in Chicago.

“The Mint has a long history of showcasing its innovative collector and investment products at the World’s Fair of Money, the most important annual gathering of numismatists and coin dealers in North America,” said Marie Lemay, Mint president and CEO.

“By announcing our ‘Grizzly’ pure silver ‘Predator Series’ bullion coin at this forum, we are giving customers yet another exciting way to discover the purity, quality and security behind all of our industry-leading bullion coins.”

The coin’s obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.

The 2019-dated “Grizzly” is the fourth one-ounce, 99.99 per cent silver bullion coin from the Mint’s “Predator” series. This reverse design features the dynamic engraving of a lunging grizzly contrasted against a background of precise radial lines. Mint engravers brought artist Emily Damstra’s design to life with finishes accenting the details and animation of the grizzly. The reverse also features the Mint’s well-known micro-engraved maple leaf security feature.

The obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II created in 2003 by Canadian portrait artist Susanna Blunt.

This new silver bullion coin will soon be available through the Mint’s extensive network of bullion distributors. In keeping with a distribution model common to the world’s major issuers of bullion coins, the Mint does not sell bullion directly to the public. Interested buyers are encouraged to contact a reputable bullion dealer to order Royal Canadian Mint bullion coins.
