The second coin in the Royal Canadian Mints exciting new 2014 pure gold O Canada series (focusing on iconic Canadian images) salutes that most Canadian of wildlife symbols, the moose. The second coin in the Royal Canadian Mints exciting 2014 pure gold O Canada series showcases the moose! This series features iconic images celebrating all that makes Canada unique. This coin was masterfully crafted by Royal Canadian Mint engravers using a variety of engraving techniques and finishes to bring depth and texture to this stunning image of Canadian wildlife.
This coin presents a piece of Canadas natural beauty, painstakingly captured in 1/10 oz. This coin was designed by Canadian artist Claudio DAngelo. It presents a full-body profile portrait of a moose in its natural habitat. Despite its seeming ungainliness, here we see the moose moving with grace through its environment. Viewed from its left side, the tall creature is presented to stunning effect, its massive rack of antlers raised proudly as it walks along the shoreline of a northern waterway.
Its large round snout, dangling dewlap, powerful neck and shoulders, and sleek musculature are evoked in dimensional detail by Royal Canadian Mint engravers. Three of its tall legs are partially submerged in the water below, its right hind leg raised above the water line as the moose steps forward. The water splashes gently before its quiet step. Water lilies line the foreground, while behind the moose we see a rocky, bush-lined shore giving way to a distant coniferous forest. Each coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell case protected by a custom beauty box.
Are also available for an additional charge. All of the coins offered in this listing are unsearched. Many coin dealers search all coins when they are received from the Mint. They "cherry-pick" the best coins. Then submit them to be graded, certified, and slabbed by PCGS, NGC, ANACS, etc.When a dealer searches coins, those that they sell in original Mint packaging are only lesser quality coins. Photos: When a listing offers multiples of the same coin, one coin is picked at random and photographed. Since all coins offered in that listing are essentially identical, the coin photographed is representative of all coins offered. Surface areas that appear black on some proof coin photos are actually highly polished, mirror-bright metal reflecting the color of the camera. We often include proof coin photos with the coin slightly tilted to better depict the mirror bright surfaces.
However, tilting the coin may resulting one side being slightly out of focus. Whenever possible, we use actual photos of our coins, rather than just stock artwork from the Mint. We frequently update and upgrade the photos that appear with our listings, using improved cameras and lenses and better lighting. We will honor your requests for additional photos as quickly as our schedule permits.The item "Canada 2014 $5 The Moose 1/10 oz. 9999 Pure Gold Proof Coin O Canada Series #2" is in sale since Friday, April 25, 2014.
