To view an elk or wapiti (Cervus canadensis) in the wild is to catch a glimpse of one of Canada's most majestic animal species. Armed with impressive antlers that give it a stately air, the elk moves through the wilderness with a steady, confident gait as it browses for the vegetation that sustains it throughout the seasons. With this colored fine silver coin, the Royal Canadian Mint celebrates this wild animal species - one that delights wildlife watchers and contributes to Canada's rich biodiversity.
Over half of Canada's total elk population can be found in British Columbia, with a sizable population found in the mountainous foothills and boreal forests of Alberta. Elk are capable of adapting to a range of landscapes, from marshes to river flats and even semi-arid regions. As partial migrants, they move with the seasons through areas that fall within the boundaries of what they consider to be their home. Range - whether this consists of only a few square kilometers or several hundred. An impressive addition to any nature-, wilderness-, or Canadiana -themed collection!
The use of selective coloring enhances the finely detailed engraving and showcases the elk's natural coloring against the rich, green colors of the boreal forest. Crafted in 99.99% pure silver with limited mintage, this coin makes a beautiful gift! This timeless portrait of an elk in its natural habitat captures the beauty and majesty of both the western Canadian wilderness and a majestic animal species that is part of Canada's rich biodiversity.
Highly detailed engraving, a multi-finish background, and the use of color combine to bring depth and texture to a design that exemplifies the outstanding artistry and craftsmanship for which the Royal Canadian Mint is internationally renowned. For our Canadian customers, this coin is GST/HST exempt.Designed by Canadian artist Maurade Baynton, this coin features a striking portrait of an elk, rendered in exquisite detail through expert engraving and selective color. The majestic, tan-colored elk stands tall in an open grassland area at the edge of a boreal forest that is resplendent in the green colors of summer. Perhaps hearing a call from a nearby herd or the warning sound of birds suddenly taking flight, the elk's head is turned to its right as it lifts its gaze upward to the sky; this allows the viewer to glimpse its beautiful facial features in side profile, along with the long, darker-colored mane that covers the elk's neck. Its distinctive, wide antlers are prominently displayed in the centre of the image field, where they seem every bit as majestic as the rugged mountain peaks seen in the engraved background. Each coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell protected by a graphic beauty box. Unsearched 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. Whenever possible, we use actual photos of our coins, rather than just artists conception drawings 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 2015 $20 Majestic Elk 1 oz. 99.99% Pure Silver Color Proof Coin" is in sale since Thursday, June 18, 2015.
