This stunning new full three-dimensional Cougar coin is part of the most revolutionary coin series ever issued by the Royal Canadian Mint. Since the first coins of the world were struck more than 2500 years ago, coin designs have been confined to two-dimensional coin blanks and the limited relief of traditional minting. With this new series, the Royal Canadian Mint brings some of Canada's most iconic animals to life with a full three-dimensional sculpture rising up from the surface of the coin. The striking 3D cougar is further enhanced by an overlay of 24 karat gold. In addition to its artistic beauty, collectability of this revolutionary coin is further heightened by an extremely low limited mintage of just 1,200 pieces.As a pure silver coin produced by the Royal Canadian Mint, there is no HST/GST applicable. The Design: The coin features the sleek and graceful Cougar as she slinks close to the ground stalking her prey. Renowned Canadian sculptor Karl Lansing captures a remarkable 360 degree image of strength and beauty in this unique sculpture, brilliantly doubling as one of the most innovative coins ever produced in the world. Your coin will come presented on a round wooden pedestal and protected by a domed cover that allows the coin to be proudly displayed as a work of art. The coin features the sleek and graceful Cougar as she slinks close to the ground stalking her prey. ABOUT CANADIAN COIN & CURRENCY.
