First in a new series of .99999 pure gold animal portraits! Order today!

It is sleek, strong and surprisingly secretive. Canada's largest big cat is more common in our western regions, where forest cover keeps it hidden from view. The cougar's big paws—as seen on this coin—allow it to climb, prowl and pounce, while its stealth and agility help it go undetected by its prey until it's too late. Captured in the highest standard of gold purity (99.999% or five 9s), our new annual series offers a glimpse of a wild and untamed Canada. Each of these Canadian Wildlife Portraits is a close encounter with a large animal in the wild—a natural work of art that has been lovingly brought to life with exceptionally detailed engraving.

Design:

This $350 coin is 99.999% pure gold, with a diameter of 34 millimetres and a nominal metal weight of 35 grams. The reverse design by Canadian artist Denis Meyer Jr. features a cougar (Puma concolor) resting on a tree branch as it scans the horizon for signs of danger or prey. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Cougars use their paws and claws to trip and grab their prey. I felt it was important to display this big cat's powerful paws, even as it rests among the trees.Denis Mayer Jr.: Artist

Did you know…
  • Puma concolor has a large range that extends from the Yukon-British Columbia border to the southern tip of Argentina. Because of this, the species is known by many names, including mountain lion, panther and puma.
  • The cougar's front legs are smaller than its hind legs, but its front paws (armed with retractable claws) are big and powerful enough to hold down its favourite prey: deer.
  • This master of camouflage hunts alone, and usually between dusk and dawn. It doesn't chase its prey—instead, it stalks its target before pouncing and delivering a fatal bite to the neck.

Packaging:

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box.
