The 2017-dated, “Elk” is the newest coin in the Mint’s 99.999% pure gold bullion “Call of the Wild” series. Its $200 denomination represents the highest value legal tender among the world’s 1 oz. gold bullion coins. The coin’s reverse is designed by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc, who has boldly illustrated a majestic elk, backed by lines representing the sound waves of his distinct bugle. This gold bullion coin is presented in richly designed credit card-style packaging which includes a certificate of purity signed by the Mint’s Chief Assayer. The coin will also be produced to demand.

Both these coins feature the addition of a micro-engraved maple leaf mint mark for enhanced security.

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.
