Product Details

The Royal Canadian Mint has placed a strict and low mintage on these Wildlife Series coins. With the unprecedented demand of these gorgeous .9999 fine Silver coins in Europe and the rest of the world, these Cougar coins will sell out very fast! The Canadian Cougar coin is the third coin released in the Royal Canadian Mint's three year long "Canadian Wildlife Coin Series" program. The obverse of the coin bears the Susanna Blunt designed likeness of Queen Elizabeth II with a $5 CAN face value. The reverse shows a powerful cougar with mouth open in a show of strength. This coin is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition!

Orders in multiples of 25 will be packaged in mint tubes. All others will be packaged in individual plastic flips.

I like these coins because they are strange. If you really look at them, it looks like they made a too small cougar, and then retouched the engraving to make it bigger. Cover the lower jaw and it still looks just like a smaller cougar head. The placement of the tree branches and giant feet are also starnge. I think some day this will be the most valuable of the set. To me, it screams "I never should have been minted".

I love the Canadian Wildlife Series as all the designs are highly attractive. However, the Cougar coin that I received could have been in much better condition considering the high premium over the spot price. Mine had numerous nicks and abrasions along the edge of the coin. Usually the coins I order from APMEX are in top quality, but this one was definitely lacking.

          Started out with a plan to complete a basic bullion collection of SMLs (BU). But once I got started, I fell in love with Canadian 38mm coins. Really love this series. awesome that I was able to find all 6 in this series at APMEX... no hunting, one order! Arrived in near perfect condition.

                  I purchased this coin because it was part of the Wildlife Series from the Royal Canadian Mint. The design is really nice and I like the .9999 silver and lower mintage. The only downside in my view is that there could have been more contrast in finishes. A very attractive coin for any collector.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  APMEX did its usual good job in managing this purchase.

                      The coin was delivered in 4 days was exactly as Apmex had stated. A very good series of coin from our neighbors to the north. Great job Apmex!

                                        Very Nice Coin for price. Can Get a cheaper 1oz. Coin but worth the extra 3 to 4 Bucks.
