The history of the Growling Cougar Canadian coins
In 2007, the Royal Canadian Mint produced the world’s first .99999 fine Gold bullion coin – and remains the only mint to produce a coin with this purity. The Growling Cougar Canadian coins are part of a series of .99999 fine Gold bullion coins featuring wild animals, including the howling wolf and the roaring grizzly bear. While these Gold coins are impressive, no one can deny that the 100 kilogram .99999 fine Gold Maple Leaf bullion coin the mint created is perhaps the most impressive Gold coin ever minted. The Royal Canadian Mint only produced five of these huge and record-setting Gold coins with a $1 million face value.
