A world leader in producing high-quality coins and bars, the Royal Canadian Mint was founded in 1908. They are most admired for their iconic Canadian Maple Leaf coin series but are also responsible for many breathtaking depictions of North America’s natural wonders and wildlife.

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.

This series is absolutely stunning

By  Mike

from CO

5.0

Buying this series meant paying a bit more premium than I would normally like but the premium isn't too bad compared to the normal maple leafs. What you get for the extra money is a nice assay card and a truly stunning coin (the RCM products are just infinitely higher quality than those from the US Mint) that instantly turns an investment into a collection. Also the premium is easily recovered when selling because of the high demand for this series.

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Easy to Sell
  • Mint Condition

Very beautiful, very pure

By  WS

from San Francisco, CA

5.0

Beautiful coin, with an amazing 99.999% purity. Some info about the assay card that may be of interest: the coin sits nicely in a capsule in the card. The capsule can be opened without having to break or damage the card. It is like a two-piece air tight container with one part fused to the entire card and the other part being the round transparent lid. So the coin is not sealed in but can be removed and placed back at will.

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)

The "assay card" is shoddy at best.

By  Charley

from Texas

2.0

I had to send the product back twice for poor condition of the capsule in the card and the card itself had air bubbles between the card itself and the plastic film covering it on the second return. The capsules on the two returned were cracked, over glued, stressed and not closed tight. They looked like they were tampered with. I received my third and it has several air bubbles and loose spots of plastic film over the card. My advice, wait for a coin to come up for sale without the assay card and save some money. The coin is beautiful and I have to give APMEX credit for continuing to try to send an acceptable product. My guess on the air bubbles and film separation could be the colder temps during delivery or poor materials used by the mint. I will not be purchasing any coins in assay cards done at the Royal Canadian Mint in the future.

Many choose Canadian coins as a regular investment alongside stocks and bonds.

When buying Canadian coins, it is important to consider an investment strategy that best fits your goals. Typically when purchasing Gold coins, investors look at holding the physical asset for 3-5 years or more. They know Royal Canadian Mint coins and other bullion coins will hold steady as inflation hits or other investments like stocks and bonds falter. Typically, these investors add Gold coins to their portfolio equally with other investments at regular intervals for a balanced approach called dollar cost averaging.
