At 99.999% purity - the highest recognized level of gold, the Bellowing Elk coin is rendered in exquisite detail by the Royal Canadian Mint engravers. The coin is the fourth coin in the annual limited edition bullion series 'Call of the Wild'.
Intricately micro-engraved Security Feature in the form of a textured maple leaf design produced by the Mint's innovative use of laser technology helps to confirm the authenticity of the coin. The coins in this series have the highest face value ($200 CAN) of any legal tender 1oz bullion coin.
Known for its towering antlers, this “crowned” prince of the wild is largely found in western Canada, with some populations scattered across the Prairie Provinces and in different parts of Ontario. The elk typically lives in a single-sex grouping, with cows, calves and younger bulls forming a summer herd while mature bulls form separate groups. But once the rut begins, the mature bull sets out to establish a harem using its distinctive cry to attract potential mates. Should a rival bellow a challenge, a show of force ensues: both parties engage in mirroring to seize up one another’s strength, and the tension builds until there’s a retreat or a clash of antlers, the outcome of which ultimately determines dominance.
