The new coin features Queen Elizabeth on one side and a bull elk standing proudly in front of its natural Canadian habitat on the other. It is composed of 99.99 percent pure silver, measures approximately an inch and a half in diameter (40 millimeters) and weighs 1.2 ounces (31.83 grams). It also features a serrated edge and a matte proof finish.
Interestingly enough, the mint produced only 30,000 of them—the lowest level in a series that dates back to 2013. Previous wildlife featured in the collection include bison, grizzly, bald eagle, bighorn sheep, horse, muskox, cougar and orca.
The elk coin is sold at its legal tender face value of $100 (Canadian) or about $76 (U.S.). Find more information here.
