For centuries, the most feared land animal on the North American continent has been the grizzly bear. Even today with modern firearms, mankind is no match for the grizzly bear if caught unprepared to fight back. The power and majesty of this beast is captured perfectly on the third and final Call of the Wild coin from the Royal Canadian Mint.
Call of the Wild is a brand-new gold bullion series from the Royal Canadian Mint that is breaking all the barriers. All three coins in this bullion series feature a stunning gold content of 99.999% pure gold, the highest level of purity in any gold coin.
Each coin in the series has featured one of Canadas most fearsome predators in a pose that demonstrates the vocal prowess of the animal. In the case of the Roaring Grizzly coin, Canadas apex predator is featured with its massive jaws agape as its lets out a booming roar. Grizzly bears are Canadas second-largest land-based carnivore, and there is no natural threat to this bear once it reaches maturity.
Royal Canadian Mint coins are struck either at the original facility in Ottawa, founded in 1908, or the more-recent Winnipeg facility which was built in 1980 to expand production capacity for RCM.
