It's always great to catch up with our friends at Universal Coin & Bullion, the Offical Rare Coin & Bullion Dealer of the NRA. From their sponsorship of NRA Competitive Shooting events like the National Pistol Championships at Camp Perry or the NRA Bianchi Cup, to their involvement in NRA's Guns & Gold, UCB is dedicated to promoting the programs of the NRA. Their coins, including the Silver Cougar are wildly popular with numismatists and NRA members alike. So when President Michael Fuljenz let me know about the release of the newest coin in the Royal Canadian Mint’s Wildlife Silver Coin series, I couldn't wait to share it with our readers:
Official Bullion & Rare Coin Dealer of the NRA, Universal Coin and Bullion, Announces the Release of the New Wildlife Silver Bullion Coin, the Majestic Moose
Universal Coin & Bullion and President Michael Fuljenz are pleased to announce that the popular Canadian Wildlife 99.99% pure one-ounce silver bullion coin series has just added the fourth coin in the series. The fourth coin in the Royal Canadian Mint’s Wildlife Silver Coin series is a tribute to the moose: Canada's largest land animal.
“This latest addition to the Canadian Mint's pure silver bullion collection was launched February 3rd at the World Money Fair in Berlin, Germany before a premier gathering of the world's mints, distributors and buyers and we’re excited to offer the fourth coin in the silver bullion coin series to our customers,” said Fuljenz.
The Royal Canadian Mint will produce up to one million "Moose" silver bullion coins and will release at least two more special issues by early 2013. A total of six different species of Canada’s and North America’s legendary wildlife will be depicted on 99.99% pure fine silver bullion coins, the most pure silver coin series Universal Coin & Bullion has ever offered.
“Clients nationwide have acquired the previous three silver bullion coins from this series and the demand for the “Moose” is expected to continue with high demand for the whole series of six silver coins expected," said Mike Fuljenz. "This Silver Wildlife bullion coin series has been a huge success with investors and collectors and we are excited that the enthusiastic response to these coins proves that the quality, design, purity and relative rarity of each coin in this series has collectors and investors waiting for each coin in this high demand series."
The "Moose" silver bullion coin is struck from one troy ounce of 99.99% pure silver and has a face value of $5. The design of a majestic creature which rules Canada's forests from Newfoundland to the Pacific Coast has been illustrated on the reverse of this coin by Senior Mint Engraver William Woodruff. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, created in 2003 by Canadian portrait artist Susanna Blunt.
The 2012 Canadian Mint Silver Moose bullion coin is now available and the next issue in this acclaimed six-coin silver wildlife series will be announced later this year.
