The coin’s obverse shows a portrait of Queen Elizabeth with a glossy finish set against a matte-finish textured background. The Queen’s name of “ELIZABETH II” appears towards the top, while the coin’s denomination of $10 Canadian Dollars and the date 2014 are inscribed at the bottom.
On the reverse, an arctic fox is shown mid-stance in a typical Canadian wildlife scene. The coin’s country of origin is engraved at the top. Towards the bottom, the coin’s purity of .9999 fine gold and the weight of 1/4 oz are featured. In keeping with the Canadian policy of bilingualism, both the words “FINE GOLD” and “OR PUR” are displayed.
When investors think of RCM gold bullion coins, items like the Maple Leaf come to mind first. However, the Royal Canadian Mint sometimes issues special limited-edition bullion pieces. In recent years, for example, Canada has released a line of 1/4 oz gold coins featuring arctic wildlife. Much like a 1/4 oz Maple Leaf, these coins are struck in .9999 fine gold and are sealed in protective “flex” packaging. They boast the same weight, purity, content, face value, and government guarantee as the Maple. However there is one major difference: availability. Whereas Gold Maples can be located with ease, these arctic wildlife coins surface in the marketplace very infrequently.
These 2014 1/4 oz Gold Arctic Fox coins are part of this limited wildlife series. They offer collectors and investors a beautiful way of owning high-quality fractional gold at a low premium. They offer many of the benefits and advantages of a 1/4 oz Gold Maple Leaf coin at an even more cost-effective rate.
Each coin will be delivered in its original RCM “flex-wrap” plastic packaging for easy inspection and storage.
