The Call of the Wild Series from the Royal Canadian Mint began in 2015. This series offers collectors 1 oz and 1/10 oz gold coins featuring beautiful depictions of Canadian wildlife. One unique aspect of the coins in this series is that they are extremely pure. These are some of the only coins in the world that contain .99999 pure gold. Right now, you can purchase the 2016 Canadian Growling Cougar 1/10 oz Gold Coin from Provident Metals.


  • Coins arrive in mint-sealed protective plastic assay cards!
  • 2nd coin in the Call of the Wild Series from RCM!
  • Each coin contains 1/10 Troy oz of .99999 pure gold.
  • Coins are all in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
  • Obverse bears the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.
  • Reverse showcases a growling cougar in all of its glory.

The Call of the Wild Series coins all have a few similarities. One is that every coin has wavy lines in the design field meant to mimic the soundwaves each animal produces when it unleashes its call. All reverse designs are created by Pierre LeDuc, who was also responsible for the reverse designs in the Canadian Wildlife Coin Series that ran from 2011 to 2013. You can see his initials in the waves on the coins.


The obverse design on these coins features the right-profile image of Queen Elizabeth II. As the fourth-generation effigy of Her Majesty, it has been featured on Canadian coinage since 2003. It is just the second effigy designed for Canadian coinage that was created by a Canadian artist. This artist is Susanna Blunt.


A growling cougar can be found on the reverse face of these coins. You will see only the upper torso and head of the cougar, but its open mouth serves as a warning sign to predators and prey it may come across. The cougars sharp teeth are very visible in this image.


The Royal Canadian Mint was founded in 1908 to create coinage for Canada. The RCM is the official sovereign mint of Canada.


These extraordinarily pure gold coins are now available at Provident Metals in BU condition. These coins ship in special plastic assay cards for their own protection. All orders ship in discreet packaging in order to protect your investment during the shipping process.
