Wild Canada is a six-coin series of reverse proof Canadian Maple Leaf coins from the Royal Canadian Mint that relives the brilliance and beauty of the Canadian Wildlife Series. That original series ran from 2011 to 2013, and featured six different native species of Canada and North America. This coin is modeled after 2012 1 oz Canadian Silver Cougar Coin.
Now, the 2017 1 oz Cougar Privy Canadian Silver Maple Leaf Reverse Proof coin is available at JM Bullion as purchased directly from the Royal Canadian Mint. Each of the privy marked coins of the Wild Canada Series combines the official bullion coin, the Canadian Maple Leaf, with small emblems from the original Canadian Wildlife Series. Each animal will appear in the order it was originally released, with the cougar appearing third overall and first in its release year.
The obverse of all Wild Canada Canadian Silver Maple Leaf reverse proof coins features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Captured by Susanna Blunt, Her Majesty’s profile appears along with engravings of the Queen’s name, the year of issue, and the face value of the coin.
On the reverse of the 2017 1 oz Cougar Privy Canadian Silver Maple Leaf is the image of the sugar maple leaf, along with a small cougar privy to the lower left. Additional markings on this side include the nation of issue, purity, metal content, and weight of the coin.
All Wild Canada Canadian Maple Leaf coins are in reverse proof. This indicates proof coins with a mirrored finish on the design sets, offset by a contrasting deeply frosted, matte finish to the background fields.
