Tavex is pleased to present the 2018 Canadian Golden Eagle gold coin, a worldwide hallmark of exceptional artisanship and purity. Issued by the Royal Canadian Mint, this coin is crafted in 99.999% pure gold, the highest standard in the world today. Golden Eagle is the fifth gold bullion coin in the Royal Canadian Mint’s Call of the Wild series. This unique bullion coin is a remarkable allegorical interpretation of Canada’s untamed yet beautiful wilderness and will thus be a cherished piece in anyone’s portfolio or coin collection.
The coin is embellished with the striking image of the golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos), one of Canada's most powerful and largest birds of prey. Golden eagles have a particular tendency for silence, the bird's high and shrill voice can be heard through nestling period. The rhythmic resonance emitted from eagle's gorge is portrayed as curved lines in the background of the coin.
The golden eagles are considered the best fliers among eagles and although the plumage is primarily dark brown, the golden eagle is named for its gleaming feathers, which shine brighter than ever on the reverse of this 99.999 % pure gold bullion coin. The Golden Eagle bullion coin is struck in a proof-like condition with exceptionally brilliant surfaces and enhanced engraved areas that reinforce the realistic likeness of the eagle's feathers.
Established in 1908, the Royal Canadian Mint has in the past couple of decades been one of the market leaders in applying new technologies in the production of gold and silver bullion coins. Not only did it create the first legal tender silver and gold bullion coins that contained a purity of four nines, they went one step further in 1998 with the introduction of a special edition gold bullion coin that contained 1.02233 troy ounces of 99.999% (five nines) pure gold. The mint’s quest in perfecting high purity gold coins did not stop at the one-ounce weight mark. In fact, it reached new heights in 2007 by unveiling a Gold Maple Leaf coin that weighed 100 kilograms, had a gold purity of .99999, and came with a face value of one million Canadian dollars.
In 2014 the Royal Canadian Mint set a new standard in coin security with the introduction of its latest innovation called “Bullion DNA Anti-Counterfeiting Technology” which includes a process where a unique microscopic security mark is minted onto every coin. The centre of the security mark contains the number “14” (for the year 2014) and is only visible under strong magnification. This new technology adds another layer of protection against counterfeiting, and all Gold Maple Leaf coins minted from 2014 onwards will contain this new security feature.
The obverse portrays the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The reason for picturing Her Majesty the Queen stems from Canada’s membership of the United Kingdom’s Commonwealth of Nations. By being a member of the Commonwealth, Canada has Queen Elizabeth II as its reigning constitutional monarch. Around the Queen’s effigy is her name “ELIZABETH II”, the year of the mintage, text "D.G. REGINA", and inscribed at the bottom of the coin is the nominal face value of 200 dollars.
The reverse depicts a golden eagle with curved lines in the background of the coin to portray the rhythmic resonance emitted from eagle's gorge. The eagle is surrounded by the text “CANADA” and “FINE GOLD 1 OZ OR PUR”, where the latter part of the sentence means “1 ounce of pure gold”. The coin features the initials PL of the artist Pierre Leduc and a micro-engraved maple leaf laser mark in the coin’s field. In the centre of the mark, visible under magnification is the numeral "18", denoting the coin’s year of issue.
The coin is encapsulated and sealed in a Royal Canadian Mint's tamper-proof assay card. The surface of this card is shiny and styled with golden maple leaves over a black background.
