In 2014, the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) introduced the .99999 Gold 'Call of the Wild' bullion coin series.
The coin is the purest 'five 9s' gold bullion coin on the market.
Its reverse side features iconic wildlife that inhabits the Canadian wilderness.
One important, but often overlooked fact about the coin is that its curved lines found on the reverse of every coin represent the sound waves of each animal's 'Call of the Wild.'
In addition, each coin features the Maple Leaf Security Mark.
In 2013, the RCM introduced the use of the micro-laser engraved security mark on the 1 oz. Gold Maple Leaf bullion coin, which helps to make the coins extremely hard to counterfeit.
Since 2014, the Royal Canadian Mint has been putting the security mark on all of its precious metal 1 oz. bullion coins.
Below is a description of the first coin released in the Canadian Call of the Wild .99999 Gold Bullion Coin Series - 2014's The Howling Wolf.
The obverse side of the Canadian .99999 Gold Call of the Wild Bullion Coin displays the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Susanna Blunt.
Her initials "SB," are located at the top of the Queen's shoulder.
The Queen's name "ELIZABETH II" is found around the perimeter of the gold coin.
Also inscribed along the perimeter of the gold bullion coin is its face value of "200 DOLLARS" and 'Year of Issue.'
Its $200 face value is the highest value legal tender among the world's 1 oz. gold bullion coins.
In 2016, the Royal Canadian Mint added D, G, REGINA to the perimeter of the gold bullion coin.
The new inscription stands for "Dei gratia regina," which is a Latin title meaning "By the Grace of God, Queen."
The Edge of the gold bullion coin is Reeded.
The reverse side of the first issue of the Canadian .99999 Gold 'Call of the Wild' bullion coin was the Howling Wolf which displays an image of a gray wolf.
The curved lines behind the gray wolf represent the sound waves of the animal's 'Call of the Wild.'
Inscribed along the top of the gold bullion coin is "CANADA."
At the bottom of the gold bullion coin is "FINE GOLD, 99999, 1 OZ, OR PUR" representing the coin's Fineness in the English and French languages.
Lastly, artist Pierre Leduc has designed each of animals for the reverse side of the gold bullion coin, his initials 'PL' can be found somewhere on the lower half of each of the coins.
In 2013, the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) started to add a Security Mark to the the reverse side of the 1oz. Canadian Gold Maple Leaf bullion coin.
The 1oz. .99999 Call of the Wild gold bullion coin has had the security mark on its reverse side since 2014.
The RCM's security mark is a Micro-Engraved Maple Leaf design produced by the Mint’s use of laser technology.
Inside of the laser engraved maple leaf is the numeral indicating the year the coin was issued, which is more easily visible under magnification.
Another security feature of the Canadian .99999 Gold Call of the Wild Bullion Coin is its credit card-style packaging, which includes a certificate of purity signed by the Mint's Chief Assayer.
