2016 Canada 10 Dollar Silver Wildlife Arctic Fox NGC PF70UCAM Early Release
The Perfect Coin for Survivors
Few climates on the planet are as foreboding as the Canadian arctic. Its frigid temperatures have claimed countless people’s lives throughout the centuries, as the brave and reckless alike have succumbed to its extreme cold and harsh landscape. In such harsh conditions, it is only the strong and cunning that survive, and the Arctic fox meets both of those criteria in spades. Hunting for lemmings in the snow, picking at the remains left by polar bear kills, and hunting birds, fish, and eggs, this unique creature must travel long distances just to sustain itself. Adaptability is build in by nature as well, as it is the only dog whose coat changes dramatically with the seasons, from a white coat that offers warmth and camouflage in winter to a short, brown coat that is much cooler in summer. Whether you consider yourself a survivor or you simply admire them, this 2016 Silver Wildlife Arctic Fox is for you.
- LAST COIN IN THE ”REFLECTIONS OF WILDLIFE” SERIES – This coin concluded a three coin Reflections of Wildlife series, which feature coins that include both images and reflections of Canadian wildlife.
- STUNNING PROOF FINISH – Struck from 1/2-oz of 99.99% fine silver at the Royal Canadian Mint, this Arctic Fox coin has a proof finish that accentuates its design beautifully. It is especially fitting in its complementing of the reflectivity of the water, where the fox sees its reflection.
- CANADA LEGAL TENDER -- Each 2016 Silver Arctic Fox Proof is $10 Canadian legal tender, as shown under Susanna Blunt’s portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. In addition to being home to one of the world’s elite mints, which produces countless series for a wide range of collectors, Canada is home to breathtaking scenery, which includes endless forests, deep blue lakes, and stunning shorelines.
- CERTFFIIED FLAWLESS -- Your coin will be certified Proof-70 Ultra Cameo (PF70UC) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), a distinction that means your perfectly-graded proof will have ZERO imperfections -- showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended!
- A LIMITED MINTAGE – Only 15,000 pieces were released in this mintage.
Many coin collectors view their collections as reflections of themselves. For those who like to think of themselves as survivors, people who can overcome any challenge no matter how severe, it is difficult to imagine a better coin than this 2016 Silver Wildlife Arctic Fox Proof. The animal thrives in some of the world’s most challenging terrain, at once eluding predators, finding and catching prey, and keeping itself warm enough during frigid winters to last another year. While the Arctic Fox may be a survivor, our supply of this coin will not endure all, so order yours at GovMint.com while you still can!
