A Coin That Rocks… Gilded in Gold!

 

For centuries, European explorers sought to find a sea route from the Northern Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean along the northern coast of North America. Instead of a viable route, however, they discovered a harsh, frozen and barren landscape with few natural landmarks. Long before those pioneers braved Canada’s arctic tundra, the native Inuit people had crisscrossed the continent and left markers to show the way. Built of stones gathered from the rocky terrain, these monuments not only serve as points of reference, but are of deep cultural significance to the Inuit people.

 

To pay tribute to these iconic landmarks, the Royal Canadian Mint in 2018 released a limited edition commemorative silver coin that was sumptuously gilded in gleaming gold. Struck in one ounce of highly pure 99.99% silver, the $20 legal-tender coin features an image of an Inuit stone monument or “inukshuk” that one might see at Enukso Point on Baffin island, a Canadian National Historic Site that is home to more than 100 inukshuks.

 

Your 2018 Canada Iconic Inukshuk One-Ounce Silver Gilded Proof will come in gorgeous Proof condition, meaning it was expertly crafted by the mint from hand-selected planchets, polished dies and multiple strikes to produce beautifully frosted details rising over mirror-like fields. It will be shipped in official mint packaging and accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity.

 

With a strict maximum worldwide edition limit of just 5,000, you could be left out in the cold if you don’t act now. Click one to your cart today!
