2018 Canada 20 Dollar 1-oz Silver Mettlesome Mountain Goat Proof
Let Canada’s Mountain Goat Dance from a Rocky Ledge Into Your Collection
The image most people have of a seasoned mountaineer is one of a rugged individual equipped with crampons, glare-reducing sunglasses, ice axes, harnesses, helmet, carabiners, lanyards and ropes. But for Canada’s most accomplished mountaineers all you’ll see them outfitted in is a thick woolly coat. Surprised? Don’t be, we’re talking about a Canada’s nimble-footed mountain goat – the latest addition to the Royal Canadian Mint’s Majestic Wildlife coin series.
The third and final coin in the series, the large 38 mm coin is struck in pure 99.99% silver and shows a Mettlesome Mountain Goat deftly dancing along an outcropping in Canada’s wilderness mountains. The coin seems to take on a life of its own with the selective addition of color. In combination with the coin’s mirror proof fields, the colorization on the mountain goat, rocks and trees gives this piece a stunning 3D effect. It’s a work of art in pure silver!
Canada’s mountain goat is more than meets the eye. Oh sure, it has hooves that would make it seem like it would slide right off the rocks it calls home, but those hooves actually have two flexible toes that are squeezed together or spread apart to provide solid footing on even the most perilous surfaces. These natural climbers actually spend three-quarters of their lives on steep rocky ledges – some as steep as 60-degrees. With their thick hair they can withstand almost any element Mother Nature throws at them and their almost inaccessible habitat makes them difficult prey for predators like bears, wolves and cougars.
You don’t have to climb the highest mountain to catch a glimpse of this Mountain Goat —just add it to your cart today and you’ll soon have one of nature’s most skilled mountaineers to call your very own!
