According to the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) some scientists estimate that between 200 and 2,000 species go extinct every year.

In effort to combat these troubling numbers, collectors can raise awareness to the many wonderful species of animals that are fighting to survive by welcoming a new series into their collection.

2017 Canada Endangered Animal Cutout – Woodland Caribou Silver Proof $30 GEM Proof (Original Government Packaging)

The Royal Canadian Mint is proud to introduce their Endangered Animal Cutout series. Beginning with the Woodland Caribou, this new series hopes to shed light on some of their at-risk indigenous species. This is also the first-ever Canadian coin to feature a cutout!

ModernCoinMart (MCM) is proud to carry both raw and certified variations of this socially responsible coin. Collectors and lovers of Canadian wildlife can select GEM Proof coins with their original Mint packaging in addition to PF69 UC or PF70 UC coins that have been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation and given the Early Releases designation.

Great Migrations – Humpback Whale

Magnificent Humpback whales feature on the new coin in the Great Migrations collection

The Great Migrations – Humpback Whale 1 oz Silver Coin features in this exciting collection which celebrates one of nature’s most impressive wonders, when populations of animals start their great annual migration, covering vast distances in search for food, mating partners or shelter. 

Great Migrations – Humpback Whale 1 oz Silver Coin – Reverse

Great Migrations – Humpback Whale 1 oz Silver Coin – Obverse

Humpback whales arguably make the longest documented migration of any mammal. They spend their summer months feeding in polar waters, but with the onset of winter, food becomes scarce and the water becomes too cold. So, they migrate an average of 2,500km to tropical waters to breed and give birth, then make the same journey back. With almost no rest along the way, they can cover over 1,600km per month.

Great Migrations – Humpback Whale 1 oz Silver Coin – Packaging

The coin reverse shows an engraved illustration of a pod of Humpback whales, gliding gracefully through the ocean. A few whales have been highlighted in colour, bringing further interest.

This stunning coin comes in a compact printed rectangular coin case, which incorporates an impressive, printed scene of this great migration. The uniquely numbered Certificate of Authenticity is printed on the inner cover.

With a worldwide limited mintage of only 3,000 coins, start your Great Migrations coin collection today!

MCM Exclusive: 2017 Archie the Dingo Coins

Celebrate one of the Australia Zoo’s most-loved animals!

The Royal Australian Mint has already issued a number of coins showing the famous crocodiles that reside in Steve Irwin’s famous ”Australia Zoo.” To continue this creative series, they’ve issued a 2017-dated coin commemorating a very special resident of the Australia Zoo — Archie the Alpine Dingo!

Archie was recently born at the zoo along with his two sisters, Jira and Eve. Unlike his siblings, Archie was born with impressive and very rare white fur! He quickly became one of the most popular attractions of the Australia Zoo, and gets plenty of attention from zookeepers and visitors.

2017 Australia $1 1 oz. Specimen Silver Australia Zoo – Archie the Alpine Dingo NGC MS70 Early Releases (Exclusive Australia Label)

Now, Archie has made his way into numismatics in the form of a 1 oz. .999 fine silver coin! A release that immediately sold-out from the Mint, this heart-warming coin has Archie’s name inscribed at the bottom, while he is shown resting on his haunches on the reverse. Although not a proof, this uncirculated coin is struck with very fine detail and a beautiful satin finish, displaying the white of Archie’s fur as frosted silver.

To create this coin, a beautiful partnership was created between the Royal Australian Mint and the Australia Zoo. A long-time supporter of the well-known zoo, the late Steve Irwin’s family is promoting Archie the Dingo Silver Coins. Steve, previously known as the ”Crocodile Hunter,” dedicated his life to the conservation and wellbeing of Australian wildlife. Survived by his wife, Terri, and two children, Bindi and Robert, Steve’s family has continued to pour their hearts into the success of the Australia Zoo and the care of its inhabitants — like Archie!
