The 2017 One Ounce Canadian Gold Elk coin, like its predecessors, is also minted using the gold of the highest purity in the world (to date) – sitting at an astounding 99.999%.
Each of these coins is struck using exceedingly pure 0.99999 (99.999%) gold, weighing one troy ounce.

Established in 1901, the Royal Canadian Mint is responsible for a number of celebrated precious metals products and series of coins. Displaying excellent quality, precious metals purity, and exquisite artwork, their products have always appealed to both investors and Canadian coin collectors.
The reverses of these coins display Pierre Leduc’s grandiose depiction of the Elk. One of the largest land mammals to inhabit the continent, the Elk was first known as the wapiti by Early Canadian tribes. Imprinted on the outer rim are – the name of the issuing country ‘Canada’ and the weight and purity of the gold used in minting the coin.
Like all other Canadian legal tender, the obverse features a regal rendering of Queen Elizabeth’s portrait, created by Susanna Blunt in 2003.
Gold with such fine purity is bound to be a valuable addition to investment portfolios, while these annually changing designs make this coin a crucial product for collectors who want to keep their collections up to date.
