The Royal Canadian Mint has a reputation for producing popular silver and gold bullion coin series that feature designs inspired by the vast wilderness of Canada. In the latest silver bullion program from the RCM, the Predator Series, a popular figure debuts on the first release. Now is your chance to capture the deadly cougar on the 2016 1oz Canadian Silver Predator Cougar Coin.
Limited mintage of 1,000,000 coins! 1st Release in the Predator Series!
- Contains 1 oz of .9999 pure silver.
- Face value of $5 (CAD) is fully backed by the government of Canada.

These new .9999 pure silver coins from RCM depict the cougar in a manner never-before-seen on a Canadian coin. Cougars are elusive and silent hunters, pouncing on their prey before the unsuspecting creature knows what is happening. The cougar is the world’s fourth largest cat, and is known in the Western Hemisphere by other names such as the mountain lion and puma.
The reverse face of the 2016 1oz Canadian Silver Predator Cougar Coin features one of the elusive cats as it leaps down from a rockface onto its unsuspecting prey below. Engravings include the year of issue and nation of issue above, as well as the face value of the coin below.
On the obverse face of these all-new coins you’ll find the familiar right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, as created by Susanna Blunt in 2003. Her Majesty’s effigy is surrounded by engravings that include her name, the phrase “D.G. Regina.”
The Royal Canadian Mint is releasing this new series of four silver coins known as the Predator Series, and the Cougar coin is the first release.
