The Royal Canadian Mint has opened the pre-ordering period for the latest coin within the Exchange $20 for $20 series, which features 99.99% pure silver coins priced at their legal tender face value of $20.
The latest design carries a striking depiction of a wolf against a barren landscape. The inscriptions include the face value “20 Dollars”, “Fine Silver Argent Pur 9999″, the date “2013″, and “Canada”. The obverse of the coin features the Susanna Blunt effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.
Each coin is struck in 99.99% pure silver with a weight of 7.96 grams. This yields silver content of 0.256 troy ounces. The coins have a diameter of 27 mm and a serrated edge. The mintage is indicated at 250,000 pieces, with an ordering limit of 3 per household.
As mentioned, these coins are currently available for pre-order by Master’s Club members only. Public ordering should open soon.
All previous releases within the $20 for $20 series have sold out with the exception of the most recently released Hockey themed coin which went on sale in late January.
The new 2013 Wolf $20 Silver Coin will be the eighth release within the series.
