On the reverse of each 2019 Gold Canadian Moose Coin, you’ll find a bull moose. The moose is a New World deer subfamily and represents both the heaviest and largest extant member of its species within the deer family. Most notable about the moose, when compared to other deer, are the broad, open shape of the antlers compared to the twig-like appearance of antlers on other species of deer.
The obverse of 2019 1 oz Gold Canadian Moose Coins includes the fourth-generation portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Designed in 2003 by Susanna Blunt, this right-profile portrait of Her Majesty is the first on Canadian coinage since the reign of King George VI (Elizabeth II’s father) to depict the monarch without a crown.
The Royal Canadian Mint was founded in 1908 as the sovereign mint of Canada as it approached full independence from Britain later in the century. The Ottawa Mint was the original mint location and is now supported by the Winnipeg Mint that opened in the late 1970s.
