Recently, the Royal Canadian Mint launched a new program similar to their “$20 for $20" coin program. That highly successful program sold coins with a face value of C$20 at a price of C$20. Those coins contained about a quarter ounce of silver. This new program is the “$100 for $100" silver coin program, and each coin will contain 31.6 g of silver which is 1.016 troy ounces.
The first coin in the series is the 2013 Bison $100 Silver Coin. It's reverse side features three bison stampeding through the countryside. This release is honoring wildlife in motion and depicts these magnificent animals as they would be in the wild. Claudio D'Angelo designed the reverse image and Susanna Blunt designed the obverse side which contains a portrait view of Queen Elizabeth II.
These silver coins are struck in .9999 fine silver and have a diameter of 40 mm. The Royal Canadian Mint has placed a 50,000 unit maximum amount on these beautiful silver coins. Available to United States and Canadian residents through the Mint, these coins are destined to sell out in a short amount of time.
The $20 for $20 Royal Canadian Mint coins saw all eight coins sell out. Those coins contained 7.96 g of .9999 fine silver which is equivalent to 0.256 troy ounces. The $20 coins had a diameter of 27 mm which made them close to the size of a United States quarter which is 24.6 mm. The $100 coins will contain a matte proof finish which is different than the specimen finish used on the $20 for $20 Canada silver coins.
The Mint began with a three unit per household limit but change that to one per household which could indicate a great amount of popularity for this silver coin.
