2021 Canada Bold Bison 9999 Extraordinarily High Relief Gold and Silver Proof 2 Coin Set (NGC PF70 UC) (Certificate # 68)
The Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) made history in 2020 when they struck the world’s first “Extraordinary High Relief” (EHR) gold coins. Part of the Canadian Gold and Silver Eagle program, this stunning coin boasted a massive, 5.95mm relief height. Not unexpectedly, this stunning coin sold out from the mint within only a day of their launch.
Flash forward to 2021, and the mint has just released a follow-up issue to this first-ever EHR release – this time commemorating yet another North American Animal the U.S. and Canada share – the Buffalo! Even higher than last year, this design is struck with a massive, 6.1mm relief height. And for only the second time, NGC is using the special designation “Extraordinary High Relief” to designate these coins as being of a new relief category entirely above “Ultra High Relief”.
These 2021 Canadian Gold and Silver Buffalos EHR are available for purchase graded by NGC as PF70 with the prestigious First Day of Issue designations. Every coin was slabbed in black cores with Canadian Flag labels signed by none other than retired Royal Canadian Mint Senior Engraver, Susan Taylor. Coins will ship inside either a black velvet pouch or a premium, black wooden box with a red Maple Logo, as well as a Mint COA and small story booklet.
