The_Moose_Family_Original_Painting_by_famous wildlife artist and painter Robert BatemanDesign by Wildlife Artist Claudio D'Angelo
The intricate design by Canadian artist Claudio D’Angelo offers a side profile of a bull moose as it makes its way through a forest clearing. In this tranquil wintry setting, the moose is rendered in stunning detail – from its thick fur to the majesty of its antlers, its features are engraved in meticulous detail. The dark-colored moose is scarcely troubled by the snow-covered terrain as it descends a gentle incline amidst snow-clad trees in the background.

The Magnificent Moose
The largest member of the Cervidae (deer) family (which also includes elk, caribou, white-tailed deer, and mule deer), the moose (Alces alces) is one of Canada’s most emblematic animals. The giant ruminant, standing taller at its more than six foot (2-meter) high shoulders than the very tallest horse, inhabits the vast boreal forest, as well as muskegs and valley lands. Weighing hundreds of pounds (a bull moose (male) can weigh up to 1300 pounds (600 kilograms)) and, in the case of bulls, carrying a rack of antlers sometimes spanning five feet (1.5 meters), the moose can nevertheless pass through dense brush in almost complete silence.

The Challenge bull moose Original_Painting_by_famous wildlife artist and painter Robert Bateman With spindly legs, hugely muscled shoulders, a low rump, stubby tail, and mule-like ears, the moose’s body may seem ungainly to some, but is well adapted for its environment. Its broad hooves help it to pass easily over snow and marshland. Its long, narrow head ends in a flexible upper lip that helps it to grasp leaves, bark, twigs, and aquatic plants. Beneath its chin hangs a distinctive flap of skin called a “bell” which, though its function is still not entirely understood, in part helps the moose to attract potential mates during the autumn rut.

Considering its massive size, the moose is exceptionally nimble. It can run for short distances at speeds of up to  30 miles (50 kilometers) per hour and can swim long distances, dive more than 16 feet (5 meters) and hold its breath underwater for about 30 seconds. Moose span the majority of Canada’s forests, from the Alaskan border and the southern border of Canada to the Maritime provinces of the Atlantic Ocean. Experts estimate a total Canadian population of more than 500,000.

Investment Note

Known as the “5 9s” gold coins because of their purity (.99999 fine), the coins of the $350 denomination are the largest of the purest gold coins in the world. Each contains one and one-eighth ounces of the purest gold on the planet! These incredible proof coins typically sell out at the mint and then increase in value. They can be very difficult to find once sold out. The mintage limit of only 600 guarantees that this coin will always be truly rare, and that no more than that number of people in the entire world can ever possess one. With such a low mintage this investment piece will grow harder to find as the years go by! Don't miss out - get yours today!
