This beautiful privy silver maple leaf pays homage to the Patterson-Gimlin film of Bigfoot shot in California in 1967.
This coin must surely qualify as one of the most unusual silver coins ever released by the Royal Canadian Mint! The legend of a "wild man", Yeti or Sasquatch has existed among the indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest for centuries. Perhaps the best known "live footage" of a Bigfoot was shot by Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin in Northern California in October 1967. The still image of Bigfoot looking at the camera from frame 352 of their film has provided the inspiration for the privy mark on this coin.
These coins are minted in a beautiful reverse proof style, with the field being frosted while the maple leaf, privy mark and lettering are shiny. This release will be limited to mintage of only 50000.
A guaranteed conversation starter and a great way to introduce family and friends to investing in hard assets, these coins will always be in demand thanks to their limited mintage.
In multiples of 25 these coins will be shipped in a plastic tube.
