Despite its powerful frame and massive size, the moose does not subsist on a diet of meats. The primary source of food for the moose is terrestrial and aquatic vegetation. Unlike other species of deer, moose do not live in herds. Instead, moose are solitary animals and only live together for 18 months when young calves are born. A mother will stick by its calf until the age of 18 months, at which point the cow will chase it away.
All of the 2022 1/4 oz Canadian Gold Moose Reverse Proof Coins are available to you with reverse-proof visuals. Coins with this type of proof finish offer mirrored design elements and frosted background fields. The coins in the 1/4 oz gold weight are offered in protective flips, plastic sheets of 20 coins, or boxes of 800 coins. The box holds a total of 40 tubes with 20 coins per tube.
On the obverse side of 2022 Canadian Gold Moose Reverse Proof Coins is an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown here in right-profile relief without a crown on her head. This is the fourth-generation portrait of the Queen on Canadian coins and the first during her reign to lack a crown. Canadian coins have their own, distinctive effigies of the Queen as of 1990 and this is the second design to come from a Canadian artist.
The reverse field of 2022 1/4 oz Gold Moose Reverse Proof Coins comes with a depiction of a powerful moose. The male moose is instantly identifiable with its massive, broad antlers. The antlers of the male moose are unique among members of the deer family. Rather than the dendritic, or twig-like, antlers of all other deer, moose have broad, palmate antlers that are shaped like open-handed bowls.
