This 2012 Proof finish 14 karat gold coin is part of a low mintage gold coin series featuring the Coat-of-arms of each province, and pays tribute to Nunavut, Canada's newest territory. With a weight of 60 grams (about two ounces), and a diameter of 50 mm, this is a large and impressive piece. With an extremely low mintage of only 500 coins, it will also be a scarce collectors' item.  The coin comes encapsulated and cased with a numbered certificate of authenticity.  

The Coat of Arms for Nunavut is Canada's youngest Arms granted to its youngest territory by Governor General Roméo LeBlanc in 1999. It was created by Inuit artist Andrew Qappik in partnership with the Canadian Heraldic Authority and the elders and leaders of Nunavut to create a distinct blend of ancient Inuit symbolism and European heraldic tradition. Resting upon the shield is an igloo which was essential to survival and represents the traditional way of Inuit life and the modern gathering of legislative members. The territory's status in Confederation is symbolized by the Royal Crown above. Holding the shield are a tuktu (caribou) and quilalugaq tuugaalik (narwhal), important wildlife that sustain the people. The motto is written in Inuktitut, which reads "Nunavut Sanginivut" (Nunavut our strength).

• Rarity: Mintage 500 pieces - extremely low mintage

Over the past few years, the Royal Canadian Mint has significantly reduced the mintages of many of its coins, leading to regular sell outs and many coins rapidly appreciating in the secondary market.
