Call of the Wild gold coins all come in the traditional 1 oz size. However, some editions are also available in the 1/10 oz fractional weight.

The motif side of the coin depicts a detailed profile of the head of a growling cougar. The design was created by engraver and artist Pierre Leduc. The inscriptions that appear around the outer edge are “CANADA” and “FINE GOLD 1 OZ 99999 OR PUR”. Below the cougar is a micro-engraved maple leaf, which is a leading edge security feature that makes the coin almost impossible to counterfeit.
The value side depicts a right side profile of Queen Elizabeth II. The design of the Queen was created by artist Susanna Blunt. The engravings around the outer edge read “ELIZABETH II” “200 DOLLARS” and “2015”.
The cougar is one of Canada’s largest and fiercest wildcats. The average sprinting speed of a cougar is 56 kilometres an hour. Cougars live in the mountains and forests of Canada where they will not be seen.
