There have been four prior releases. All of them sold out. Mintages of the first three coins topped at 50,000. This newest release, along with the last one, has a lower mintage of 45,000. Previous series coins include:

  • 2013 $100 Bison silver coin, debuting in May 2013
  • 2014 $100 Grizzly silver coin, launching in September 2013
  • 2014 $100 Bald Eagle silver coin, debuting in January 2014
  • 2014 $100 Bighorn Sheep silver coin, launching in June 2014

These coins are viewed as a premium option to the Royal Canadian Mint’s $20 for $20 program which has proven extremely popular. This older program with much higher per-coin mintages has seen 14 coins issued to date, with all of them selling out.
