2013 $300 14 Karat Gold Coin - Territorial Coat of Arms - Northwest Territories - 12362

This 12th in the Royal Canadian Mint's popular 13-coin series of 14-karat gold series featuring the Coats of Arms of Canada's 10 provinces and 3 territories.

Royal Canadian Mint engravers have created an exceptional reproduction of the Coat of Arms of the Northwest Territories. Adopted in 1956, the Arms features a central shield diagonally bisected by a wavy line symbolizing the treeline which geographically separates the boreal forest from the Arctic tundra.

On the left side of the shield, rectangular billets represent the region's mineral wealth, while the face of Arctic fox on the right side represents the natural resources that historically drove exploration in the region. Across the top portion of the shield, a dark horizontal wavy line on light ground symbolizes the Northwest Passage through the jagged polar ice caps.

The shield is crowned with a navigational star representing the magnetic north pole, which was located in the Northwest Territories prior to the establishment of Nunavut in 1999. The star is guarded by two narwhals, which face away from one another. The polished reverse field is engraved with the word "CANADA," the date "2013," and the face value of "300 DOLLARS." The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
