The 2014 Canada 1/4 oz $10 Gold Arctic Fox is a limited mintage coin produced by the Royal Canadian Mint and was only minted one year – 2014 thus quantities are very limited. The reverse of the coin features Canadian artist Maurice Gervais rendition of an Arctic Fox (Vulpes lagopus) in its natural habitat. The obverse features a right-facing profile of Queen Elizabeth II, along with the year and face value. The Arctic Fox is a sovereign coin fully backed by the Canadian government. The limited mintage coupled with backing of the Canadian government makes this coin very attractive for long-term investors looking to diversify away from US currency, particularly inside of retirement accounts.
