Is this coin the start of a new series?

Per the Mint web site:

"A new Lunar Year series begins in 2022 with this 1 oz. pure silver coin!" So, it appears that it is the first coin in a new series.

Quote:
Has the obverse "scalloped" design been used before on other coins?

The Mint has employed a number of geometric line backgrounds on its coin over the past few years - multiple designs with maple leaf elements - but I don't immediately recall the exact same pattern as seen on this new Year of the Tiger coin. Maybe it will be unique to this new series.

For the great lake coin, it is beautiful. I have kept observing at ebay, and it shows up there as well, with a listed price of more than 900.
It is limited to 2 per household, but somehow sold out very soon. I don't think the price will drop for this one, given its high price, the dealers who buy it has the patience to wait. It is very similar to the luxury market. And you can already see some lower price silver coin listed at ebay with slightly lower price. Those coins are still available from RCM. Not sure if anyone understand their motivation? One interesting thing, the black and gold wolf reaches about CAD$180, and the black and gold horse is crazily more than a thousand(though the last successful deal is at $350),and you can only find one seller there. This shows that the current coin collectors focus more on the design and are willing to pay the premium for a certain well design coin.

Almost all RCM collector-issue coins drop in price after their initial buzz wears off. Let's see where the market price on this one settles in a year or two. Personally, I think it will be lower than today's just-after-release price points.

This may be true for some collectors, but I don't think it is universal. Many of today's collector-speculators go after the first issue of a series because first issues have a history of higher secondary market prices. For these collectors, I believe the design aesthetics are secondary.

Totally agree. The 'in the moonlight series' is a good example, the first 'northern light in the moonlight' has one sold record early this year with a price two times more than the issued price. However, the subsequent animal in the moon light coins didn't get the hype with the same mintage.
Still trying to understand the market. But for myself, I am interested to coins related to Canadian history and landscape.

I don't know if it is late Aug release or early Sept, but I see someone on ebay selling a
Canada 1 Oz Silver $25 Dollars Concave Coin, Klondike Gold Rush, 2021.
Composition: 99.99% pure silver with selective gold plating
Shipping: October 2021

It is kind of neat to try to shape the coin like a pan and make it as if panning for gold. I think I'll take a pass on this one.

Received ordering info last night from rep. I consider it a mid-August release rather than early September release since we not even half way through month.

I like it. Probably will buy, depending on price and mintage.

The Klondike Gold Rush coin sells for $189.95 and mintage is 5000. I don't recall any unadorned 1 oz coin that is so expensive at $189.95, which is usually reserved for 2 oz coins.

Thanks, MoneyPenny.

$189.95 for a 1oz coin, with a mintage of 5,000?

That's crazy...unless there's some real value in them there gold nuggets. : - )

Back in 2016, the 140th Anniversary of the Library of Parliament domed/curved coin had the same specs as the new Klondike coin (but it wasn't selectively gold-plated) and had a maximum mintage of 6,000. Its issue price was $159.95.

2016's $159.95 is 2021's $189.95!

1 oz. Pure Silver Concave Coin - 125th Anniversary of the Klondike Gold Rush: Panning for Gold

Just saw it on RCM site. I guess for Master club members for now. I like it and will buy it to proudly display it. I will use some of my points for a discount. :)

I am also expecting the release of the $2 Klondike special wrap and keepsake cards this month... they were advertised as an August release last month when the Insulin $2 circulation sets were issued.

As a note for those looking for US based purchases, APMEX just listed the Black and Gold Grey Wolf and Great Lakes coins for $250 and $530 US respectively. They also have the 2oz Gold Pysanka for $6500 US. All of which are sold out at the RCM.

.

It looks interesting but not in my plan. Also the mintage is too high, I guess there will be quite a few available in ebay with lower price. Also $189 for 2 oz is just too expensive.

I got mine from ebay with total cost of $180, it is really beautiful. I want the horse as well, since they have the same design and should be in the same series.
However, it is too expensive on ebay now.
