  • 2014 – $125 1/2 Kilo Fine Silver Coin – Howling Wolf

    Four subspecies of Canis lupus are found across northern and western Canada and in the region around the Great Lakes. Canis lupus lycaon, the Eastern Timber Wolf, resides in the south-eastern region of the Great Lakes. Canis lupus arctos, the Arctic Wolf, lives in the far north. Canis lupus nubilus, known as the Great Plains Wolf or Buffalo Wolf, lives in the south-central region just west of the Great Lakes. Canis lupus occidentalis, the Rocky Mountain or McKenzie Valley Wolf, has its home in the west as far north as Alaska.Some experts believe that howling—that eerie hallmark of this unique species—is a key element of territory establishment, acting both as a warning to other packs and a call to gathering among pack members.

  • 2014 – $25 Ultra High Relief Fine Silver Coin – 75th Anniversary of the First Royal Visit

    History was made when King George VI and Queen Elizabeth visited Canada in 1939. It was the first time a reigning monarch had ever traveled to North America, and for a young nation eager to flex its muscles of independence, the royal tour provided the perfect opportunity. Eight years earlier, a number of colonies had gained full sovereignty from British rule under the Statute of Westminster; for Canada, the Royal Tour would breathe life into that legal document in a real and dramatic way.The royal tour was more than two years in the making; a grand, 29-day voyage across Canada from east to west and back again—almost 14,000 kilometres by rail. The royal train featured the best carriages that Canadian Pacific and the Canadian National Railway had to offer, with two specially fitted convertible McLaughlin-Buicks on board to tour the royal couple in cities and towns along the way.

  • 2014 – 25 Cents Cupronickle – lily and leopard Frog

    Found in Canadian province and Territory except Yukon and Nunavut, the leopard frog is aptly named for the irregularly shaped black spots that dot its brown, greenish-brown, or green skin. It lives in a variety of habitats including wetlands in prairies and woodlands in summer for feeding. In the fall it usually moves to ponds, streams, and rivers which do not freeze to the bottom. In the spring it emerges to seek out ponds and marshes for breeding. It is there that the tadpoles will develop.The leopard frog consumes nearly any animal that fits in its mouth, be it insects, worms, smaller frogs and even birds or garter snakes. The hunter becomes the hunted if it encounters predators such as fish, water snakes, turtles, herons, raccoons or even larger frogs.

  • 2014 – $5 1 oz. Fine Silver Coin – Arctic Fox

    Just slightly larger than the average housecat, Vulpes lagopus—the Arctic fox—is a silent and prolific hunter. The pelt of the Arctic fox is unmatched for warmth, sustaining it at temperatures below -50° Celsius. Its fur is brown, grey-brown, blue-grey, or dark blue-grey in the warmer months. In the long Arctic winter, most turn pure white, although some populations show lighter blue-grey through the winter phase. The fox's thick fur covers its small rounded ears and even the pads of its feet, for optimum warmth.

  • 2014 – $5 Dollars Fine Silver Tradition of Hunting : The Seal

Many stories speak of mystical beings who oversee people's activities to ensure nature's laws are respected. One such legend is Sedna, the goddess of the sea. If a hunter takes more than his fair share, Sedna will not permit the animals to offer themselves.

  • 2014 – $20 Fine Silver Coin – Untamed Canada : Wolverine

    The wolverine is the largest member of the Mustelidae (weasel) family. This stout animal enjoys a fearsome "tough guy" reputation.Much of the wolverine's notoriety can be attributed to its secretive ways, low population density and remote northerly range in central and western Canada. It's one of the nation's least understood animals, but as researchers continue to study the wolverine, they are discovering it is one of nature's great powerhouses.The wolverine's strength is far beyond its stature. Its powerful jaws can bite through moose tibia, and its teeth have evolved to eat frozen meat and bones. It has long, semi-retractable claws that it uses primarily for digging and climbing. And while the wolverine is known to ferociously defend its food from larger predators, it is primarily a scavenger rather than a hunter of live prey.

  • 2014 – $10 Fine Silver Hologram Coin – Green Darner Dragonfly

    One of the loveliest, largest, and most widespread dragonfly species in Canada is Anax junius, commonly known as the Green Darner. Both males and females range in length between 70 and 80 millimetres and have a wingspan of 100 to 120 millimetres. The Green Darner's common name is rooted in its bright green body and long blue abdominal region marked with a black line along its entire length that looks much like a darning needle. The Green Darner has large green or brown eyes that join at the top of its head, extending the dragonfly's scope of vision to nearly 360 degrees. The area just in front of the conjoined eyes bears a distinctive dark "bull's-eye" marking.
