Description

Guardian of its territory, the wolf (Canis lupus) is a fearless hunter that relies on its remarkable intelligence, its keen senses, and a pack mentality to maintain its reputation as an apex predator. Found in remote areas from Labrador to British Columbia and north, the wolf plays an important role in each region’s biodiversity; as a symbol of Canada’s untamed wilderness and for its prowess as a hunter. Here, our lone wolf blends in with its surroundings in Jasper National Park, of Canada where fiercely territorial packs often have a 1,000 square kilometer radius to eke out their own space in the shadows of the mountain ranges—including Chief Mountain, which is seen to the left of the wolf.

SPECIAL FEATURES

  • A striking design that conveys the strength and beauty of the wolf as a fearless hunter that makes its home in remote areas across Canada.
  • Rendered in more than 1 ounce of 99.999% pure gold, the highest standard of pure gold available in the world.
  • The use of various finishes against a background that has been hand-polished to proof perfection further enhances the expert engraving, and helps bring this beautiful alpha wolf to life.
  • The finely detailed design exemplifies the Royal Canadian Mint’s internationally renowned artistry and craftsmanship.
  • A striking addition to your wildlife, nature or Canadiana themed collection.

DESIGN

The reverse image designed by Canadian artist Maurade Baynton features a lone wolf (Canis lupus) rendered in stunning detail through expert engraving, which affords us a unique close-up view of the wolf’s characteristics in a natural habitat. Here, our fearless hunter is perched on a rocky slope and holds its steely gaze as it surveys its remote territory, while scanning the horizon beyond the image field. Tall timbers rise up behind the wolf in a breathtaking alpine backdrop, with the mountain range looming above the winding river valley below.
