Awesome. Ethereal. Legendary.

That is the magic of the northern lights, and if you’ve ever experienced them firsthand, you know this incredible phenomenon is really beyond words; shimmering waves of light that can leave you breathless. And if you’ve never seen the northern lights, the captivating colours on this pure silver hologram coin might just inspire you to venture north to watch them “live.”

Out there, standing in the dark, Earth’s great lightshow may take on a whole new dimension if the shimmering ribbons of light are accompanied by the sound of howling wolves. It’s one of the most hauntingly beautiful experiences that the wilderness has to offer; a spectacle so mystifying that generations of sky gazers, adventurers and nature lovers have ventured into the darkness, and long pondered if wolves do indeed howl at the light.

At night, in the dead of winter, light and sound travel much farther, aided by the clear, crisp air. If there’s more light, wolves can also be more active; and as their pack disperses in search of food, they will be calling to each other. Their howls will be amplified by the clear, crisp air, just like the northern lights; and the result for the lucky viewer is a hauntingly beautiful symphony of colour and sound.
