The howl of a wolf pack sends shivers down even the most stalwart spine. Yet, in the entire written history of Canada, there is not a single record of a wolf having killed a human being. Canada boasts the world's second-largest wolf population, with estimates between 50,000 and 60,000. For eons, this powerful, mysterious, resilient creature has roamed free throughout northern and western Canada and in the region around the Great Lakes, singing its song to the coming and going of the moon.

Design
Designed by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc, your coin features a full-body portrait of a lone wolf set against the backdrop of a remote Canadian Arctic landscape. The wolf stands at ease, gazing toward the viewer with just a hint of a wolfish grin. Its thick fur, sharp claws and pointed ears are rendered in dimensional detail through exquisite engraving. The wolf stands atop a rock outcropping amid small mosses and lichens, surrounded by a group of evergreens. The reverse is framed with a border engraved with the word "CANADA," the date "2013," the face value of "10 DOLLARS," and a stylized wolf paw-print.

Packaging
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a maroon clamshell case lined with flock and protected by a customized beauty box.

This coin is a wonderful gift and collectible to celebrate Canada's natural wonders, the Canadian North, Canada's Arctic sovereignty, and our country's unique iconography.
