FEATURES DIAMOND GLITTER! Recreates the light-reflecting qualities of coloured snow and ice! Order today!

The arctic wolf (Canis lupus arctos) is well suited to winters in Canada's Far North, thanks in part to a double-layer coat that insulates it against the cold. The distinctive colouring of its pelt provides effective camouflage and allows our wolf to blend in with its surroundings on this fine silver coin, where diamond glitter re-creates the sparkle of the snow-covered landscape.

Hold it in your hand and turn it slowly and watch how the diamond glitter catches the light! Order today!

Special features:
  • THIRD COIN IN GLISTENING NORTH SERIES! This is the third coin in the Glistening North series that combines technology and art!
  • DIAMOND GLITTER! Selective use of diamond glitter adds an intensely glittering effect on your coin that recreates the light-reflecting qualities of daylight snow and ice and the colours they create. A dusting of fine diamond particles was carefully applied to your coin to ensure an even layering over the select design elements.
  • NEVER LOSES SPARKLE! The dazzling effect on your coin is sealed to protect it from the elements so that your coin never loses its sparkle!
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins. Most of these are serialized certifications, meaning that each certificate is given a unique number, starting at 1.
  • ONE-OUNCE 99.99% PURE SILVER COIN! Your coin is GST/HST exempt!
  • LOW MINTAGE: Only 5,000 coins will be made worldwide.


Designed by Canadian artist Maurade Baynton, your coin artfully combines detailed engraving, selective colour and a diamond glitter element to capture a serene moment in Northern Canada. Lying on the frozen ground, an arctic wolf takes a moment to rest its weary head next to its forepaws. This northern hunter is engraved in magnificent detail to capture the uniqueness of its features—including the long fur that keeps it insulated against winter's chill. Behind the wolf, engraving adds texture to the trees that surround it, while the application of soft colours re-create the hues and shadows of fading daylight. While the landscape slumbers beneath a thick blanket of snow, a sealed layer of fine diamond particles re-creates the effect of snow sparkle on this enchanting winter day in the North.


Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.

This coin is really nice


This is a really nice coin to add to my wolf coin collection

He's a gorgeous wolf.


I was expecting a little more sparkle in the "diamond" snow and a little subtler blue in the background but overall, this is a beautifully carved coin and I would certainly recommend it.




very nice


At first I wasn't interested in the coin, but after seeing it magnified I gained an appreciation of the fine workmanship.

It's not often that a coin looks like the pictures in the descriptive literature, but this is one of those times. Very nice! I do wished the diamond dust 'snow' had more glisten.

The first coin in this series was the best so far. Although I do like the design, I am disappointed at the price and mintage change within the series. One would expect that a series would contain coins with the same mintage and price point, as collectors often like to collect an entire series. I think it is deceiving that they would issue two coins in a series at one price and when the third one comes out decrease the mintage because the other coins didn't sell out, thus attempting to increase demand(making the coin "seem" more rare) followed by an increase in price. It makes me not want to purchase any coins that will be part of a series because who knows, maybe they will jack up the price on the last coin to $200 in an effort to make more money.




Love it !


For my collect or for a gift.

Stunning Version of resting wolf. I love it.


So many standing or running wolves. THIS resting wolf coin is a delightful change well-suited for the diamond dust series of texture and glisten. I LOVE it and think it the PERFECT third coin in the series. TY

I would buy this item again.


I will hold my judgment for now.






Excellent details and the diamond dust makes it sparkle.
