In Canada's far-northern latitudes, where solitude and beauty meet, nature takes centre stage with a celestial light show that once seen, is certainly not forgotten. The sight of the aurora borealis is both mystical and mesmerizing as shimmering waves of dream-like colours dance overhead, weaving their way across the star-studded sky. Joining in with a chorus of their own, wolves pierce the silence of the night with a howl that seems to linger in the crisp air. Whether it is directed at the pack, the moon or the aurora itself, this haunting cry of the wild further heightens the sense of awe felt by those who bear witness to this colourful opus, and envy in others who long to experience it.

In the natural world, the aurora borealis occurs when charged particles emitted by a solar flare collide with the atoms in Earth's atmosphere, creating bursts of light called photons. When enough photons are released, the result is a luminous mix of green, red, yellow and orange colours that light up the dark night sky.

BEST VIEWED IN THE DARK! The full effect of your coin is best viewed in the dark after placing it in a light source for 30 to 60 seconds. This enhances the ethereal quality of the aurora borealis by adding a varying intensity of green, yellow, pink and orange hues, while recreating the soft glow of a moonlit night on the snow-covered landscape below.

An unforgettable addition to your collection allowing you to appreciate this natural phenomenon year-round! Hurry and order yours today before they're all gone!

Designed by Canadian artist Julius Csotonyi, your coin brings together rich colours and detailed engraving to recreate the breathtaking beauty of a winter night in Nunavut's Auyuittuq National Park. With the imposing vertical cliff of Thor Peak looming in the background, two Baffin Island wolves (Canis lupus manningi) stand upslope in the frozen river valley where they lift their muzzles to the sky and release their howl into the crisp air. Nature's most colourful light show seems to move to this haunting serenade as the aurora borealis arches overhead, bridging the tall granite peaks and the wolves.

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a custom clamshell with a graphic beauty box.
