Fine Silver Fractional 4-Coin Set – The Wolf – Mintage: 7,500 (2016)

Mintage: 7,500
Canada and US only

Beautifully presented in a maple wood case! Order today!

It is a formidable guardian of its territory, one that possesses keen senses and strong instincts; feared in folklore yet revered as a hunter, the adaptable wolf (Canis lupus) plays an important role as the apex predator in each region it inhabits. It is also widely seen as a symbol of strength, one that is representative of the rugged wilderness found in remote areas across Canada. In a nod to this remarkable animal—and to this vast country's biodiversity—the engraved portrait of a lone wolf graces the reverse of each coin in this unique fractional set.

This must-have fractional set is a stunning example of our world-renowned craftsmanship as it presents a majestic portrait of a grey wolf across various coin sizes (1 oz., ½ oz., ¼ oz. and 1/10 oz.) while maintaining the same degree of realism, dimension and depth—true artistry!

A valuable and prized addition to any wildlife-, Canada- or nature-themed collection! Order today!

Special features:
  • All four coins (1 oz., ½ oz., ¼ oz. and 1/10 oz.) are 99.99% pure silver!
  • This beautiful set features 4 coins in one-ounce and fractional denominations, with each one featuring the reverse image of an iconic grey wolf.
  • This is only the second fractional set to ever feature a reverse image other than the maple leaf.
  • Fine engraving and a proof finish create a reverse design that is visually striking, offering a detailed rendering of the wolf's features.
  • GST/HST exempt with a limited worldwide mintage.

About the Design:
All four coins are 99.99% pure silver, with each one featuring the same remarkable reverse image by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc. Using different finishes to enhance the expert engraving, Royal Canadian Mint engravers have faithfully rendered a lone grey wolf in exceptionally fine detail. This right-side profile emphasizes the textures on the wolf's furry neck, its pointed ears, and its facial features. Possessing keen senses, the intelligent animal has fixed its steely, determined gaze upon something in the distance just beyond the reverse image field; this allows the viewer to get a close view of the wolf's expression as it stands with its tongue slightly protruding and its mouth open to reveal a row of teeth along its lower jaw. The overall design boasts a remarkable combination of artistry and craftsmanship as the wolf's meticulously engraved fur lends the image a sense of dimension and depth, in a way that the viewer can easily imagine the softness of it to the touch.

Packaging:
Your set is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maple wood case with a graphic beauty box.

                      I love wolves. Wolves often are viewed by some in a negative light and this is wrong. Wolves are the ancestors of our best friend, the dogs.

                          This is an excellent set of coins for the collector drawn to the mint's fine representation of the wildlife of Canada. The case is a wonderful display for this set,much nicer than the old plastic cases for previous fractional silver sets. The coins themselves are a very realistic representation of the fierceness of this majestic animal.I am never disappointed with the mints' animal coins.

                                Thank you for your question. Our fractional set means that the set contains various coin sizes, in this case 1 oz., ½ oz., ¼ oz. and 1/10 oz. coins, while maintaining the same degree of realism, dimension and depth on all coins. That is, the coin sizes are fractional sizes of each other.
