Perfect imagery to use for an ultra-high relief coin, order today!

Native to the boreal forests that stretch from Yukon to Newfoundland-and-Labrador, the Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis) is one of the most common wild cats in Canada. Yet, encounters with this stealthy, agile predator remain rare; this fine silver coin captures the beauty of Canada's elusive feline in a forceful show of strength.

Your ultra-high relief coin uses the imagery of the Canada lynx which makes full use of the ultra-high relief allowing the lynx's head to have a more sculptural aspect to it. Once you see it in your hand, you will make this coin the centerpiece of your coin display. Order today before they're all gone!

Special features:
•   A rare opportunity to view the elusive lynx's distinctive facial features, which are superbly rendered due to our finely detailed engraving skills.
•   The use of multiple finishes and ultra high relief provide an added depth and further showcase the combined craftsmanship and artistry that have produced this stunning coin design.
•   Crafted in fine silver (99.99% pure), with a limited worldwide mintage of only 6,000 coins.
•   This coin is an outstanding addition to any Canadiana- or wildlife-themed collection.
•   Makes a stunning gift for collectors and animal lovers alike.
•   GST/HST exempt.

Coin design:
Designed by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc, your coin offers a close-up portrait of the elusive hunter, the Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis). The lynx's long, shaggy winter coat is rendered in exceptional detail, from the black tips of its beard-like fur to the fine whiskers that stretch out on either side of the face. Despite its elusive nature, this predator's fierce gaze holds steady as it vocalises its displeasure, holding its jaw open in mid-roar to reveal sharp teeth. The ears, with whisker-like tufts rising up from the tips, stand pointed as though they first detected the intrusion that drew the lynx's attention in the direction of the viewer.

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

              Just received my ultra high relief lynx coin--just a stunning engraving. The eyes seem to follow you no matter how the coin is angled. I showed it to a number of my non-coin collecting co-workers who were very impressed. Well done RCM!

                    Comments about Fine Silver Ultra-High Relief Coin – Canada Lynx – Mintage: 6000 (2014):

                    This coin is somewhat unique having such high relief. As such it is a new and innovative addition to my collection. The quality of the minting is outstanding, being crisp and clean. It is truly an "ultra" high relief and done very well. The designer / sculpturor work leaves a bit to be desired as from most angles the Lynx appears to be somewhat cross-eyed.
                    Overall I am extremely impressed with this coin and consider it a very valuable addition to my collection.
                    I would suggest to the RCM that for a coin of this type in the future, at the price which is being charged, it be a 46.14 g. (1.5 ozt) or full "Piedfort" type 61.52 g. (2.0 ozt.).
                    Thank you again RCM, I find your work superior to every other country in quality of your products and in this coin as with most others with exception of the "first nations" themed coins.
                    I only down grade to a 4 / 5 because level of the artistic work does not come up to the outstanding level of the technical, engineering and design work of this coin.
                    Respectfully, a United States collector of both modern and early Canadian coins.

                      This size of the coin and the design are well balanced. I have often said that the reason Canada's coin are so beautiful is that they only have to design one side, but I must say you make up for it with quality.
