Features selective gold-tone enamel accentuating the timber wolf's eyes! Order today!

The eyes of a northern timber wolf (Canis lupus occidentalis) are quick to size up any intrusion into its territory across the varied terrain of western Canada; yet its glowing gaze also conveys a sense of wisdom, pride and an enigmatic intelligence—as beautifully conveyed on the fourth coin in an annual series that features exquisite enamel-enhanced portraits of Canada's wildlife.

An exceptional opportunity not to be missed! Order your coin today!

Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc, your coin features a superbly detailed portrait of a timber wolf (Canis lupus occidentalis), which is also known as the Mackenzie Valley wolf. A close view of the wolf's facial features dominates the reverse, where the selective application of a gold-tone coloured enamel to each iris immediately pulls the focus towards the animal's unforgettable gaze. The colour effect adds a glowing intensity to the eyes, which appear to be fixed on the viewer. Breaking free from this unrelenting stare, a careful study of the wolf's other features reveals an outstanding amount of detail throughout the design. Advanced finishing and shading techniques enhance the intricate engraving, and provide a realistic sense of depth, texture and contrast to the wolf's ears, nose, mouth and fur.

Packaging:

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maple wooden case with a black beauty box.

I was really drawn to the first coin the Owl, then the blue eyed cougar and now the timber wolf> The one kilo coins are a special production that I have always been drawn to and the minimal use of color makes them the most vibrant in my collect to date.
