SECOND COIN IN SERIES! Enamel effect adds complex colours to lynx's eyes! Order today!

The mythical keeper of secrets and seer of truths, the Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis) is most active when night descends upon the boreal forest. Its acute vision is well suited to hunting in low-light conditions—a fact highlighted on the second coin in the Animal Eyes series, which combines an enamel effect and glow-in-the-dark technology to mimic the wondrous luminescence of these wild eyes.

An ideal gift for someone who enjoys a fun addition to a gorgeous coin design! Order your coin today!

Special features:
  • SECOND COIN IN SERIES! Your coin is the second in a series of three coins featuring the remarkable eyes of some of Canada's wildlife species—all beautifully engraved in outstanding detail! Other coins in series include:
    • First coin: In the Eyes of the Great Horned Owl (priced at $79.95, available to order)
    • Third coin: In the Eyes of the Wolf (priced at $79.95, expected ship date of December 2017)
  • ENAMEL EFFECT! These animal eyes feature unprecedented depth of colour! An innovative enamel effect mimics the rich, glossy look of colour enamel, but with far more complexity in order to give the eyes a more life-like appearance.
  • FEATURES GLOW-IN-THE-DARK TECHNOLOGY! To complete this tribute to a nocturnal species, your coin also features glow-in-the-dark technology! Hold your coin under a light source for 30-60 seconds then view the coin in darkness, where the colourful eyes glow—as they would during a night-time encounter with limited light!

Design:

The steady, unyielding gaze of the Canada lynx has a marked intensity to it in this reverse design by Canadian artist Curtis Atwater. The close-up portrait offers a rare face-to-face encounter with a famously elusive wild cat, whose mesmerizing features are engraved in outstanding textural detail. Special emphasis is placed on the felid's eyes, thanks to the application of an innovative enamel effect that re-creates the glossy look of a traditional paint application, but with more nuanced colour variance to give these irises a more life-like appearance. The effect is enhanced by glow-in-the-dark technology, which mimics the naturally luminous effect of the nocturnal hunter's stare during a rare nighttime encounter. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Packaging:

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

Beautiful coin however where are the famous ear tufts Lynx always have?

Renee

Hello and thank you for your question! In order to make the animal's eyes as large as possible to really focus in on them we had to zoom in on the Lynx's face, which meant we had to cut off some of the ears. Thanks!

Erica (Product Team)
