LOWER MINTAGE THAN PREVIOUS COINS IN THE SERIES! Your coin is enchanced with wolf paw prints along the edge! Order today!

Ever vigilant, Canis lupus keeps a watchful eye on its territory, which it routinely patrols by padding swiftly and silently across varied terrain. Oftentimes, tracks left in the snow or mud are the only proof of this wild canine's passage; its single-track impressions are indicative of an efficient (if elusive) hunter who is built for long journeys and always moves with purpose.

Like man's best friend, the wolf is a nimble digitigrade—it moves or stands on its toes rather than its entire foot. Large paws allow for an even distribution of weight with every step, while slightly webbed toes allow for easier movement over deep snow and in water. Its non-retractable claws provide grip to ensure its agility, even as it pursues prey with other pack members, who conserve their own energy in the snow by stepping into impressions made by the wolf in front of them.

An ideal coin for someone who enjoys wolves! Order today!

Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Claudio D'Angelo, your coin features a side view of a wolf (Canis lupus) in Canada's boreal forest. Among the tall spruce trees, the wolf has made its way to the crest of a snow-covered hill, where it pauses to survey the frozen lake below. Its head is turned to the left, which allows a glimpse of its facial features. Throughout this winter scene, the combination of engraving and various finishing techniques adds striking depth to the design—especially the crisp impression of the wolf's four-toed tracks, which are also engraved on the coin's edge in a continuous pattern. The reverse includes the engraved word "CANADA", the year "2018" and the face value "20 DOLLARS". 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 graphic beauty box.

Too Shallow Prints on the Edge

2

As for the Polar Bear paw prints on the edge issue, the paw prints for the wolf coin are too shallow and barely visible on the dull edge. Paw prints should be deeper and the edge more finished. Edge is rather crude looking. The reverse of the coin ( wolf itself with trees) is the nicer part of the coin.

Would have been nice if the delivery guy didn't leave the coin in the rain on the front door step. There are thieves...

Like the design. I love the wildlife coins from RCM. But quality wise this thing graded at a PR67DCAM. Not the best.

Nice detail with unique 'paw print' edging.

I like the photographic quality of this coin - a solitary wolf with full landscape. Detail is great as the individual hairs of the wolf's coat are plainly visible and the paw prints in the snow have perspective - smaller for distance. The 'paw print' edging is a nice touch, and I really like the unique two sided graphic box - nice wolf illustration outside, along with a fully illustrated interior - far more appealing than RCM's usual black box.
