FEATURES DIAMOND GLITTER! Recreates the light-reflecting qualities of coloured snow and ice! Order today!

The arctic wolf (Canis lupus arctos) is well suited to winters in Canada's Far North, thanks in part to a double-layer coat that insulates it against the cold. The distinctive colouring of its pelt provides effective camouflage and allows our wolf to blend in with its surroundings on this fine silver coin, where diamond glitter re-creates the sparkle of the snow-covered landscape.

Hold it in your hand and turn it slowly and watch how the diamond glitter catches the light! Order today!

Special features:
  • THIRD COIN IN GLISTENING NORTH SERIES! This is the third coin in the Glistening North series that combines technology and art!
  • DIAMOND GLITTER! Selective use of diamond glitter adds an intensely glittering effect on your coin that recreates the light-reflecting qualities of daylight snow and ice and the colours they create. A dusting of fine diamond particles was carefully applied to your coin to ensure an even layering over the select design elements.
  • NEVER LOSES SPARKLE! The dazzling effect on your coin is sealed to protect it from the elements so that your coin never loses its sparkle!
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins. Most of these are serialized certifications, meaning that each certificate is given a unique number, starting at 1.

  • LOW MINTAGE: Only 5,000 coins will be made worldwide.

Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Maurade Baynton, your coin artfully combines detailed engraving, selective colour and a diamond glitter element to capture a serene moment in Northern Canada. Lying on the frozen ground, an arctic wolf takes a moment to rest its weary head next to its forepaws. This northern hunter is engraved in magnificent detail to capture the uniqueness of its features—including the long fur that keeps it insulated against winter's chill. Behind the wolf, engraving adds texture to the trees that surround it, while the application of soft colours re-create the hues and shadows of fading daylight. While the landscape slumbers beneath a thick blanket of snow, a sealed layer of fine diamond particles re-creates the effect of snow sparkle on this enchanting winter day in the North.

Packaging:

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

Coin was nice looking, but unfortunately had scratch marks on the obverse. Very rare I believe to see this on a coin from the mint, so this does not distract me from buying more coins. Mint was very good about having the coin returned for a full refund. The process was quick and easy. Will continue to purchase from the mint, as the artwork and craftsmanship are exceptional.

I was expecting a little more sparkle in the "diamond" snow and a little subtler blue in the background but overall, this is a beautifully carved coin and I would certainly recommend it.

It's not often that a coin looks like the pictures in the descriptive literature, but this is one of those times. Very nice! I do wished the diamond dust 'snow' had more glisten.
