SECOND COIN! A heart-warming take on the shy fox! Order today!

One of Canada’s most common mammals, the fox’s true character is a far cry from the trickster of fairy tales and fables. It is timid, secretive and quite nervous by nature. When survival isn’t at stake, the fox can finally relax. And when it does, its displays of affection are those of a peaceful, social creature that loves to groom, play and cuddle as much as its domesticated relative, “man’s best friend.” From a parent’s love to a bonding pair, our Canadian Fauna series is a continuing look at how Canada’s wildlife shows affection in the most familiar (and adorable) ways! The second coin in the series travels to central Canada to catch a glimpse of affectionate foxes cuddling beneath a sunset sky.

Design:

Designed by W. Allan Hancock, your coin features a tender moment between two red foxes (Vulpes vulpes). Cuddled at the base of an engraved tree, the nuzzling foxes is surrounded by colourful wildflowers and greenery. A dramatic sunset colours the sky above the Canadian forest meadow. The reverse includes the year “2019” and the word “CANADA” struck incuse. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

“I am constantly inspired by the natural beauty of Canada and the wildlife that is found here. With every painting I try to connect with the viewer, to convey that inspiration and encourage their own appreciation of the natural world.”

— W. Allan Hancock, Wildlife Artist

Did you know…
  • An opportunistic feeder, the fox uses its sight, smell and hearing to hunt. It can easily pick up the scent of a hidden nest, and it can even hear the twitch of a rabbit’s ear! In the past, it was reviled as a “chicken thief,” but the fox has built up goodwill with farmers who value its appetite for crop-busting rodents and insects.
  • It doesn’t live in a hierarchal pack like the wolf or dog. Instead, the fox may opt to live in a small, tight-knit group, but it almost always hunts alone. It doesn’t “woof” like a dog, either; its many calls include a high-pitched warning bark, a nighttime howl, a baby-like cry and a chuckling sound (gekker) made whenever the fox is excited or nervous.
  • Canada is home to four fox species, including the red (or coloured) fox featured on this coin. Vulpes vulpes isn’t universally red coloured (there are several different colour variations), but it is found all across Canada, except for coastal British Columbia and parts of the Arctic Archipelago.
  • A male adult fox is a “dog” or “reynard,” while the female is a “vixen.”
  • A (near) Canada-wide species. Features the red fox, an animal found all across Canada, save for coastal B.C. and parts of the Arctic Archipelago.

Packaging:

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