Each coin features extraordinarily-high relief! Order your 3-coin subscription today!

Extraordinarily-high relief (EHR) goes beyond what high and even ultra-high relief techniques can accomplish and elevates the subject matter to around 6 mm. The striking visual effect of each coin in your series that becomes more of a sculpture than a simple embossing is given an exceptional brilliance with innovative proof finish, making the silver shine like never before. Each coin features a multifaceted design built out of 435 polygons on the first coin, 498 on the second, and 450 on the third, that are crafted in proof finish to make each coin sparkle like a diamond.

Receive a free collector case with your first coin to display all three “extra” high relief, pure silver coins! Subscribe today!

Special features:
  • ORDER THE 3-COIN SUBSCRIPTION TO GET $40 IN VALUE!* When you subscribe to the Multifaceted Animal Head series, you'll receive a free collector case with your first coin ($40 value). The three coins in the series are:
    • EHR Wolf (priced at $139.95)
    • EHR Grizzly Bear (priced at $139.95)
    • EHR Lynx (priced at $139.95)
  • INNOVATIVE WORLD FIRST COINING TECHNOLOGY! Each coin features an ingenious approach to coin design. These are the first proof-quality coin struck with EHR  ̶  a new term in the world of minting. EHR is defined by an impressive relief that reaches to around 6 millimeters on a coin of only 36 millimeters in diameter and 1 oz. in weight. Ultra-High Relief coins barely reach 2 mm of height and standard relief coins remain almost flat in comparison.
  • EXCEPTIONAL FROSTING! Each coin's multiple facets, composed of 435 polygons (on the first coin) to be exact, are crafted in proof finish to reflect light from various angles. The result is that each coin sparkles like a diamond. The highest quality proof finish combined with the EHR technique gives it an unequaled brilliance and sharpness, making it a world first coin of its kind. A lightly frosted background accentuates the sparkle of the central main design, giving its already dazzling subject even more emphasis. On the obverse, multiple light-relief facets provide similar luminous, reflective effect.
  • UNIQUE SCULPTING! The exceptional three-dimensionality of EHR allows each animal head to elevate mere embossing to a sculpture of each animal head. The relief is so extreme and pronounced that the modeling and tooling work had to be approached in an unorthodox manner. The engravers had to adapt their normal coin modeling procedures, CNC machining strategies and tool polishing methods to accommodate such an extreme relief.
  • UNIQUE COINS! Unlike any other, each multifaceted animal head feels alive. The innovative EHR technology transforms the imprint into an actual model.
  • AN ODE TO NATURE! Canada is known for its vast and abundant nature, often protected and well preserved. The wilderness enveloping most of our land has continuously shaped our country, our history, and our culture. The multifaceted Wolf Head highlights the connection between civilization and nature.
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATES! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.
  • LOW MINTAGE! Each coin limited to 2,500 coins worldwide.
  • ONE OZ. PURE SILVER! Each coin is crafted from one ounce of 99.99% pure silver.
  • NO GST/HST!

First coin design:

The reverse sculpture by Claude Thivierge features a multifaceted wolf head built out of 435 polygons. The three-dimensional form protrudes from the flat coin, invoking both nature and geometry in its execution. The EHR plays an integral part of the design, introducing the coin as the first of its kind in the world - sharp, brilliant and doing away with the conventional flatness of minting. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Second coin design:

The reverse sculpture by Alex Tirabasso features a multifaceted grizzly bear head built out of 498 polygons. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Third coin design:

The reverse sculpture by Traian Georgescu features a multifaceted lynx head built out of 435 polygons. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

I have been a fan of the other geometric design coins released by the RCM over the years, but these are the best yet! Little pieces of art! I literally gasped when I opened the box. I just was not expecting them to be so outstanding! Kudos to all involved.

Watching the display video of the coin was very stunning. I did not expect to see such reflection of the light. This is an amazing coin series. It's simple and direct to the focus of the coin yet still maintaining the presence of a collectible and monetary coin.
