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!

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.
