The largest and most powerful of Canada's big cats, the cougar (Puma concolor) is a master of camouflage in the Canadian wilderness. Its remarkably long tail helps it maintain a graceful balance as it steps sure-footed over the terrain, while its vision and hearing are perfectly adapted to the nocturnal hunt. This selectively gold-plated fine silver coin pays homage to a secretive species, through a uniquely shaped embellishment that conveys its formidable stealth and strength.

Designed by Canadian big game sculptor Karl Lansing, your coin offers a sculptural celebration of an elusive hunter in the wild. Uniquely shaped to resemble a cougar (Puma concolor), this silver, gold-plated embellishment rises up from the coin's surface for a stunning, multi-dimensional collecting experience. The cougar's muscular appearance is on full display as it slinks close to the ground, its long tail gently curved behind it. While the paused movement belies the cougar's ability to pounce with lightning-fast speed, it does allow for a rare view of this secretive species' features, including finer details such as the texture of its fur.
Your coin is encapsulated and housed in a wooden display case with a black beauty box.
