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.

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