A wolf's howl is an intrinsic part of nature's soundtrack in Canada's forest and tundra landscapes. This distinctive call can be a rallying cry to pack members, just as it can deliver a warning to rivals who dare enter its territory; but to human ears, the haunting chorus only adds to the lonesome mystique of the wild canine, which is featured on the sculpted reverse of this fine silver coin.

Designed by big game sculptor Karl Lansing, your coin features a three-dimensional depiction of a species whose cry is synonymous with the remote beauty of Canada's wilderness. Shaped like a grey wolf (Canis lupus), the silver-cast statue rises up from the coin's surface to convey the wild canine's strength as it steps across the varied terrain. The gold plating enhances the carefully sculptured details that give the statuette a life-like quality, including the varying texture of the fur and the famously strong jaw that is lifted towards the sky to release that iconic howl. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
Your coin is encapsulated and housed in a wooden display case with a black beauty box.
