Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
This striking pure silver coin captures the beauty of Canada's elusive Lynx in a forceful show of strength. Native to the boreal forests that stretch from Yukon to Newfoundland, the Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis) is one of the most common wild cats in Canada. Yet, encounters with this stealthy, agile predator remain rare. The use of multiple finishes and ultra-high relief techniques provide added depth, and further showcase the combined craftsmanship and artistry that have produced this intense coin design.

The reverse image by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc offers a close-up portrait of the elusive hunter, the Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis). The lynx's long, shaggy winter coat is rendered in exceptional detail, from the black tips of its beard-like fur to the fine whiskers that stretch out on either side of the face. Despite its elusive nature, this predator's fierce gaze holds steady as it vocalises its displeasure, holding its jaw open in mid-roar to reveal sharp teeth. The ears, with whisker-like tufts rising up from the tips, stand pointed as though they first detected the intrusion that drew the lynx's attention in the direction of the viewer.

The coin has a weight of 30.76 grams (just under 1 ounce), and a diameter of just over 36mm. Mintage is limited to just 6,000 pieces worldwide. As a pure silver coin, this item is HST/GST exempt.
