This stunning new full three-dimensional Wolf coin is the fifth and final coin in the most revolutionary series ever issued by the Royal Canadian Mint. Since the first coins of the world were struck more than 2500 years ago, coin designs have been confined to two-dimensional coin blanks and the limited relief of traditional minting. With this new series, the Royal Canadian Mint brings some of Canada’s most iconic animals to life with a full three-dimensional sculpture rising up from the surface of the coin. The coin has a $100 face value and weighs just over ten ounces of pure silver. The striking 3D wolf is further enhanced by an overlay of 24 karat gold.
In addition to its artistic beauty, collectability of this revolutionary coin is further heightened by an extremely low limited mintage of just 1,200 pieces. When the first coin in this series was launched in November of 2016, the Grizzly Bear coin sold out from the RCM within hours of being released, with additional coins in the series also selling out quickly from the mint.
The reverse design by renowned Canadian sculptor Karl Lansing captures a remarkable 360 degree image featuring the wolf. Its head is lifted towards the sky to release that iconic howl.
Your coin will come presented on a round wooden pedestal and protected by a domed cover that allows the coin to be proudly displayed as a work of art. As a pure silver coin produced by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is GST / HST exempt.
