Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
This $20 fine silver coin uses genuine diamond dust to create the sparkle of the snow-covered landscape. The foreground features an engraved Arctic Wolf set against the tranquil beauty of a region known for its harsh climate. Mintage is limited to 5,000. As a pure silver coin struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is GST/HST exempt.

The arctic wolf 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.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Maurade Baynton 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-creates 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.
