Subscriptions for this magical “Animals in the Moonlight” $30 glow-in-the-dark fine silver coin series are completely sold out from the Royal Canadian Mint, and the first coin in the series sold out from the RCM on the first day of issue. With the second coin in the series now being released, we are pleased to release our own last few samples of Coin #1 to be able to provide the chance to own the entire four coin set still at the official issue price. When you order this subscription, the Cougar and Lynx coins will be sent to you beginning of April, with the Orca to follow in July and the Grey Horned Owl in October, 2017. Each coin is guaranteed to remain at the official issue price of $189.95. As pure silver coins issued by the Royal Canadian Mint, all four coins are HST / GST exempt.

This “Animals in the Moonlight” collection follows the glow-in-the-dark Moonlight Fireflies and Northern Lights Wolf coins, both of which sold out immediately and appreciated significantly in the secondary market. The mintage of just 4,000 coins for this series has been maintained, adding to its scarcity and collectability. Coin expert Steven Bromberg has highlighted this coin series as one of his top picks, both for artistic appeal and for future value.

Using a large 54 mm two ounce fine silver format with a $30 face value, each remarkable design comes to life in the dark as the moon or sunset imagery luminesces to create a breathtaking image of wildlife in a night time setting of natural beauty. Using newly developed technology, the glow effect is appears in full colour with variable intensity. The resulting effect creates a glow from the moon on the water, adds a glimmer on the newly fallen snow, and adds a twinkle to the stars. The effect occurs after placing the coin in a light source for 30 to 60 seconds, then bringing it into the dark to experience the scene of enigmatic shadows and radiant light. To view the coin with an immediate intense glow effect even in a lighted room, a black light flashlight will be provided with coin #4 as a bonus for purchasing the complete series.

The first coin design presents a cougar approaching a stream on a snow-covered shoreline. Moonlight defines the cougar’s silhouette, and dances on the water and snow. The majestic cat is looking towards the right, as if it has spotted its quarry in the distance. Behind the cougar, subtle shades of blue and gold paint a silent, snow-covered landscape of islands rising up from the calm waters of an inlet. A Pacific coast mountain range spans the horizon, its peaks visible in the moonlight. The moon also illuminates the clouds, and stars fill the gaps between them.

The second coin design presents a quintessential scene of log cabins in the northern forest with a lynx hiding among the trees nearby. A full moon dominates the sky while a bonfire burns in a clearing below. The perspective gives the viewer the impression that they are approaching the cabins through the trees and have suddenly come upon a lynx that has quite possibly been there undetected for some time. The lynx is immediately recognizable by its housecat-like face, distinctive ear tufts, and pronounced facial ruff. Its massive forepaw is raised as if the lynx was about to move on, but has decided to stop to examine this stranger who has brought all this activity into its woods. The lynx gazes directly at the viewer, confident and unafraid; as if it was its decision to allow itself to be seen.

On the third coin,

When you purchase this four coin subscription, you are guaranteed to get all four coins at the original issue price, even if the market value goes up. The first and second coin will be sent to you right away at the issue price of $189.95 for each. The additional two coins will be released in July and October, and will be sent out to you and charged at the issue price as they are officially released.
