Introducing the first double-concave piedfort coin: an exquisite collectible that is twice the thickness of a
typical fine silver coin and features both a concave-shaped reverse and obverse. Ursus arctos is the first
of two wildlife species that command attention in this groundbreaking series of coins, whose inwardcurved
surfaces are a remarkable feat of numismatic engineering.
The concave-shaped reverse provides a uniquely shaped canvas for this wildlife portrait by artist Denis
Mayer Jr. In a Canadian forest, two wolves (Canis lupus) pause at the edge of a cliff that gives them a
commanding view of their territory. One wolf keeps a watchful eye on what lies below while the other
has turned its head to face the viewer, bringing its facial features into full view. The finely engraved
forest setting is enhanced with various finishes that add a sense of depth to the inward-curving design,
which also includes the word “CANADA”, the year “2019” and the face value “100 DOLLARS”. The
equally concave-shaped obverse features a concentric pattern of maple leaves and the effigy of Her
Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
A double-concaved piedfort coin. Struck on a specially
designed blank, each coin features a curved-shaped
reverse and obverse.
