Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
This stunningly beautiful $20 fine silver coin presents the duality of the wolf . Two wolves are positioned chin-to-chin to illustrate the tight social bonds that exist between pack members and each wolf has fixed its gaze on the viewer. 24 karat gold and black rhodium plating perfectly splits this engraved image into two opposite but complementary halves.
For centuries, the highly intelligent and social species has been feared and unfairly maligned as the villain in children’s stories. Yet it is that same hunting instinct that makes the elusive wolf an essential part of its ecosystem, where it helps maintain the balance between flora and fauna, predator and prey. Mintage is extremely limited to only 4,500. GST/HST exempt.
The circular reverse design by Claude Thivierge features a contrasting “yin and yang”-like representation of the grey wolf (Canis lupus). Two wolves are positioned chin-to-chin to illustrate the tight social bonds that exist between pack members and each wolf has fixed its gaze on the viewer. Gold and black rhodium plating perfectly splits this engraved image into two opposite but complementary halves. The obverse features the gold-plated effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
Despite its name, the grey wolf’s fur can range from shades of grey and brown to white or even black. You might find a mix of all these colours in a wolf pack.
Wolves are territorial and they hunt together in packs — in fact, they spend most of their lives in the company of other wolves. Their family bonds are tight, and while they use a wide range of vocalizations and body language to communicate, wolves are known for emitting howls that can be heard several kilometres away.
