A Highly Detailed, Original Work of Art - The Call of the Wild!
Gray_Wolf_Portrait_in_The Wintry_Coniferous_Forest The howl of a wolf pack sends shivers down even the most stalwart spine. Wolves traverse vast distances in their territory each day, seeking to bring down their prey, including animals much larger than themselves, such as deer, moose and caribou! Some wildlife experts believe that their howling - that eerie calling card that is unique to this species - is a key element of territory establishment, acting both as a warning to unaffiliated wolves and a call to assemble to the members of the pack itself.

The design by Canadian artist wildlife Pierre Leduc presents a close-up profile portrait of a howling wolf in front of a coniferous forest. The ferocious canid's muzzle is turned skyward and its mouth open in the wolf’s familiar howling pose, exposing his sharp canine teeth. Using four separate finishes to emphasize the texture of the wolf’s coat across its face, muzzle, ears, and neck, and to bring a lifelike gleam to its haunting eye, Royal Canadian Mint engravers have lent additional beauty to the artistry Pierre Leduc's already fierce design. These finishes also help to further the sense of depth already imparted by the ultra high, medallic relief of the wolf in the foreground, who seems to emerge from the background of the dark, night-time forest.

WolfThe Grey Wolf
It's a true thrill to wildlife lovers when they catch a glimpse of the mythic wolf in the wild! Although they were held in high esteem for eons by Native Americans because of their spirits, wolves have been eradicated throughout most their range in North America, partly by hunters for trophies, and partly by ranchers as pests. However, wolves have been making a comeback recently and have been reintroduced to several locations, including national parks. Wolves play an important role by preying on big game animals and helping to control their population, including eliminating aged and diseased animals. Though they hunt in packs, wolves do not view humans as prey.

The largest member of the canine family, the Grey Wolf varies in color from grizzled gray or black to pure white. This animal tends to live, travel and hunt in a pack, which usually includes the alpha mother and father, their pups and several younger animals. Grey Wolves develop close relationships and strong social bonds. They often demonstrate deep affection for other members of their pack, and may even sacrifice themselves to protect the family unit!
