WolfAn Original Work of Art
The design, created by Canadian wildlife artist Pierre Leduc, is an original work of art. Using different finishes to enhance the expert engraving, Royal Canadian Mint engravers have faithfully rendered a lone grey wolf in exceptionally fine detail. This right-side profile emphasizes the textures on the wolf’s furry neck, its pointed ears, and its facial features. Possessing keen senses, the intelligent animal has fixed its steely, determined gaze upon something in the distance just beyond the reverse image field; this allows the viewer to get a close view of the wolf’s expression as it stands with its tongue slightly protruding and its mouth open to reveal a row of teeth along its lower jaw. The overall design boasts a remarkable combination of artistry and craftsmanship as the wolf’s meticulously engraved fur lends the image a sense of dimension and depth, in a way that the viewer can easily imagine the softness of it to the touch.

The Grey Wolf
A lone wolf in the snow, howling to its pack. 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!
