A Masterwork of Technology and Wildlife Fine Art!
On this stunning tableau by Canadian artist Curtis Atwater, detailed engraving and glow in the dark technology recreate a quintessential scene of log cabins in the northern forest with a lynx hiding among the trees nearby. It is a clear winter night. 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 house cat-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 - a magical encounter that will be painfully brief before the majestic cat slips into the shadows in silence.

Photo-luminescent technology transports the viewer into the scene. For full effect, the coin is best viewed in the dark after placing it under a light source for at least 60 seconds. This enhances the ethereal quality of the wilderness at night by recreating the soft glow of a moonlit night on the snow-covered landscape below.

There are no legends on the obverse, to allow the complete majesty of the scene to shine in its full glory.

For investment-minded coin collectors, we note the low mintage limit of just 4,000 - far lower than the typical mintage of other Royal Canadian Mint silver proofs! This ensures that this two troy ounce, pure silver proof finish glow-in-the-dark coin will be difficult to locate in years to come.
