Product Description

A Royal Canadian Mint innovation - real 3D! A leaping cougar or mountain lion launches its attack as it ambushes its prey! This low mintage pure silver proof uses the Mint's thermoforming technology to produce a true three dimensional coin image!

Canada’s largest wild feline is known for using the element of surprise to its advantage. Closely stalking its unsuspecting target, the secretive cougar waits discreetly for just the right moment to pounce… as it does on this pure silver coin. The Mint combines an unique printing and embossing process called thermoforming with skillful engraving to create a three dimensional mountain lion that appears to be launching itself right off the surface of the coin - to jaw dropping 3D effect!

Canada 2017 Humpback Whale Breaching 3-D Silver ProofThe design by Canadian wildlife artist and Royal Canadian Mint engraver Matt Bowen features a three-dimensional depiction of a a cougar or mountain lion (Puma concolor) in mid-leap. This shaped element is the product of a process known as thermoforming, which captures the big cat’s likeness in exceptional detail, from its long tail to the large forepaws, and the eyes that guide the hunt. Pushing off its long and muscular hind legs, the embossed cougar springs forward and seemingly leaps out of the coin! Behind it, finely detailed engraving provides an exquisite backdrop for the 3D cougar, which seems perfectly at home in the rocky, semi-open terrain. Selective color highlights the stealthy hunter by re-creating its reddish-brown fur, its green eyes, and the contrasting colors that mark the muzzle.
