And the engraving is outstanding, too - look at that minute detail!

Amber eyes peer out of the darkness as night falls on the Canadian wilderness. With its combined use of glow-in-the-dark technology and colorful enamel effect, this third and final coin in the Animal Eyes series re-creates the luminous gaze of a legend of the wild, Canis lupus, the North American wolf, whose keen eyesight facilitates any crepuscular activity.

WolfA Stunning Artistic Design, Accented by Two Complimentary Technologies!
The amber-colored eyes convey the wolf’s intelligence and strength in this reverse design by Canadian artist Curtis Atwater. Complex engraving captures the wild canine’s likeness in remarkable detail, whether it’s the fine whiskers protruding from its muzzle or the textured appearance of the thick fur. Special emphasis is placed on the eyes, where an enamel effect mimics the glossy look of a traditional paint application but with far more color variation, which gives each iris a more life-like appearance. The design is further enhanced by glow-in-the-dark technology, which evokes the luminous glow of the wolf’s eyes when encountered in low-light conditions.

The 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.

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

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.

Technology Note - Enamel
The vibrant hues of the animal's eyes are a result of the Royal Canadian Mint’s patented enamel technology. This proprietary technique applies deep, rich, semi-opaque colors to the coin, while the glaze over these hues enhances the effect of real enamel.

Glow in the Dark Photoluminescent Technology
Photo-luminescent technology transports the viewer into the scene. The full effect of the coin is best viewed in the dark after placing it directly under a light source for at least 60 seconds. Natural daylight and halogen light work best, followed by incandescent bulbs. Fluorescent light may take the longest to charge the coin.
