Product Description

A serene scene of wildlife and nature, accentuated by a clever technological touch - a large adult timber wolf walks across the frozen, snow-covered Arctic waste while surveying its territory, its paw prints wrapping front around the edge and onto the face of this meticulously engraved, intricately rendered pure silver proof beauty!

Ever vigilant, Canis lupus, the North American timber wolf, keeps a watchful eye on its territory in the winter-themed scene, where each step leaves a crisp impression in the snow … and on the coin’s edge! The third and final coin in the Nature’s Impressions series tracks the wolf, whose paw prints are indicative of an elusive hunter who always moves with purpose.

In a Mint first, the striking edge patterning features animal prints that are carefully engraved all along the coin’s edge in a continuous track, a creative tie-in to the obverse image itself - a design brought to life through precision engraving, further enhanced by the use of various finishing techniques of the proof finish. This superb wildlife portrait of an elusive wolf captures the majesty of the Great White North!

A lone wolf in the snow, howling to its pack.An Original Work of Art
This serene scene by Canadian wildlife artist Claudio D'Angelo features a side view of a large adult timber wolf (Canis lupus) in Canada’s boreal forest near the Canadian Arctic. Among the tall spruce trees, the wolf has made its way to the crest of a snow-covered hill, where it pauses to survey the frozen lake below. Its head is turned to the left, which allows a glimpse of its facial features. Throughout this winter scene, the combination of engraving and various finishing techniques adds striking depth to the design - especially the crisp impression of the wolf’s four-toed tracks, which are engraved on the coin’s edge in a continuous pattern that continues onto the face of the coin.

The Timber 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.

2017 Nature's Impressions Woodland Caribou Edge View showing Hoof PrintsThe 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.
