This coin displays a powerful image of a figure and a wolf howling together in unison, making reference to the sacred teaching of Humility. The wolf is a symbol of humility because despite its fearsome nature, it takes the well-being of its pack into consideration before its own. The wolf will bow his head in the presence of others in self defense, and when it hunts, it will not feast until all of the meat can be shared with the pack. The lack of arrogance and self-interest is integral in the understanding of humility. This one ounce coin is masterfully crafted in 99.99% pure silver with elegant selective gold plating,
