This innovative multifaceted lynx head coin uses a new extraordinarily high relief (EHR) technology to transform the coin into a three dimensional sculpture which rises about 6 mm from the field of the coin. The effect is even more striking because of the multifaceted design built out of 435 polygons that make them sparkle like a diamond. Mintage is limited to 2,500. This coin sold out from the Royal Canadian Mint within minutes of launch and is now extremely difficult to find in the secondary market. HST/GST exempt.
The Canadian Lynx is a captivating feline native to the Northern Hemisphere’s boreal forest. The lynx favors thickly forested wilderness areas. However, it will follow the food wherever it is. Due to its elusive agility and secrecy, the Canada Lynx has been nicknamed “the shadow of the forest”.
