Description

This 2015 large and impressive $125 Grey Fox coin weighs just over one half kilo of pure silver, and is part of a new conservation series which highlights Canada’s endangered species and our country’s rich biodiversity. With a mintage of just 500 coins, this is a high quality limited edition collectible.  As a pure silver coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint, it is GST/HST Exempt.  


The Design:

The design by Canadian artist Laurene Spino features a full-body portrait of a grey fox standing on a maple bough. This image captures the silent intensity of this extremely efficient predator. Viewed from its right side with its face turned toward the viewer, the furry fox stands poised to pounce from the bough on which it stands, its front left paw raised and ready for action. A variety of engraving and finishing techniques highlight the grey fox’s unique physical traits, including its masked eyes, dark back, tail stripe, and long legs. The left side of the image includes several branches of feathery maple leaves, underscoring the grey fox’s Canadian presence.


The Grey Fox:

The Grey Fox is the size of a small dog and has grizzled grey fur with lighter cinnamon coloured patches on its body. It also has a black tail tip, and it can have a very long bushy tail.

The Grey Fox lives in deciduous forests and marshes. Its dens are usually found in dense shrubs close to a water source but they will also use rocky areas, hollow trees, and underground burrows dug by other animals. This species will live in many types of habitat provided there is sufficient shelter and prey availability.
