Description

This 2014 $25 ultra high relief fine silver coin pays tribute to the Canadian Lynx. Native to the boreal forests that stretch from Yukon to Newfoundland-and-Labrador, the Canada lynx is one of the most common wild cats in Canada. Yet, encounters with this stealthy, agile predator remain rare. This fine silver coin captures the beauty of Canada's elusive feline in a forceful show of strength. The mintage is limited to only 7,500. As a pure silver coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint, this coin is HST/GST exempt.


The Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc, your coin offers a close-up portrait of the elusive hunter, the Canada lynx. The lynx's long, shaggy winter coat is rendered in exceptional detail, from the black tips of its beard-like fur to the fine whiskers that stretch out on either side of the face. Despite its elusive nature, this predator's fierce gaze holds steady as it vocalizes its displeasure, holding its jaw open in mid-roar to reveal sharp teeth. The ears, with whisker-like tufts rising up from the tips, stand pointed as though they first detected the intrusion that drew the lynx's attention in the direction of the viewer.
