Description

From mountains to plains, forests to tundra, Canada's wilderness is home to an incredible diversity of life; it is a place of perpetual beauty, where discoveries and unexpected encounters can provide soul-stirring moments of tranquility and reflection. This fine silver coin journeys north as the Reflections of Wildlife series concludes its celebration of Canada's natural beauty, and the contemplation it inspires.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Maurade Baynton features a beautifully-engraved wildlife portrait of an Arctic fox (Vulpes lagopus) on its journey across the ice and snow of Canada's Far North. Kept warm by its dense winter coat, the fox has an almost pensive expression as it stops at the water's edge; there it stands, quietly hovering over its reflection in the rippled water, which is masterfully rendered through the use of careful finishing techniques.

Finely-detailed engraving gives the image a life-like quality while special finishing techniques enhance the reflection seen on the water's surface.
