Amber eyes peer out of the darkness as night falls on the Canadian wilderness. With its combined use of glow-in-the-dark technology and colourful enamel effect, this third and final coin in the Animal Eyes series re-creates the luminous gaze of a legend of the wild, Canis lupus, whose keen eyesight facilitates any crepuscular activity.

The amber-coloured eyes convey the wolf's intelligence and strength in this reverse design by Canadian artist Curtis Atwater. Complex engraving captures the wild canine's likeness in remarkable detail, whether it's the fine whiskers protruding from its muzzle or the textured appearance of the thick fur. Special emphasis is placed on the eyes, where an enamel effect mimics the glossy look of a traditional paint application but with far more colour variation, which gives each iris a more life-like appearance. The design is further enhanced by glow-in-the-dark technology, which evokes the luminous glow of the wolf's eyes when encountered in low-light conditions. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

THIRD AND FINAL coin in the Animal Eyes series, which brings you face-to-face with Canadian wildlife species known for their remarkable eyesight!
