A cougar walks along the shoreline of the Pacific Coast. Snow is rare here, but when it does fall, the effect is pure magic, a wondrous scene of enigmatic shadows and radiant light that comes to life with the exceptional colouring techniques on this coin. View the coin in the dark, and parts of the scene begin to glow. The moon and stars shine, and the water and snow glimmer as if touched by moonlight! First coin in a NEW series featuring animals under the magical glow of moonlight, stunning designs that capture all the mystery of a full moon that has fascinated people for millennia.

Canadian artist Jan Poynter has combined quintessential elements of the Pacific Coast to create this fictional scene of a cougar approaching a stream on a snow-covered shoreline. Moonlight defines the cougar's silhouette, and dances on the water and snow. The majestic cat is looking towards the right, as if it has spotted its quarry in the distance. Behind the cougar, subtle shades of blue and gold paint a silent, snow-covered landscape of islands rising up from the calm waters of an inlet. A mountain range spans the horizon, its peaks visible in the moonlight. The moon also illuminates the clouds, and stars fill the gaps between them.

Exquisitely engraved with every detail beautifully enhanced with colour, plus an innovative glow-in-the-dark technology that washes the scene with moonlight, the moon, stars, water and snow shine when viewed in the dark! A work of art that will captivate anyone; a unique keepsake that wildlife and nature enthusiasts, as well as, star and moon gazers will cherish.
