Ever vigilant, Canis lupus keeps a watchful eye on its territory in the winter-themed reverse, where each step leaves a crisp impression in the snow, and on the coin's edge. The third coin in the Nature's Impressions series tracks the wolf, whose paw prints are indicative of an elusive hunter who always moves with purpose.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Claudio D'Angelo features a side view of a wolf (Canis lupus) in Canada's boreal forest. Among the tall spruce trees, the wolf has made its way to the crest of a snow-covered hill, where it pauses to survey the frozen lake below. Its head is turned to the left, which allows a glimpse of its facial features. Throughout this winter scene, the combination of engraving and various finishing techniques adds striking depth to the design, especially the crisp impression of the wolf's four-toed tracks, which are also engraved on the coin's edge in a continuous pattern.

THIRD AND FINAL COIN in a series featuring engraved animal prints all along the coin's edge in a continuous pattern, an unconventional tie-in to the traditional wildlife portrait on the reverse.
