This stunning 2018 $20 fine silver coin pays tribute to The Howling Wolf, one of Canada’s wide range of nocturnal animals.  Swiftly travelling across Canada’s wild landscapes, the wolf makes its presence known when it releases its unmistakable howl into the night. This is the 3rd coin in the series that explores Canada at night, using selective black rhodium plating to set the mood for a moonlit serenade. The coin weighs just over one ounce of pure silver, and has a limited mintage of 7,000 coins.  As a pure silver coin struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is HST/GST exempt.

The Design:

The reverse design by Canadian artist Claude Thivierge travels deep into one of Canada’s forests, to catch a glimpse of a species whose haunting cry defines the call of the wild. Black rhodium plating sets the tone for a nighttime encounter in a clearing, where, viewed in three-quarter profile, a lone wolf raises its head to the sky and releases its howl into the winter night. Behind the wolf, the coin’s polished silver surface is left unplated to mimic the light of the engraved full moon, which faintly illuminates the landscape below, and the wolf from behind. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
