In 2015 the Royal Canadian Mint issued a series called "Majestic Animals".
Each one was a 2015 $20 CAD, weighting 31.39g (1.01oz) with 99.99% silver purity and Colored Proof finish.
I have already shown the first one in this post: https://steemit.com/steemsilvergold/@ronaldoavelino/459-canadian-animals
Now I will show you the fifth and last coin of the series: "Imposing Alpha Wolf".
Its mintage was 6,498 units and the issue price was $99.95 CAD.
Guardian of its territory, the wolf (Canis lupus) is a fearless hunter that relies on its remarkable intelligence, its keen senses, and a pack mentality to maintain its reputation as an apex predator.
It also plays an important role in the biodiversity of the remote areas it inhabits, from Labrador to British Columbia and north.
The reverse image by Canadian artist Maurade Baynton features a lone wolf (Canis lupus) rendered in striking detail, which affords us a unique close-up view of the wolf’s characteristics.
Here, our fearless hunter is perched on a rocky slope and holds its steely gaze as it surveys its remote territory and the horizon beyond the image field.
The application of selective colouring allows the viewer to glimpse the wolf’s fine features and its handsomely coloured fur that allows this fearless carnivore to blend in with its surroundings.
Behind the wolf, a mountain range looms over the river that winds through the forest valley below, with tall timbers that only add to the majesty of this natural setting.
The obverse shows the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II facing right, designed by Susanna Blunt.
