2014 Canada $20 Cougar: Atop A Mountain Fine Silver (TAX Exempt)

The cougar is one of Canada's most powerful, elusive, and beautiful predators. This silent hunter is the perfect subject for the Royal Canadian Mint's stunning new 5-coin set. Like the sleek female cougar whose life-cycle this set captures, the collection is rare and dazzling-and before you know it, it will have disappeared.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Glen Loates features a female cougar negotiating a rocky mountain pass. Viewed from her left side, the cougar is presented in full-body detail, each massive muscle in her powerful back legs, shoulders, and fore-paws finely rendered. Her long, counterbalancing tail hangs gracefully behind her and her head is lowered as she uses her exceptional vision to determine the best path through the landscape. The lower half of the image depicts the massive outcroppings of a barren mountainside. In the background of the upper half of the image we see a few scraggly pine boughs, adding visual interest to the image and balancing the lower half of the design.
