2014 Canada $20 Cougar - Perched on a Maple Tree Fine Silver (No Tax)

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 resting silently on a tree limb. The focal point of this beautifully detailed image is the cougar's intense gaze as she locks her unseen prey in her sights. Her gaze will not leave this unsuspecting target until she is upon it. Her left forepaw and muscular front arm extend down the tree limb, claws extended to ensure her grip. Her entire body curls under her as she gathers her full power to leap. Beneath the tree limb, her long tail provides the perfect counter-balance, ensuring the uncanny accuracy and distance of her leap. The image is beautifully balanced by the spray of leafy maple branches, transformed to autumnal orange, that provide the cougar with the camouflage that is so essential to her hunting success.
