2022 Canada $250 Timber Wolf Extraordinarily High Relief Pure Gold (No Tax)

With its intelligent eyes and sharp ears, the timber wolf’s profile is instantly recognizable—and when rendered in Extraordinarily High Relief (EHR), those imposing features will certainly evoke feelings of reverence and awe. The third (and final) 99.99% pure gold piece in our series of EHR coins presents another exquisitely sculpted, exceptionally realistic wildlife portrait. This time, it is the timber wolf that rises up from the coin’s mirror-like surface to reach an incredible height of over 6 mm.

The timber wolf and grey wolf are the same species (Canis lupus). “Timber wolf” is a common name for a wolf residing in a forested area; in reality, wolves are one of the most wide-ranging land animals, and in Canada, they inhabit a variety of habitats, from forests to grasslands, and even tundra.

On your coin’s reverse, RCM engraver Eric Boyer has created a powerful three-quarter portrait of the timber wolf, with strength emanating from its raised likeness. Gazing intently towards the right, the timber wolf’s features—its eyes, ears and snout—are prominently featured and artfully accentuated by Extraordinarily High Relief (EHR) engraving, while the field’s high-shine finish directs light back onto the wolf’s form. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
