2014 Canada $125 Howling Wolf Half Kilo Fine Silver (No Tax)

Wolves hunt in packs and have done so for thousands of years. The packs are territorial, "owning" regions that can be as large as hundreds of square kilometers. They traverse vast distances in their territory each day, seeking prey. Some experts believe that howling-that eerie hallmark of this unique species-is a key element of territory establishment, acting both as a warning to other packs and a call to gathering among pack members.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc presents a profile portrait of a howling wolf backed by a coniferous forest. The central feature of the image is the highly detailed right-side profile of the head of a wolf, its muzzle turned skyward and its mouth open in the wolf's familiar howling pose. Using up to four separate finishes to emphasize the texture of the wolf's coat across its face, muzzle, ears, and neck, and to bring a lifelike gleam to its haunting eye, Royal Canadian Mint engravers have lent additional beauty to the artistry of the original design. These finishes also help to deepen the sense of high relief for the fore grounded wolf, which seems ready to emerge from the background of coniferous trees against which it is set.
