2012 Canada Wolf Cubs Special Edition Specimen Set

In Canada, the wolf has made a comeback, occupying about 90 percent of its historic range from the dense coastal forests of British Columbia to the barren Arctic plains and the boreal woodlands of Labrador. Though born tiny, deaf, and blind, this amazing apex predator grows to become one of the most adaptable, socially complex, and eminently fascinating residents of the Canadian wilderness. The Royal Canadian Mint is proud to present the 2012 Special Edition $2 Specimen Set of Canadian coins. The finish on these superb coins combines brilliant and frosted relief over a lined background. A finish type that is unique to the Royal Canadian Mint.

The $2 coin, only offered in this set, features two young wolf pups playing amid the fresh grasses and first daffodils in a high springtime meadow. One pup raises its tiny muzzle in a prototypical howl - practicing, no doubt, for adulthood when this skill will have many uses. Its sibling gazes playfully at the howling pup, ears forward, front legs slightly bent, tail low, in a pre-pounce play stance. In the background, a winding river twists through a broad forest valley that is flanked on all sides by a vast coniferous forest.

Special Features:
- Limited-edition set, part of the Royal Canadian Mint's unique Wildlife baby series featuring baby animals, with a special edition $2 coin only found in this set.
- The finish on these superb coins combines brilliant and frosted relief over a lined background; a finish type that is unique to the Royal Canadian Mint.
- Each coin in this set has been individually inspected to ensure that it meets the high standards of the Royal Canadian Mint.
- This is the last Specimen Set to contain a 1 cent coin. Future Specimen Sets will no longer contain a Penny.

Packaging:
Elegant book-style packaging, with removable lens, splendidly complements these fine coins. Beauty Box features full colour portrait of two young wolf pups, the baby animal featured on the special $2 coin only found in this set.
