The Grey Wolf is a canid species native to wild and remote parts of both Eurasia and North America. It is the largest extant member of the canid family, with males weighing upwards of 99 lbs. and females reaching 85 lbs. Wolves in the wild are apex predators, with only humans and tigers (Eurasia) posing a serious threat to its existence.
2015 ¾ oz Silver Canadian Grey Wolf coins are the first release in a planned series of four coins from the Royal Canadian Mint. Subsequent designs, scheduled for one release annually, will feature new reverse designs depicting the wolf in a different manner.
On the reverse of the 2015 ¾ oz Silver Canadian Grey Wolf you’ll find a large wolf standing atop a rocky cliff, with treetops visible in the background as it howls out in the distance. The engravings on this face read “Canada 2015” above, “.9999” below the design set, and “Fine Silver ¾ OZ Argent Pur” in the lower rim.
The obverse of all Canadian currency features the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s portrait is captured in right-profile relief, and includes simple engravings of “Elizabeth II” above and “2 Dollars” below.
Royal Canadian Mint products are among the most coveted in the world. Previous Grey Wolf designs from the mint have sold well among numismatists, and the 2015 ¾ oz. Silver Canadian Grey Wolf performed admirably as well, leaving low availability for these coins to date.
