Silver.com will ship these coins in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and in their mint-sealed packaging.
The Howling Wolf Gold Coin was the first one to be released in the new “Call of the Wild” series. In the Canadian wilderness, the howl of a wolf can be heard from miles away. These animals use their howls to communicate with one another over vast distances to warn intruders who enter their territory and to call their young pups back home.
On the obverse side of the 2014 1 oz Gold Canadian Howling Wolf coin series is the image of a bold wolf, its mouth wide open and bellowing a menacing howl. The lines across the coin represent the reverberating sound of the wolf’s howl as it moves into the distance. Above the wolf’s head is the word “Canada,” while the purity, metal content, and weight of the coin are engraved below.
The reverse side of the coin includes the iconic portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The image features the Queen in a right-facing profile pose with a pearl necklace and earrings. Above Her Majesty’s head, the words “Elizabeth II” are engraved. Below the image of the Queen, the face value and year of minting are engraved on the coin.
The Royal Canadian Mint was established in 1908 by Great Britain to help process and refine the gold discovered in the Yukon Territories at the turn of the 20th century. Over time, the Royal Canadian Mint has accomplished feats such as producing the vast majority of gold bars used by Great Britain to pay off World War I debts and bullion products with the highest purity in the world.
