Known official as canis lupus, the grey wolf is the largest canine species on the North American continent. Though its range once spread throughout much of the northern United States and Canada, today only 30% of the grey wolf population in the world is found in Canada, with more in the United States.
All 2017 ¾ oz Canadian Silver Wolf Moon Coins in this listing from Silver.com are certified by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation. Coins with a Mint State 69 grade feature full, original mint luster and include a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. These flaws are limited to minor hairlines and minuscule contact marks.
The Early Release designation is reserved for coins that arrive at the NGC or an approved third-party facility within the first 30 days of the coin’s set release date as established by the Royal Canadian Mint.
On the obverse of the Silver Canadian Grey Wolf Moon Coin includes the right-profile image of Queen Elizabeth II, as created in 2003 by Canadian artist Susanna Blunt. Her portrait is featured on all Canadian currency, and this design was rolled out on Canadian coins starting in 2004.
The reverse of the 2017 ¾ oz Silver Canadian Grey Wolf Moon Coin is the image of a lone wolf sitting on the top of a rocky outcrop. A large, oversized moon rises into the sky behind the wolf, outlining its body as it raises its head toward the heavens to let out its eerie howl into the night’s sky.
Royal Canadian Mint products are among the most coveted in the world. Previous Grey Wolf designs from the mint have sold well among numismatists. The official sovereign mint of Canada, the Royal Canadian Mint was founded in 1908 in Ottawa and expanded in 1980 to include a facility in Winnipeg.
