Known as the timber wolf or western wolf, this wild canine is native to the wilderness and remote areas of Eurasia and North America. The gray wolf is the second most specialized member of the genus Canis, behind only the Ethiopian wolf.
The obverse of the 2017 ¾ oz Silver Canadian Grey Wolf 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.
On the reverse of the 2017 ¾ oz Silver Canadian Grey Wolf 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.
The Grey Wolf Series of silver coins from the Royal Canadian Mint debuted with the release of this 2015 ¾ oz Silver Canadian Grey Wolf Coin. The RCM plans to release a total of four different designs in the years to come, with one annual release scheduled.
All 2017 ¾ oz Silver Canadian Wolf Moon Coins in this listing from Silver.com are perfect specimens according to the NGC. Coins in Mint State 70 condition have full, original mint luster and a complete lack of flaws on the surface areas of the coin.
The Royal Canadian Mint is Canada’s official sovereign mint, and it was founded in 1908 during the country’s push toward independence. It operates its original facility in Ottawa, as well as a secondary facility opened in Winnipeg in 1980.
