The Canadian Wildlife Series ran from 2011 to 2013 and featured six distinct designs.

The Royal Canadian Mint depicted the wolf, grizzly bear, cougar, moose, pronghorn antelope, and the wood bison.
All 2018 1 oz Wood Bison Privy Silver Canadian Maple Leaf Reverse Proof Coins in this listing are near-perfect specimens. A PF69 certification indicates a proof coin with full, original mint luster and a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Examples of acceptable flaws, in this case, include minuscule contact marks or hairlines.
The included Early Release label in the slab from the NGC means the coins arrived within a certain timeframe. The NGC issues the ER label to coins that arrived within the first 30 days of their release from the Royal Canadian Mint.
On the obverse of 2018 1 oz Wood Bison Privy Silver Canadian Maple Leaf Coins is the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is depicted here in right-profile relief without a crown on her head.
