"Timber wolf" is a common name for a wolf residing in a forested area; in reality, wolves are one of the most wide-ranging land animals, and in Canada, they inhabit a variety of habitats, from forests to grasslands, and even tundra. DESIGN & ARTIST On the coin's reverse, RCM engraver Eric Boyer has created a powerful three-quarter portrait of the timber wolf, with strength emanating from its raised likeness. Gazing intently towards the right, the timber wolf's features-its eyes, ears and snout-are prominently featured and artfully accentuated by Extraordinarily High Relief (EHR) engraving, while the field's high-shine finish directs light back onto the wolf's form. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. PACKAGING Each coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box.
