The mythical creatures rumored to roam the wilds of North America and other corners of the world are coming alive in a new series from the Royal Canadian Mint. Launched in 2020, the new Creatures of the North Series focuses on mythical beasts that have been rumored to exist in Canada for centuries now. Tales of strange creatures in the night have always haunted our imaginations, and in the province of Quebec, the loup-garou is one of the most famous legends of all.
Werewolf sightings may date back to the age of New France, but in July 1767, an article in the Gazette de Québec cautioned the public to be on the look-out for a loup-garou in the guise of a beggar. Either the creature or its legend was brought to these shores by settlers from France, where, several decades before, a werewolf "epidemic" had resulted in witch trials and executions. And a few years prior to Quebec's famous loup-garou sighting, hundreds of deaths in southern France were attributed to the Beast of Gévaudan, prompting King Louis XV to place a bounty on the werewolf's head. On the obverse of 2021 Canadian Werewolf Silver Coins, you will find a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
This portrait shows the Queen in right-profile without a crown on her head for the first time on a Canadian coin during her reign. The effigy of the Queen is surrounded by inscriptions of ELIZABETH II, 2021, D. The reverse side of 2021 Canadian Werewolf 2 oz Silver Coins comes with an image of a powerful werewolf.
