This latest release in the Royal Canadian Mint's Predator Series features a fearsome engraving of a Canadian wolf lunging forward with teeth bared. Denominated $5 and with a limited mintage of just 300,000, this investment grade silver coin is sure to be popular. Around 50,000 wolves inhabit Canada and because of its intelligence, adaptability and hunting skill, the wolf can acclimate to almost any type of habitat. The distinctive Canadian minting not only shows the fine details of the wolf's thick coat and sharp teeth, but also includes added security measures. Featured are micro-engraved radial lines and a small privy mark of a maple leaf with 18 inscribed at its center. Weighing one troy ounce, each spectacular coin is minted in purest 99.99% fine silver.
