That is the magic of the northern lights, and if youve ever experienced them firsthand, you know this incredible phenomenon is really beyond words; shimmering waves of light that can leave you breathless. And if youve never seen the northern lights, the captivating colours on this pure silver hologram coin might just inspire you to venture north to watch them live. Out there, standing in the dark, Earths great lightshow may take on a whole new dimension if the shimmering ribbons of light are accompanied by the sound of howling wolves. Its one of the most hauntingly beautiful experiences that the wilderness has to offer; a spectacle so mystifying that generations of sky gazers, adventurers and nature lovers have ventured into the darkness, and long pondered if wolves do indeed howl at the light. At night, in the dead of winter, light and sound travel much farther, aided by the clear, crisp air. If theres more light, wolves can also be more active; and as their pack disperses in search of food, they will be calling to each other. Their howls will be amplified by the clear, crisp air, just like the northern lights; and the result for the lucky viewer is a hauntingly beautiful symphony of colour and sound.

As a collector, I found the hologram effects to be a bit lacking. I was expecting more from such a pricey coin. Other than that, the overall representation of the howling wolf and the Northern Lights is very eye-catching. Customers found this review helpful. No Cons-the Perfect Coin. The holographic effect is stunning. Just in time as it turns out. I cannot understand why some complain about the poor holographic effect. My coin is flamboyant under natural and artificial light. Maybe there is some spread during minting. The value and quality of this coin is (to me) much higher than that of any colored one. I hope that it will not tarnish for a long time, because I fear that the oxidation will destroy the effect. The only con: poor artistic image of the wolf. The front legs seem out of proportion (too thin). Hard To See Hologram. Beautiful design though have to hold the coin up to the light to really see the Hologram effect. A most Beautiful Coin. A Lover Of Art, Quality Driven. This is a Gift for my son. He loves wolves and this coin is perfect because not only is it a beautiful Wolf but the hologram effect of the Northern Lights is stupendous. Keep up the good work RCM. Bargain Hunter, Quality Driven. It’s a Beauty, Eh! Lovely addition to collection. After having read other comments about not being able to see the colors & knowing that it’s probably just how it was being held I took a chance and bought this coin. It’s not in-your-face color as some may have liked it to be. It’s more subtle but you can see various colors which come alive as you turn the coin. Love the wolf/northern lights theme. Comes in plastic encasement presented in a a nice little hinged box with cert. Possibly will give this as gift to a nephew. Canadian Collector, Quality Driven. Great Addition To The Col. It’s so awesome to see the shimmering Aurora Borealis as I turn the coin in the light. Another remarkable product of the Royal Canadian Mint. Hologram not as visible as in the pictur. Not sure if a quality issue but cannot get the colours as per the picture -? No, I would not recommend this to a friend. Do you have questions about this product?
