Green, red and golden hues highlight select maple leaves that frame the wolfs face, and provide a hint of the famously colourful transformation of Canadas beloved emblem. The wolf is the largest wild member of the canine family. It is comparable in size to a German shepherd, but with longer legs and wider paws. Canada is home to the worlds second-largest grey wolf population. Its range stretches from Labrador to British Columbia, and throughout the North. It is popularly associated with our forest wilderness, but the wolf inhabits different types of habitats: forests, deserts, plains, tundra, even mountains. The Big Bad Wolf of fairy tales and folklore has been unfairly maligned for centuries. Wolves are highly intelligent and social animals with strong family bonds; they will act aggressively if provoked or threatened, but are naturally wary of humans. Still, its always best to give a wild animal plenty of space. Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box. 99.99% pure silver.
