This incredible 2 Oz Silver coin is the second of the Animals in the Moonlight series, featuring 4 wilderness scenes of a cougar, lynx, orcas and owl under the magical glow of moonlight. In this the Lynx. The coin has a Glow-in-the-Dark effect, has a Proof quality and comes in an elegant case, along with the Certificate of Authenticity. Limited mintage to 4.000 pieces worldwide. The reverse of the coin by Canadian artist Curtis Atwater recreates a quintessential scene of log cabins in the northern forest with a lynx hiding among the trees nearby. It is a clear winter night. A full moon dominates the sky while a bonfire burns in a clearing below. The perspective gives the viewer the impression that they are approaching the cabins through the trees and have suddenly come upon a lynx that has quite possibly been there undetected for some time. The lynx is immediately recognizable by its housecat-like face, distinctive ear tufts, and pronounced facial ruff. Its massive forepaw is raised as if the lynx was about to move on, but has decided to stop to examine this stranger who has brought all this activity into its woods. The lynx gazes directly at the viewer, confident and unafraid; as if it was its decision to allow itself to be seen – a magical encounter that will be painfully brief before the majestic cat slips into the shadows in silence. The obverse of the coin features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the inscriptions: CANADA the issue country, 2017 the year of issue, D·G·REGINA Dei Gratia Regina, 30 DOLLARS the face value and ELIZABETH II the name of the Queen.
