As we have come to expect from the Royal Canadian Mint, the ¾ Grey Wolf silver coin is meticulously designed and struck to quality precision. On the reverse side is the image a lone grey wolf, standing on a rock in its natural habitat, howling signifying fortitude and strength.
Along the top rim the country and date of issue are engraves and along the bottom are the words FINE SILVER ¾ ARGENT PUR, indicating the coins are struck in pure silver and weigh ¾ ounces. Below the image of the wolf are the numbers 9999 indicating the amount of pure silver content.
On the obverse side is the portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The image was created by Susan Blunt and has featured on RCM bullion coins since 2003. The denomination of 2 Dollars is indicated at the bottom.
In 2014, North American gold bullion dealers, APMEX, teamed up with the Royal Canadian Mint to produce the ¾ oz Grey Wolf Silver coins to celebrate the revival of one of the nation's endangered species.
The concept follows the success of the RCM's silver coin wildlife series that featured six coins produced bi-annually between 2011 and 2013. The RCM series included the Timber Wolf which is another name for the Grey Wolf.
However, the coins can be distinguished from one another by their weight. The Grey Wolf coins produced exclusively for APMEX have a unique weight of ¾ oz. compared with the wildlife series coins which have a weight of 1.5 oz.
In 1978, the Canis lupus, or Grey Wolf was put on the endangered species list of North America and Mexico after being hunted for years. The ancestor of the domestic dogs, the Grey Wolf has featured in tales of folklore and myth as aggressive animals although was recognized by the ancient Indians as a spiritual animal with great virtues.
Around 30% of the world's population of Grey Wolves live in Canada and extends into the United States. Although the coin represents a lone wolf, these animals tend to stay in packs. Only the most dominant male and female mate to prevent the pack becoming too large. If another wolf tries to mate they will often leave the pack in order to find a mate – a courageous decision to make given the dangers a lone wolf faces in the wilderness.
