Native to the boreal forests that stretch from Yukon to Newfoundland, the Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis) is one of the most common wild cats in Canada. Yet, encounters with this stealthy, agile predator remain rare; this pure gold coin captures the beauty of Canada's elusive feline in a forceful show of strength.

Your ultra-high relief coin uses the imagery of the Canada Lynx and makes full use of the ultra-high relief allowing the lynx's head to have a more sculptural aspect to it. Once you see it in your hand, you will make this coin the centerpiece of your coin collection.

Design: Designed by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc, this coin offers a close-up portrait of the elusive hunter, the Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis). The lynx's long, shaggy winter coat is rendered in exceptional detail, from the black tips of its beard-like fur to the fine whiskers that stretch out on either side of the face. Despite its elusive nature, this predator's fierce gaze holds steady as it vocalises its displeasure, holding its jaw open in mid-roar to reveal sharp teeth. The ears, with whisker-like tufts rising up from the tips, stand pointed as though they first detected the intrusion that drew the lynx's attention in the direction of the viewer.
