Special edition Maple Leaf: Howling Wolf
Fans of the Maple Leaf will most certainly regard the Call of the Wild series as a welcome addition to their collection of gold coins. This stunning coin features a detailed illustration of the wolf after which the coin is named. Canadian artist Pierre Leduc designed the coin to feature the wolf in his most characteristic pose: howling. A backdrop of soundwaves complete the picture. In the wild a wolf’s howl is used as a means of communication to keep the pack together as well as a signal of impending danger.

A notable feature of the Howling Wolf coin is its purity of 999.99/1000 gold, making it the purer than the standard Maple Leaf gold coins. The small maple leaf hallmark, now a standard feature on all Maple Leaf coins, can be found beneath the wolf illustration. As is the case with all Royal Canadian Mint coins, the flipside of the Howling Wolf holds the official portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
