Known officially as canis lupus, the grey wolf is the largest canine species on the North American continent. Though its range once spread throughout much of the northern United States and Canada, today only 30% of the grey wolf population in the world is found in Canada, with more in the United States.
The obverse of the Canadian Silver Grey Wolf Coin includes the right-profile image of Queen Elizabeth II, as created in 2003 by Canadian artist Susanna Blunt. Her portrait is featured on all Canadian currency, and this design was rolled out on Canadian coins starting in 2004.
On the reverse of the 2017 oz Canadian Silver Grey Wolf Coin is the image of a lone wolf sitting on the top of a rocky outcrop. A large, over-sized moon rises into the sky behind the wolf, outlining its body as the wold raises its head toward the heavens to let out its eerie howl into the nights sky.
