Over the past decade, the Royal Canadian Mint has lead the way among government mints with innovative coin designs and series. The RCM continues that trend with the launch of the Wild Canada series – a 6-coin series commemorating the original Canadian Wildlife series.
Each coin in this series is a reverse proof finish Silver Maple Leaf, featuring a special privy mark matching the original 6-coin Wildlife series. The Wild Canada series begins with this Wolf Privy Maple Leaf, and will continue with a Grizzly Privy, Cougar Privy, Moose Privy, Antelope Privy, and finally a Bison Privy to conclude the series.
The Royal Canadian Mint will occasionally hold back a select number of Silver Canadian Maple Leaf blanks to strike with special privy marks. These small, extra marks are used to honor something else significant to local or global culture, without drastically altering the appearance of the typical Silver Canadian Maple Leaf bullion coin.
Canadian Wildlife Series coins within the Silver Canadian Maple Leaf program were introduced in 2011 with a Timber Wolf striking. Subsequent releases in this series include the grizzly bear, cougar, moose, pronghorn antelope, and the wood bison.
On the reverse side of the 2016 Wolf Privy Silver Canadian Maple Leaf you’ll find a small wolf mark at the bottom-left of the Maple Leaf design. The micro-laser engraved maple leaf privy and radial lines are also included on this side following their introduction in 2015.
The obverse side of all coins features the unaltered image of Queen Elizabeth II. Used on Canadian coinage since 2003 in its current form, Her Majesty’s image is surrounded by engravings that include the nation of issue, her name, and the face value of the coin.
Canada’s Royal Canadian Mint was founded in 1908 during British colonial rule. The British established the mint system to process gold and silver found in the Yukon Territories. Among the major accomplishments of the mint are its production of gold bars to pay off British debt from World War I and the creation of medals for the 2016 Vancouver Olympic Games.
