2018 F.R. $20 CANADIAN HOWLING WOLF PR70 MATTE LTD 100
 
This is the third coin released in the Nocturnal by Nature series of Black Rhodium layered coins from the Royal Canadian Mint. This series of matte finish proof coins are the first and only rhodium layered coins in the world. They were issued to showcase the Royal Canadian Mints advanced design and world beating technology.
 
They are minted from just over one ounce of 99.99% pure silver. Then the coin has been selectively layered in black rhodium. They have a high legal tender face value of $20 and an incredible low mintage of just 7,000 coins. The unique Black rhodium matte finish sets the tone for a nighttime encounter in a clearing, where, viewed in three-quarter profile, a wolf raises its head to the sky and releases its howl into the winter night. Behind the wolf, the coin’s polished silver surface is not layered to mimic the light of the engraved full moon, which faintly illuminates the landscape below, and the wolf from behind.
 
The obverse design features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The Queen appears on the coinage of over 30 countries. These are the first and only rhodium coins to have her image and will be unique after she passes. The coins we have are the special limited edition First Release coins certified in perfect PR70 by ANACS. Only 100 individually numbered coins have been certified as First Release.
