**Cunning Cougar**

Coins-World | Kepi

This is the last coin in the Royal Canadian Mints set "Nocturnal by Nature". He's the "Cunning Cougar", a 2018 $20 Fine Silver Coin. This rhodium-plated silver coin has a diameter of 38mm and weight of 31.39 grams. Artist Tony Bianco designed the cougar out on a tree limb during its nightly hunt with the light of a full moon behind him. The obverse shows Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth ll designed by Susan Blunt. The other "night" creatures in this 4 coin set are the owl, wolf and brown bat. All with amazing details! I think the Canadian Mint really creates some wonderful coins, especially their animal and nature series. Hope you enjoyed this blog. Comments are always welcomed. Happy Easter to all!

What a beautiful piece! I have admired Canadian coins from afar, though I have recently acquired some older circulated pieces with nice original skin. Thanks for sharing!

The US Mint needs to take some notes. Cool coins and cool series! Good job getting the set!

I do like a lot of the Canadian series. Wish we could do some of the same things.

Very cool. I think RCM coins get a bad rap. They are more innovative than our mint is, IMHO.

You are so right Kepi, I have the Bat one and it is stunning. Now that I've seen the Cougar, I may have to collect the whole set. Thank You for Sharing and Happy Easter to You and Yours!!!
