**Canadian Wolf**

Coins - World | Kepi

I'd like to share a new piece that I've added to my collection recently. It's part of the Royal Canadian Mint "Predator Series" 2018 Canada S $5 Wolf. Early Release. Graded by NGC as a MS 69. This coin is the third release in this series. The first being the 2016 Cougar and the second 2017 Lynx. The Wolf is 1 oz. of fine Silver and has a low mintage of 300,000. It is a sovereign coin backed by the Canadian Government. The Obverse shows Susanna Blunt's design of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth ll and the face value of $5 dollars. The Reverse is an engraved depiction of a wolf in pursuit of its prey. Designed by artist Nathalie Legace. I really liked the fine details of the wolf...coarse fur, sharp canines and running at full speed! The wolf is a fearless hunter that relies on high intelligence, adaptability and great hunting skill, especially in a pack. They have lived in all types of terrain in the northern hemisphere except for the desert...which is where I live. Around 50,000 wolves make Canada their home, the second largest population in the world after the former Soviet Union. They are very social and gather in packs of up to 20 members. Looking at this beautiful coin I can just imagine a pack of wolves running through the snow, working together as they pursue tonight's meal. Thank you for reading my blog! Comments are always welcome.

**Themed Coin Collections**

Coins | Kepi

I love Buffalo's! Especially in Numismatics. Here I'm showing my " American Buffalo 2014 Perth mint for Tuvalu $1 High Relief-Early Releases Proof 70 Ultra Cameo" ...boy that's a mouth full... haha!!! The photo's were tricky to take as this is a concave coin. This is one of many themed Buffalo coins and currency that I have collected over the past few years. Does anyone else have something special they like to collect with a theme in mind?
