**WOLVES OR WOLFS???**

Coins-World | Kepi

*                       In celebration of a giant, full "Blood Moon" here in the southwestern desert, I'd like to share these 3 coins from the Canadian Mint with you.  It's the "Silver Howling Wolves" series.  Each coin is 3/4 oz of .9999 pure silver and has a $2.00 face value.  The obverse shows Susanna Blunt's design of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The reverse depicts wolves in their natural habitat under the glow of the silvery moon howling to their hearts delight.  Dated 2015, 2016 and 2017.  I really enjoy these trio of coins, as the wolf is one of my favorite predators.  Can't wait till they come out with the 2018 design!  Thanks for reading my blog.  Comments are welcome!

Beautiful coins. Remember the 1967 50c with the howling wolf?

I always liked t her coins. There designs are great. You just have to worry about the silver content. Sometimes it's a half ounce and charge for a full ounce. Great blog this is perfect a beautiful design but why not an ounce? I like the series also. Thanks for sharing the beauty of the series. The information is great. Mike.

Canada does produce some nice looking coins. I was able to get a couple of photos a couple years back of the blood moon. Enjoyed the blog!

Canada really has a knack for creating beautiful coins in a depiction of an animal.

That is a beautiful collection! I really like the full moon. Adds something special to your blog. I'll be watching for the 2018 when you pick one up. Good luck and thanks for sharing!
