Detailed engraving masterfully recreates the rough texture of the fissured bark, upon which lays the beloved Canadian icon: a maple leaf. It, too, is resplendent in full colour against the muted colours of the tree trunk, while shadows subtly infuse the breathtaking design with a sense of light, depth and dimension.Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded wood case with a graphic beauty box that compliments the coin's design. 2012 Edition - 1200 Mintage.

You may also flag this review. As a collector, I found the hologram effects to be a bit lacking. I was expecting more from such a pricey coin.
Other than that, the overall representation of the howling wolf and the Northern Lights is very eye-catching. Customers found this review helpful. The holographic effect is stunning.Just in time as it turns out. I cannot understand why some complain about the poor holographic effect. My coin is flamboyant under natural and artificial light.
Maybe there is some spread during minting. The value and quality of this coin is (to me) much higher than that of any colored one. I hope that it will not tarnish for a long time, because I fear that the oxidation will destroy the effect. The only con: poor artistic image of the wolf.
The front legs seem out of proportion (too thin). Beautiful design though have to hold the coin up to the light to really see the Hologram effect. A Lover Of Art, Quality Driven. This is a Gift for my son. He loves wolves and this coin is perfect because not only is it a beautiful Wolf but the hologram effect of the Northern Lights is stupendous.
Keep up the good work RCM. It's a Beauty, Eh!After having read other comments about not being able to see the colors & knowing that it's probably just how it was being held I took a chance and bought this coin. It's not in-your-face color as some may have liked it to be. It's more subtle but you can see various colors which come alive as you turn the coin. Love the wolf/northern lights theme.
Comes in plastic encasement presented in a a nice little hinged box with cert. Possibly will give this as gift to a nephew. Great Addition To The Col.It's so awesome to see the shimmering Aurora Borealis as I turn the coin in the light. Another remarkable product of the Royal Canadian Mint. Hologram not as visible as in the pictur. Not sure if a quality issue but cannot get the colours as per the picture -?
