Like most of the Royal Canadian Mint’s coins, the obverse of the Silver Lynx features a profile view of Queen Elizabeth II. You’ll also find inscriptions of “ELIZABETH II,” “5 DOLLARS,” and “2017.”
Designed by Canadian artist Emily Damstra, the reverse features a powerful lynx leaping toward its prey. The Canadian Lynx inhabits the boreal forests across the country. These skilled hunters live solitary, secretive lives, yet they easily adapt to changing seasons.
RCM engravers used a variety of techniques and finished to create an image with enough depth to give the lynx a more realistic appearance. Radial lines on both sides of the coin provide enhanced security, along with a maple leaf-shaped privy mark under the lynx’s belly on the reverse.
The Royal Canadian Mint produces all of Canada’s circulation coins, precious metal bullion coins, and various medallions. One notable feature on RCM coins, including the popular Silver Maple, is the micro-inscribed radial lines on the field of both sides. These lines create a unique light diffracting pattern when held to the light, adding another measure of security. This falls under the mint’s proprietary bullion DNA technology.
The Silver Lynx is the second silver coin to be released in the Predator series produced by the RCM. Once finished, the series will include four coins featuring North America’s iconic mammalian predators. The Silver Lynx has a limited mintage of only 500,000 coins.
Single Silver Lynx coins ship in a plastic flip. Quantities of 25 ship in mint-issued and sealed plastic tubes. Quantities of 500 ship in a strapped monster box.
