The slightest glimpse of the cougar's musculature leaves little doubt of its strength and agility. Canada's largest wild feline is known for using the element of surprise to its advantage; closely stalking its prey, the cougar waits for just the right moment to pounce as it does on the coin's design! Created by a process known as thermoforming, the 3D cougar leaps off the coin's surface for a true-to-life re-creation of a lightning-fast attack!
An ideal gift for someone who enjoys big cats! Order your coin today!
Designed by Royal Canadian Mint engraver Matt Bowen, your coin features a stunning three-dimensional rendering of a cougar (
concolor) in mid-leap. This shaped element is the product of a process known as thermoforming, which captures the big cat's likeness in exceptional detail from the long tail to the large forepaws, and the eyes that guide the hunt. Pushing off its long and muscular hind legs, the embossed cougar springs forward and seemingly leaps out of the coin! Behind it, finely detailed engraving provides an exquisite backdrop for the 3D cougar element, which seems perfectly at home in the rocky, semi-open terrain. Selective colour highlights our stealthy hunter by re-creating its reddish-brown fur, its green eyes, and the contrasting colours that mark the muzzle.
