Canadian Cougar
The cougar (Puma concolor), also commonly known as the mountain lion, puma, or catamount, is a large felid of the subfamily Felinae native to the Americas. Its range, from the Canadian Yukon to the southern Andes of South America, is the greatest of any large wild terrestrial mammal in the Western Hemisphere. An adaptable, generalist species, the cougar is found in most American habitat types. It is the second heaviest cat in the New World, after the jaguar. Secretive and largely solitary by nature, the cougar is properly considered both nocturnal and crepuscular, although sightings during daylight hours do occur. The cougar is more closely related to smaller felines, including the domestic cat (subfamily Felinae), than to any subspecies of lion (subfamily Pantherinae).

The reverse design by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc presents a profile portrait of a cougar in a natural setting. Surrounded by the coniferous forests of the Rocky Mountains, this muscular predator cuts an impressive figure; detailed engraving recreates the cougar’s distinctive features, from its strong jaw line to its delicate whiskers and soft fur. The elusive hunter is depicted with its jaw open in mid-growl, as it releases its thrillingly drawn-out call to the wild.
