Canis Lupus
Canis lupus, or gray wolf, is an apex predator at the top of the food chain. Capable of bringing down a moose or bison unaided, the gray wolf is cunning enough to drive its prey onto ice, slopes or steep banks to slow it down. The gray wolf is the largest living species of wolf, with humans and tigers being its only serious enemies.

The North American population of these once-common predators dwindled following extermination efforts in the 1930s and they have been relegated to areas within Alaska, Canada, the Great Lakes, the northern Rockies and the Pacific Northwest. They were reintroduced to Yellowstone Park in 1995.


The coin's reverse depicts the gray wolf in a state of aggression, his menacing fangs drawn and lips lightly curled. The wolf's ferocity is highlighted with a ceramic tooth inlaid by hand. On top the inscription “Canis Lupus”, the scientific name for the gray wolf and on bottom the name of the series “North American Predators”. The issue date 2015 is present in this side. This large 2 oz Silver coin is 50 mm in diameter, providing a higher amount of detail. The coin's obverse depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elisabeth II, the issue country and the face value.
