Wolf
The gray wolf or grey wolf (Canis lupus), also known as the timber wolf or western wolf, is a canine native to the wilderness and remote areas of Eurasia and North America. It is the largest extant member of its family, with males averaging 43–45 kg (95–99 lb) and females 36–38.5 kg (79–85 lb). Like the red wolf, it is distinguished from other Canis species by its larger size and less pointed features, particularly on the ears and muzzle. Its winter fur is long and bushy and predominantly a mottled gray in color, although nearly pure white, red, and brown to black also occur. As of 2005, 37 subspecies of C. lupus are recognised by MSW3.

 
Design

The reverse of the coin features the image by Emily Damstra and presents a frontal portrait of a wolf in one of Canada’s many forested regions. Gazing directly into the eyes of the viewer, the wily hunter bears a peaceful yet studious expression, as it stands immobile behind the fall foliage that partially conceals its presence. Finely engraved details and special finishes combine to add texture and dimension to this wildlife portrait, as evidenced by the crisply rendered facial features and the guard hairs that protect the wolf’s neck. Green, red and golden hues highlight select maple leaves that frame the wolf’s face, and provide a hint of the famously colourful transformation of Canada’s beloved emblem. On the bottom of the reverse, the inscriptions: “CANADA” – the issuing country and “2019” – the year of issue. The obverse of the coin features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the inscriptions: “D·G·REGINA” – Dei Gratia Regina, “30 DOLLARS” – the face value and “ELIZABETH II” – the name of the Queen.
