The cougar is one of the most fearsome beasts on the North American continent. Stalking its prey with stealth-like capabilities, few of its targets know it is there before they are beset upon by the powerful feline. As the launch coin in the Animals in the Moonlight collection, the cougar anchors a stunning new collection of colorized proof coins.

The all-new Animals in the Moonlight collection from the Royal Canadian Mint features scenes of animals from the wilderness in Canada under the moonlit skies of the nighttime. The cougar is the first release in a four-coin series that will also feature the lynx, orcas, and an owl. All coins will have proof finishes with colorized designs on the reverse.
Set along the Pacific Coast of Canada, this image features that of a cougar walking along the shorelines under a moonlit sky. Snow is often a rarity along the Pacific Coast, but when it falls on the coastline itself is creates a purely magical effect on wondrous scenes that help balance shadows and radiant light.
The reverse of the 2017 2 oz Proof Canadian Silver Animals in the Moonlight: Cougar Coin includes the image of a cougar stalking its prey as it silently walks along the snowy coastline of Canadas Pacific shores. The full moon is rising high in the sky above, slightly shrouded by the clouds in the sky above.
On the obverse of all 2017 2 oz Proof Canadian Silver Animals in the Moonlight: Cougar Coins is the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. In use on Canadian coinage since 1952, the Queens portrait on this particular coin is the latest depiction, created in 2003 by Canadian artist Susanna blunt.
All 2017 2 oz Proof Canadian Silver Animals in the Moonlight: Cougar Coins have a colorized design field on the reverse, and ship to you inside of a maroon clamshell box for protection. Each box arrives in a graphic beauty shipper from the Royal Canadian Mint that includes the full-color cougar artwork from the coins reverse.
