All 2018 ¾ oz Canadian Silver Wolverine Reverse Proof Coins feature the Royal Canadian Mint’s cutting-edge security features. In the case of these coins, the micro-engraved, laser-etched maple leaf appears on the coin’s reverse face. At the heart of this maple leaf privy, you’ll find the numeral “18” for the year of issue which is visible only under magnification.
The wolverine is a member of the weasel family, but brings substantially more power and ferocity than its cousins. Most wolverines have a broad, round head with small eyes and short, rounded ears. What really sets them apart are the powerful jaws and teeth the animals possess, along with a thick neck and stockier build than other weasels.
On the reverse of the 2018 ¾ oz Canadian Silver Wolverine Reverse Proof Coin is the image of that wolverine. In this particular design from Denis Mayer Jr., the intricate details of the wolverine’s fur is visible as it opens its exceptionally powerful jaw to expose teeth capable of breaking bones and ripping through even frozen meat.
The obverse of all Canadian Silver Wolverine Reverse Proof Coins features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Introduced in 2003 from Canadian artist Susanna Blunt, this is the fourth-generation image of the Queen on Canadian coinage, and the only one to depict her without a crown.
All 2018 ¾ oz Canadian Silver Wolverine Coins are struck in reverse proof. This gives the coins a deeply-mirrored, clear finish to the design aspects and a deep, frosted-matte finish to the background field for exceptional contrast. All coins arrive in individual plastic, or inside of mint tubes and Monster Boxes of 600 coins for bulk orders.
