Viewed together, the series showcases the variety of finishes, selective plating applications, colour, and precious metals used by Royal Canadian Mint engravers to bring life and energy to every image. The entire 5-coin set to complete the story of a year in the life of a female cougar as she negotiates a mountain pass, stalks on a tree limb, and fixes her gaze on her quarry in beautiful silver, gold, and platinum. A limited worldwide mintage: 3000 for the Set that contains 1 Coin Pure Gold and 1 Coin Pure Platinium.Your coin features a female cougar negotiating a rocky mountain pass. Viewed from her left side, the cougar is presented in full-body detail, each massive muscle in her powerful back legs, shoulders, and fore-paws finely rendered. Her long, counterbalancing tail hangs gracefully behind her and her head is lowered as she uses her exceptional vision to determine the best path through the landscape.
The lower half of the image depicts the massive outcroppings of a barren mountainside. In the background of the upper half of the image we see a few scraggly pine boughs, adding visual interest to the image and balancing the lower half of the design.
Your coin features a female cougar resting silently on a tree limb. The focal point of this beautifully detailed image is the cougar's intense gaze as she locks her unseen prey in her sights. Her gaze will not leave this unsuspecting target until she is upon it. Her left forepaw and muscular front arm extend down the tree limb, claws extended to ensure her grip. Her entire body curls under her as she gathers her full power to leap.
Beneath the tree limb, her long tail provides the perfect counter-balance, ensuring the uncanny accuracy and distance of her leap. The image is beautifully balanced by the spray of leafy maple branches, transformed to autumnal orange, that provide the cougar with the camouflage that is so essential to her hunting success. Your coin features a female cougar leaping through the snow toward her prey.Viewed from the position of the prey animal, this dynamic portrait presents to stunning effect the cougar's most important hunting tools: her large, powerful fore-paws, highly muscular back legs, long counterbalance tail, strong shoulders for holding down prey, and sharp gaze. In a stylized landscape of snow-covered rocky terrain, she leaps with intense focus toward the viewer. The cougar is finished in gold plating to bring the intensity of the image to life. Fourth and fifth coin design. Your gold and platinum coins feature a portrait of a female cougar.
The animal's powerful, intimidating golden eyes ringed in dark tones, blunt muzzle spiked with long whiskers, short round ears, and dense fur are presented in full detail, bringing the intensity of the moment fully to life.
