Canadian ½oz TimberWolf

The Canadian Silver ½oz Timberwolf was crafted after the immense success of the 1oz Silver Maple Leaf Coin which has been produced by the Royal Canadian Mint since 1988. Following the success of this coin the Royal Canadian Mint decided to produce a ½oz silver bullion coin in.9999 pure silver, the concept of creating a bullion coin in a ½oz has made it easy for people to invest in small quantities of bullion silver in the shape of coins. Apart from this using the Canadian Timberwolf mark on the coin has made it a favorite with collectors also thereby creating an increased demand. This silver coinhas the image of an Eastern TimberWolf which is depicted standing alone on a hill during a full in the winter night. This silver coin was designed by the artist and renowned Royal Canadian Mint engraver William Woodruff.
