Canada 50-CENTS (KM69) Wolf
Canada issued special coins in 1967 to mark 100 years of confederation. All the reverse designs were created by Canadian wildlife artist Alex Colville.
For the fifty cent coin, Mr. Colville says
The wolf, unfortunately no longer common, is here symbolic of the vastness and loneliness of Canada, and thus of our tradition and to a degree, of our present condition. Yet the wolf is not a pathetic creature.
