2014 Canadian $20 The Wolverine - 1 oz Fine Silver Coin


The wolverine is the largest member of the Mustelidae (weasel) family. This stout animal enjoys a fearsome "tough guy" reputation.

Much of the wolverine's notoriety can be attributed to its secretive ways, low population density and remote northerly range in central and western Canada. It's one of the nation's least understood animals, but as researchers continue to study the wolverine, they are discovering it is one of nature's great powerhouses.

The wolverine's strength is far beyond its stature. Its powerful jaws can bite through moose tibia, and its teeth have evolved to eat frozen meat and bones. It has long, semi-retractable claws that it uses primarily for digging and climbing. And while the wolverine is known to ferociously defend its food from larger predators, it is primarily a scavenger rather than a hunter of live prey.

A variety of finishes creates this distinctive wood block portrait of the wolverine in its habitat. Order yours today!
