2020 Canadian $25 Multifaceted Animal Head: Lynx - 1 oz Fine Silver Extraordinarily-High Relief Coin

Extraordinarily-high relief (EHR) goes beyond what high and even ultra-high relief techniques can accomplish and elevates the subject matter to around 6 mm. The striking visual effect of each coin in your series that becomes more of a sculpture than a simple embossing is given an exceptional brilliance with innovative proof finish, making the silver shine like never before. Each coin features a multifaceted design built out of 435 polygons on the first coin, 498 on the second, and 450 on the third, that are crafted in proof finish to make each coin sparkle like a diamond.


THIRD IN A NEW THREE COIN SERIES! Every coin features an animal head (wolf, bear, and lynx) in a new multifaceted EHR minting technique.
INNOVATIVE WORLD FIRST COINING TECHNOLOGY! Each coin features an ingenious approach to coin design. These are the first proof-quality coin struck with EHR  ̶  a new term in the world of minting. EHR is defined by an impressive relief that reaches to around 6 millimeters on a coin of only 36 millimeters in diameter and 1 oz. in weight. Ultra-High Relief coins barely reach 2 mm of height and standard relief coins remain almost flat in comparison.
EXCEPTIONAL FROSTING! Each coin's multiple facets, composed of 435 polygons (on the first coin) to be exact, are crafted in proof finish to reflect light from various angles. The result is that each coin sparkles like a diamond. The highest quality proof finish combined with the EHR technique gives it an unequaled brilliance and sharpness, making it a world first coin of its kind. A lightly frosted background accentuates the sparkle of the central main design, giving its already dazzling subject even more emphasis. On the obverse, multiple light-relief facets provide similar luminous, reflective effect.
UNIQUE SCULPTING! The exceptional three-dimensionality of EHR allows each animal head to elevate mere embossing to a sculpture of each animal head. The relief is so extreme and pronounced that the modeling and tooling work had to be approached in an unorthodox manner. The engravers had to adapt their normal coin modeling procedures, CNC machining strategies and tool polishing methods to accommodate such an extreme relief.
UNIQUE COINS! Unlike any other, each multifaceted animal head feels alive. The innovative EHR technology transforms the imprint into an actual model.
AN ODE TO NATURE! Canada is known for its vast and abundant nature, often protected and well preserved. The wilderness enveloping most of our land has continuously shaped our country, our history, and our culture. The multifaceted Wolf Head highlights the connection between civilization and nature.
INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATES! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.
LOW MINTAGE! Each coin limited to 2,500 coins worldwide.
ONE OZ. PURE SILVER! Each coin is crafted from one ounce of 99.99% pure silver.


The reverse sculpture by Alex Tirabasso features a multifaceted grizzly bear head built out of 498 polygons. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.


Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box.
