This is the first coin in a new "Untamed Canada" series. The mintage is extremely low at just 1500 pieces. The coin is of the highest quality produced by the Royal Canadian Mint, struck with a near flawless proof finish and containing one quarter ounce of pure gold.

Design:

The coin features a unique stylized image, inspired by woodblock design, of an Arctic Fox set against symbolic elements of its Canadian habitat. The fox sits serenely in the foreground of the image, looking toward the left side of the field, its thick fur, fluffy tail, small ears, and dog-like facial features beautifully rendered in stylized detail. In the background, motifs of circles, droplets, and wavy rays rise from the image of a circular sunburst positioned directly behind the fox. The circles and droplets symbolize the snow and light that are fundamental elements in the world of the Arctic fox. The wavy rays allude to the warmth and brilliance of the sun, even in the Arctic landscape. The circularity of these elements echoes the circular field of the coin and hints at the cyclical nature of the Arctic fox's lifecycle. The outer frame is engraved with the species' Latin name, "Vulpes lagopus," the word "CANADA," the date "2013," and the face value of "25 DOLLARS."
