This 2016 $20 fine silver lynx coin is the second in the continuing Majestic Animals series that celebrates Canada's most distinctive and iconic animal species. The coin is double struck with proof finish, and contains just over one ounce of fine silver. While the first Majestic Animals series coins sold out with mintages of 7,000 to 8,000, the mintage of this coin is just 6,500.
The design by Canadian Artist Denis Mayer features the lynx perched on a rocky outcrop. Selective colour highlights the finely engraved portrait of this wild felid, from its thick fur, to its beard-like ruff and black tinged ear tufts. The green and brown moss and grasses at the broad feet of the lynx add a contrast to its pale colour. It is engraved with the year "2016", and the face value of "20 DOLLARS".

About the Canadian Lynx:
The Canada Lynx resembles a very large housecat, with most lynx measure between 670 and 1,067 mm from head to tail, and weigh from 4.5 to 17.3 kg, and their tails can be from 51 to 138 mm. It has a very short body, small tail, and long legs. Their fur coat is usually thick, long and grey in the winter and short, thin and light brown in the summer. They have black tips on the end of their tails and on their triangle-shaped ears. The Canada Lynx has a very wide face that has longer patches of fur on the side of its face.
The long, round feet of the Canada Lynx act like snowshoes by distributing their weight to help keep on top of the snow. They also have sharp claws that retract helping them to climb, fight predators and capture prey. Canada Lynxes can be found in forested areas from Newfoundland to the Yukon, and make their dens underneath fallen trees, tree stumps, rock ledges or thick bushes. Lynxes are very territorial animals, with the males living alone and are usually only found around other lynxes during breeding season, in winter.
