Gold Canadian Howling Wolf
1-OUNCE 99999 PURE GOLD “CALL OF THE WILD” 3-COIN SERIES COIN 1*: HOWLING WOLF (2014)
The eerie sound of a wolf’s howl can pierce the air for miles around, and send shivers down even the most stalwart spine. It can be a lone voice in the darkness, or multiple calls echoing from the distance. The wolf’s howl demonstrates its sophistication and complex social structure. Wolves live in packs of 4 to 12 members, and they are highly territorial, controlling hundreds of square kilometres. Howling is the pack’s way of communicating gathering members, warning intruding packs, even calling wolf pups.
