The ever creative Royal Canadian Mint has captured one of its country's elusive wild cats, the lynx. 

The close-up portrait of the animal is wonderfully detailed with a textured appearance of the lynx's thick fur coat. The mint, using an innovative mint technique, has mimicked the rich, glossy look of colour enamel to give the creature's eyes a stunningly life-like appearance. 

Plus, as a clever nod to the nocturnal nature of the lynx, the coin glows-in-the-dark. Simply place your coin under a light source for 30-60 seconds, turn off the light and see the eyes glow as the wild cat's would in headlights.

The reverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth, along with the her name, the coin's denomination, issuing country and year of issue, and the Latin abbreviation for Dei Gratia Regina, Queen by the Grace of God.

It is the second in a 3-coin series that features the remarkable eyes of some of Canada's wildlife, all beautifully engraved in outstanding detail.

The mythical keeper of secrets and seer of truths, the Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis) is most active when night descends upon the boreal forest. Its acute vision is well suited to hunting in low-light conditions — a fact highlighted on the second coin in the Animal Eyes series, which combines an enamel effect and glow-in-the-dark technology to mimic the wondrous luminescence of these wild eyes.
