The steady, unyielding gaze of the Canada lynx has a marked intensity to it in this reverse design by Canadian artist Curtis Atwater. The close-up portrait offers a rare face-to-face encounter with a famously elusive wild cat, whose mesmerizing features are engraved in outstanding textural detail.
Special emphasis is placed on the felid's eyes, thanks to the application of an innovative enamel effect that re-creates the glossy look of a traditional paint application, but with more nuanced color variance to give these irises a more life-like appearance. The effect is enhanced by glow-in-the-dark technology, which mimics the naturally luminous effect of the nocturnal hunter's stare during a rare nighttime encounter. Hold your coin under a light source for 30-60 seconds then view the coin in darkness, where the colorful eyes glow-as they would during a night-time encounter with limited light!
