The 2006 ½ oz Silver Timber Wolf from the Royal Canadian Mint was quick in becoming a desirable collectible. This hard to find coin now generally sells at a substantial premium over its intrinsic silver value, and the design of the coin was re-used on the popular 2011 1 oz Canadian Wolf Silver Coins from the Royal Canadian Mints Wild Life Series.
The 2006 ½ oz Silver Canadian Timber Wolf coin on offer comes sealed in its original mint plastic. The Silver Timber Wolf comes with a silver purity of .9999. Most other silver bars and coins have a purity of .999.
