A 1967 coin from Canada featuring a Howling Wolf
This coin from Canada has a lot of history. It was part of a national design contest to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Canada in 1967. The fifty cent coin for that year featured the winning design of a howling wolf. 1967 was also the last year that the fifty cent coin was made of silver, changing the next year to coins made of nickel.
