The RCM created this set to commemorate the threatened Canada lynx, a vulnerable species in Canada's northern forests. In Canada, the main threat to the species is habitat loss and poaching. The animals were often killed for their fur pelts, although since 2000, awareness and social stigma associated with lynx fur, has allowed the lynx population to thrive. Habitat loss still remains an issue for the lynx, but current populations have stabilized.

This set was a tough one to complete. The reflective fields in many of these coins are a little wavy, so finding those coins with flawless fields was a real challenge. For years, it looked as though this set would be impossible to complete in PF70. However, recent submissions of high quality first strike coins to NGC has increased the populations in the census, allowing me to finish this dandy little set.
