The scimitar cat (Homotherium serum) is arguably one of the most awe-inspiring animals of the Ice Age and it's brought back to life through this fine silver collectable coin. Famous for its serrated knife-like fangs, the scimitar cat's teeth were shorter than those of the better known sabre-tooth cat (Smilodon fatalis) but were equally lethal.

It was roughly the size of a lion, but with a lighter body, a short tail like a lynx, and long, powerful forelimbs but slightly shorter hind legs that gave it a hyena-like stance. This fascinating cat is known to have roamed in the Yukon, the Northwest Territories, and Alberta. Having gone extinct sometime between 13,000 and 11,000 years ago, the scimitar cat's demise was likely linked to that of the large Ice Age herbivores.

All collectable coins have been previously owned. Conditions will vary.
