The Threatened Species series, a series of collector coins created by the Mint in order to promote the awareness and preservation of endangered fauna and flora species, features this year a coin dedicated to the Iberian Wolf, by the sculptor Luís Valadares.
Once present throughout the entire national territory, the Iberian Wolf (Canis lupus signatus) is now limited to some areas of central and northern Portugal. It was classified as «Endangered» due to the scarcity of wild prey and the activities developed by humans, which have been compromising the survival of this species.
