The coin beautifully depicts a wolf standing on a rock, which the Estonian people proudly see as a natural part of Estonian nature. The wolf is a forest animal, so the background of the design depicts a classic Estonian pine forest. In the background we can also see the starry night sky, as this is when the wolf is most often heard.
