Urbane and adaptable
A member of the wolf family, the fox is at home in habitats as varied as the edge of the Arctic and the deserts of North Africa. Even a common sight in cities the size of London during the hours of darkness, foxes have colonised many suburban areas and, too small to be a danger to humans, as settlements have spread, so has the fox. The ability of such a wild animal to live in relative harmony with humans shows the strength of our association with foxes and the affection that many of us have for them. This is one of the reasons why, unlike some of the other animals in our Wildlife in our Sights series, the fox is not an endangered species. That said, fashioned with precision and passion by our master engravers, the Fox is still guaranteed to delight coin collectors and animal lovers alike.
