Emily Damstra, Artist

To emphasize its impressive size and power, I chose to depict the grizzly bear rising above the viewer. The rocky perch and surrounding trees give a sense of the wilderness that the bear inhabits and the wildness it symbolizes.

The highest point on this coin is the grizzly’s nose, which is not centered on the coin. Coins where the relief is not centered are prone to material filling unevenly, which can present a variety of challenges at striking. To prevent the coin from being unbalanced at striking, the engraver and I worked collaboratively to balance the high relief volume using computer simulations of striking. This allowed us to visualize how the material would flow, and gave us the opportunity to optimize the model of the coin before any physical tooling was made.
