FIRST COIN IN NEW SERIES! A touching take on the Arctic’s top predator! Order today!

Northern Canada is home to nearly two-thirds of the world’s polar bear population. This Arctic titan lives a largely solitary life, but it isn’t territorial—it is often seen playing with other polar bears or even cuddling together for a nap. Much like us, the world’s largest land carnivore uses sound and body language to communicate, whether it’s a playful raised stance, an aggressive lowering of the head, or the endless sniffing of a very curious bear.

An ideal gift for someone who enjoys polar bears and nature! Order today!

Design:

The reverse design by wildlife artist W. Allan Hancock captures a tender moment between two polar bears (Ursus maritimus). One polar bear nuzzles the other in a gesture that expresses affection and highlights the social bond between the pair. A balanced mix of colour and engraving brings the Arctic landscape to life, helped by various frostings that separate the mountains from the sea ice. In the sky, a colourful sunset is reflected on the open water below, where an iceberg adds a cool turquoise hue. The reverse includes the year “2019” and the word “CANADA”, both struck incuse. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Packaging:

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
