Description

First coin in a new series! The Wildlife Reflections series celebrates Canada’s natural beauty through colourful, texturally enhanced depictions of Canadian fauna, beginning with the grizzly bear (Coin #1).

Few mammals are as closely associated with the forested regions of western and northern Canada as the grizzly bear, a true icon of these wild spaces. Ursus arctos is Canada’s largest land-based carnivore, and while its strength is indisputable, this coin’s reverse inspires awe by showcasing a quiet moment at sunrise – and by presenting the mighty grizzly and its salmon prey as a reflection of the ecosystems they inhabit.

Coin 1: Grizzly Bear
Coin 2: Cougar (launches June 25th)
Coin 3: Moose (launches November 5th)

The Design:
Designed by wildlife artist Claude Thivierge, your coin’s reverse features a colourful sunrise that sets the tone for a peaceful river scene, with engraved mountains and forests providing a captivating backdrop. Selective colour extends to both the grizzly bear and its salmon prey, and to their reflection in the water below, while a multi-texture effect mimics the look of fur and creates a shimmering effect on the surface of the water. The obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.  The obverse also bears a special marking that includes four pearls symbolizing the four effigies that have graced Canadian coins and the double date of her reign.

With the purchase of this first coin, all customers are eligible to receive a free mint branded clamshell case to safety store all three coins.
