The Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Maurice Gervais and depicts an arctic fox in its natural habitat. The coin is engraved with the word "CANADA" and “FINE SILVER 1 OZ ARGENT PUR” around the rim and “9999” located just below the image of the arctic fox. The back of the coin has the name of the Queen “ELIZABETH II, the face value of "5 DOLLARS." and the date “2014.”

The Arctic Fox: 

Living in some of the most frigid extremes, the arctic fox has adapted for cold survival. Its pelt is unmatched for warmth, sustaining it at temperatures below -50° Celsius. The arctic fox has such keen hearing that it can precisely locate the position of prey under the snow. When it finds prey, it pounces and punches through the snow.  The fur is brown, grey-brown, blue-grey, or dark blue-grey in the warmer months. In the long Arctic winter, most turn pure white, although some populations show lighter blue-grey through the winter phase. The fox's thick fur covers its small rounded ears and even the pads of its feet, for optimum warmth.
