The Design:

Based on a photograph captured by Canadian photographer Janet Stevens, the reverse features vibrant colour over the detailed engraved image of a grizzly bear. The setting is on the northwest coast of British Columbia, where the Khutzeymateen Park is home to one of the province’s largest known coastal population of grizzlies. Resting on the green sedge grass bank, this particular grizzly bear is easily spotted thanks to its reddish-brown fur; its eyes are shut as it rests its heavy head on its left forepaw, while its right paw is loosely extended towards its muzzle. The long claws that make the grizzly’s prints so distinctive are in full view in this close-up, which affords a rare view of an iconic species that is emblematic of British Columbia’s wilderness and natural beauty.
