The Design:

The reverse design by Inuit artist Andrew Qappik re-interprets the traditional portrait of the Arctic fox and presents it in a magnificent Inuit art style. The coin features a side profile view of an Arctic fox and hare, detailed engraving brings this artistic interpretation to life, in a way that showcases the beauty of the stealthy hunter’s profile and its facial features as it faces right, towards its prey. Meticulous engraving recreates the fox and hare’s features with extraordinary precision on such a small canvas, giving it a life-like quality that beautifully captures the texture of its winter fur.
