This four-coin series explores the Arctic fox and the Arctic hare in Canada’s far North, where the harsher climate necessitates unique adaptations that have set these two species apart. The fourth and final coin in Fox and Hare series presents a portrait of the Arctic hare, re-interpreted as Inuit art.

The reverse design by Inuit artist Andrew Qappik re-interprets the traditional portrait of the Arctic hare (Lepus arcticus) and presents it in a magnificent Inuit art style. Detailed engraving brings this artistic interpretation to life, in a way that showcases the beauty of the hare’s profile and its facial features.

Seeing is believing! The reverse boasts an astounding amount of minute detailing on such a small scale—a testament to the exquisite craftsmanship of the Royal Canadian Mint!
