Capture the grandeur, strength and beauty of Canada’s Grizzly Bear on this 2023 ultra high relief $20 fine silver coin. This coin follows several other Ultra High Relief (UHR) one ounce animal coins issued since 2019, starting with the multi-faceted wolf. Most of these past issues sold out quickly and appreciated significantly in the secondary market. Mintage is limited to just 6,000 coins. HST/GST exempt.


The Design:

Step into the boreal forest of Western Canada, where the grizzly bear reigns supreme. The low perspective, combined with Ultra High Relief emphasizes the grizzly bear’s imposing size and appearance. Standing on a rock outcrop or cliff and surrounded by towering conifers, the elusive grizzly has perceived a threat as it looks down from its perch; the bear has raised its paw as if to strike and has a fierce expression on its face.

A long-time symbol of strength and of our wild spaces, the grizzly has the reputation of being a skilled hunter, a resourceful scavenger and a fiercely protective mother. Grizzly bears prefer to remain out of sight in Canada’s western forests and Arctic tundra, but when it does come into view, this strong and intelligent creature instantly commands all our attention and respect.

The obverse features a maple leaf pattern behind the posthumous effigy of Her Majesty 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.
