The Design:

This half-ounce silver coin is 99.99% pure silver, with a diameter of 34 millimetres and a metal weight of 15.87 grams. The reverse design by Canadian artist Glen Loates presents a full-body profile portrait of a grizzly bear. The massive grizzly is presented from its left side, its enormously powerful musculature and shaggy silver-tipped fur showcased to stunning effect. The bear’s mouth is slightly open as it clambers over a log atop a rocky outcropping. Its pointed snout gives way to a massive head bearing distinctive small eyes and ears. The bear’s large neck is lowered as it scans the ground. Its enormous shoulder muscles, large neck hump, powerful abdomen, and low rump are rendered in dimensional detail by Royal Canadian Mint engravers. The reverse is engraved with the word “CANADA,” the date “2014,” and the face value of “10 DOLLARS.” The outer frame of the image also features a miniature stylized grizzly head in profile. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
