In the Arctic, adaptability means survival. Though seemingly barren and unchanging, this frozen land is in fact a study in constant change and home to an astonishing variety of lifeÑall perfectly adapted to the ArcticÕs extreme environment. This stunning 99.99% pure silver coin celebrates the splendour and diversity of the Canadian Arctic.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Bonnie Ross features a circular collage of the iconic plants, animals, geographical phenomena, and human activities that characterize CanadaÕs Arctic region. The circular design invites the viewer to rotate the coin and admire the intricate vignettes of plant and animal species, snow crystals and icebergs, and human innovations and activities. Centred around an ice crystal encircled by a flurry of delicate snowflakes, the coinÕs circle of life reveals wildflowers and berries, birds such as ptarmigan and puffins, and fish species including char and grayling. The land and sea mammals of the Arctic walk, swim, run, and leap, from beluga and narwhal to the harp seal, polar bear, Arctic wolf, caribou, muskox, Arctic fox, Arctic hare and lemmings. Across the meandering landscape filled with icebergs, ice floes, and open water are human activities such as ice fishing, dog sledding, snowmobiling, and more.

A valuable gift or discerning collectible for those who love natural imagery, original artwork, the North, and the Canadian landscape.
