This four-coin series explores the predator and prey relationship of 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 first coin focuses on the features of a prolific hunter, as seen in this life-like depiction of an Arctic fox.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc features a side-profile view of an Arctic fox (Vulpes lagoons), depicted here in the style of a traditional wildlife portrait. Meticulous engraving recreates the fox's features with extraordinary precision on such a small canvas, giving it a life-like quality that beautifully captures the texture of its thick, winter pelt. Standing still in the wintry landscape, the fox's small, rounded ears are alert as it quietly steadies its gaze on its prey beyond the image field.

A beautiful and unique gift for any nature or Canadiana themed collection!
