Description

As Canada approaches its 150th anniversary in July of 2017, the Royal Canadian Mint has introduced a coin series that showcases Canada's iconic flora, fauna, landscapes and landmarks, with one coin for each province and territory. "Panmure Island" is the eighth coin in the series, and represents the birthplace of Confederation, Prince Edward Island.

The coin is double dated 1867-2017 with a $10 denomination and weighs just over one half ounce of pure silver. The mintage is limited to 25,000. As a pure silver coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint, this coin is HST/GST exempt.

Based on a photograph captured by Canadian photographer "Jenny" Janet Stevens, the reverse features vibrant colour over the detailed engraved image of a grizzly bear. The setting is on the northwest coast of British Columbia, where the Khutzeymateen Park (a.k.a. Khutzeymateen/K'tzim-a-deen Grizzly Sanctuary) is home to one of the province's largest known coastal population of grizzlies. Resting on the green sedge grass bank, this particular grizzly bear is easily spotted thanks to its reddish-brown fur; its eyes are shut as it rests its heavy head on its left forepaw, while its right paw is loosely extended towards its muzzle. The long claws that make the grizzly's prints so distinctive are in full view in this close-up, which affords a rare view of an iconic species that is emblematic of British Columbia's wilderness and natural beauty. The reverse also features the engraved word "CANADA" and the dates "1867-2017" to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Confederation.
