A low mintage of just 500 coins in a double concave piedfort format containing about ten ounces of pure silver make this $100 Brown Bear coin an exceptional high quality collector piece. Presented as a double-concave piedfort coin: an exquisite collectible that is twice the thickness of a typical fine silver coin and features both a concave-shaped reverse and obverse. This is the first of two wildlife species that command attention in this groundbreaking series of coins, whose inward-curved surfaces are a remarkable feat of numismatic engineering.

The concave-shaped reverse provides a unique canvas for this wildlife portrait by Denis Mayer Jr. Seen in three-quarter view, a brown bear splashes its way across a salmon-rich river in Western Canada. Against a mountain backdrop, the bear seemingly pauses mid-step to gaze at the viewer. Various finishes add depth to the inward-curving design, which also includes the word ÒCANADAÓ, the year Ò2019Ó and the face value of Ò100 DOLLARSÓ. The equally concave-shaped obverse features a concentric pattern of maple leaves and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
