Introducing a new three-coin series that highlights Canadian species and their habitat, and shows the softer side of nature through an animalÕs display of affection.

From a motherÕs care to a bonding pair, it's easy to see that animalsÑincluding Canada's iconic creaturesÑexpress themselves and show their affection for one another in the most familiar (and adorable) ways. Beginning with the emblem of the Arctic, the Canadian Fauna series is a love letter to our wildlife and the wild places they inhabit. Each coin features a tender depiction that strikes the perfect balance between colour and engraving, animal and landscape, in a show of appreciation and awe for the natural world that surrounds us.

The reverse design by wildlife artist W. Allan Hancock captures a tender moment between two polar bears (Ursus maritimus). One polar bear nuzzles the other in a gesture that expresses affection and highlights the social bond between the pair. A balanced mix of colour and engraving brings the Arctic landscape to life, helped by various frostings that separate the mountains from the sea ice. In the sky, a colourful sunset is reflected on the open water below, where an iceberg adds a cool turquoise hue. The reverse includes the year Ò2019Ó and the word ÒCANADAÓ, both struck incuse. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
