Design:
Designed by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc, your engraved coin displays a heartwarming scene: a mother polar bear with her two young cubs on a frozen Arctic hillside. The massive mother sits patiently on her hindquarters in a snowdrift, practically nose-to-nose with one cavorting cub as it stands on its hind legs, pawing at her left arm. The other cub stands in front of her on all fours, looking around at its frozen surroundings. Above the bears and to the right side of the image rises a large snowdrift topped by two snow-covered trees.

The reverse also features a stylized polar bear paw print and the engraved word “CANADA,” the date “2013” and the face value of “25 DOLLARS.”

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a maroon clamshell case lined with flock and protected by a customized full color sleeve.
