A symbol of the power and vastness of our nation’s northern landscape, the polar bear is king of the Canadian Arctic. And no wonder: not only is Canada home to the largest polar bear population on earth, but this massive beast has the ability to survive and thrive amid our country’s harshest climates.
Your coin showcases the beauty of the polar bear and its icy Arctic surroundings. An ideal coin for new fine silver collectors or gift for people who enjoy all things Canadian!
• This is the fourth coin in the Royal Canadian Mint’s exciting O Canada 1/2 oz silver coin series.
• Engraved in exquisite detail to celebrate one of Canada’s most important national icons.
• Rendered in fine silver (99.99% pure).
Designed by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc, your silver coin captures this remarkable mammal as it perches patiently on the edge of an Arctic ice floe, waiting for the exact moment to strike and seize its prey. Crafted with meticulous attention to quality, much detail is revealed in the engraved raised relief depicting the bear’s fur coat and water’s edge.
The reverse also features a stylized polar bear paw print and the engraved word “CANADA,” the date “2013” and the face value of “10 DOLLARS.”
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a maroon clamshell case lined with flock and protected by a customized full color sleeve.
This coin is a great gift and collectible to celebrate Canada’s natural wonders, the Canadian North, Canada’s Arctic and the country’s unique iconography.
