Your coin was designed by Canadian artist Glen Loates and presents a full-body profile portrait of a grizzly bear. The massive grizzly is presented from its left side, its enormously powerful musculature and shaggy silver-tipped fur showcased to stunning effect. The bear's mouth is slightly open as it clambers over a log atop a rocky outcropping. Its pointed snout gives way to a massive head bearing distinctive small eyes and ears. The bear's large neck is lowered as it scans the ground. The outer frame of the image also features a miniature stylized grizzly head in profile.

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with custom beauty box.
