Design:

The reverse design by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc features a traditional side-profile view of an Arctic hare (Lepus arcticus) in a natural setting during the winter season. Intricate engraving captures the hare's features with extraordinary precision on such a small scale, giving it a life-like quality that conveys the texture of its famously warm winter fur. The hare is aware of the predator's presence beyond the image field; keeping its large eyes trained on its foe, the hare moves its dark-tipped ears to detect the warning sounds of approaching danger.

Packaging:

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