Despite its sometimes fearsome reputation, the grizzly (Ursus arctos) is actually a shy, solitary creature that lives a relatively calm life in the forests and mountains across most of Canada's northwest and northern mainland.

Though it has all of the hallmarks of a fearsome predator, most of the grizzly's time is spent foraging for berries and other vegetation—which is where it gets the majority of its bulk. In fact, while grizzlies feast on salmon and other fish when it is available, and will prey on deer, moose, elk, and caribou when necessary, about 90% of their diet is vegetation.

This apex predator has no natural enemies except when it is young. The greatest threat to its survival is habitat erosion and encroachment by humans, who affect grizzly populations directly through hunting, road collisions, and other conflicts as well as influencing its distribution, presenting a particular challenge for animals that require large natural ranges with adequate food in order to thrive.

This low-mintage coin brings the amazing grizzly to life in 99.999% pure gold, an exceptional addition to your collection! Order today!

About the Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc, your coin features the profile portrait of a roaring grizzly bear backed by lines representing the bear's roar. Viewed from its right side, the grizzly's large, thick-furred head is raised with mouth open in a roar or growl. The bear's characteristic small fur-covered ears, sharp teeth, and small dark eyes are presented in beautifully engraved detail.
