Few animals are as emblematic of Canada's rugged, unspoiled wilderness as the grizzly bear (Ursus arctos). Playing a complex role in the biodiversity of western and northern Canada, this largely solitary animal has long been revered as an important cultural and spiritual symbol. With this superb Grizzly Bear series of coins, the Royal Canadian Mint celebrates the majestic animal by depicting different scenes in the life of a grizzly bear.

A beautiful addition to any nature, wildlife and Canadian-themed collection! Order yours today!

Special features:
  • EDGE LETTERING: With impeccable precision, beautiful edge lettering indicates the coin's metal weight.
  • Crafted from 99.99% pure silver, this 1 oz. coin combines intricate engraving and multiple finishes to create a heart-warming portrait of a female grizzly bear with her two young cubs.
  • A thoughtful gift for those who share a love of art or admire Canada's rugged wilderness and iconic animals.
  • Your coin is GST/HST exempt and has a limited mintage worldwide.

About the Design:
Designed by Canadian artist Lauren Crawshaw, your coin presents a touching portrait of the bond that exists within a family of grizzly bears, which are rendered with finely detailed engraving. With the mountains of western Canada serving as a backdrop, a female grizzly bear is lying in the grass on a warm summer day; her expression is a touching one that is filled with maternal love and attentive devotion to her brood. One cub playfully stands on its mother's hip with an expressive stance, vocalizing and excitedly moving its forepaws as though communicating a story to its captivated audience. A quieter sibling lies close to the mother, draping itself over the female's forepaw; this cub's head is turned towards the viewer, as though peering hesitatingly out of the coin's image field with an innocent expression.

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

    Comments about 1 oz. Fine Silver Coin – Grizzly Bear: Family – Mintage: 6500 (2015):

    I took my 4 1/2 year old son for a our first father/son road trip to Bella Coola BC this past September. We traveled their to see the salmon spawning, and the Grizzly Bears feeding on the salmon before their winter hibernation. Though we have several pictures of our trip, and several stories to share, I felt that this coin would be a present he would enjoy and cherish of our first father/son trip together, and he would share with his children one day. How fitting this coin is for us, as we got close to a Sow and her cub. This coin is a perfect reflection of our trip, and has already been placed under our Christmas tree.

      Comments about 1 oz. Fine Silver Coin – Grizzly Bear: Family – Mintage: 6500 (2015):

      I do not buy gimmicks (enameled, stuck with bits of strange stuff) or silly topics (cartoon figures, snowmen), or random sports figures. I want coins that are historically or culturally important, and also are aesthetically pleasing. I have not bought any of the $200 coins that have a whirling conglomeration of images because I think they are very ugly.
