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:
  • Crafted from 99.99% pure gold, 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.
  • Part of the new Grizzly Bear series that celebrates an emblematic Canadian species, with each coin depicting the grizzly bear’s way of life in the Canadian wilderness.
  • Internationally renowned craftsmanship and rich artistry bring a grizzly bear family to life in exceptional detail in this unique collectible piece.
  • LOWER MINTAGE: A low mintage of just 275 coins available worldwide means this issue will be highly sought after by collectors.
  • Your coin is GST/HST exempt.

About the Design:
Designed by Canadian artist Lauren Crawshaw, your coin is an evocative portrait of the remarkable bond that exists within a family of grizzly bears, which are all rendered in stunning dimensional detail by Royal Canadian Mint engravers. In this ground-level view of the family, the mother is depicted lying in the grass flatlands at the foot of the mountains of western Canada, which rise up softly in the background beneath the clouds in the sky. Her expression is a touching one filled with maternal love and attentive devotion to her brood; one cub playfully stands on its mother’s hip in a playful and 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 out of the coin’s image field with an innocent yet hesitant expression. It is a reminder that humans pose the greatest threat to the grizzly bear’s existence.

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

        A:

        Our collector coins are non-circulating, assigning them a face value is part of what makes them official legal tender. Although these coins bear a denomination, their actual worth is usually significantly greater than their face value because of factors such as limited mintage, design and silver or gold content.
