This exceptional coin captures all the power and drama of a confrontation between two gargantuan males. It's the climax of a dispute that likely began with some grunting and groaning, as well as some posturing and strutting to intimidate the other bear into submission. And if that doesn't work, the
two titans will ultimately clash to determine who reigns supreme.

About the Design:
Designed by Canadian artist Lauren Crawshaw, your coin transports you to one of the many river valleys of western Canada, where tree-covered mountains and glacial peaks form a serene backdrop for a scene rife with intensity and tension. Two male grizzly bears are engaged in a fearsome display of strength in the cold water. With a wrestler's prowess, each bear uses the sparring skills honed through the playful scrapping of their youth; but this is no game: the drive to reproduce is strong, and our two bears are locked in a fierce battle for the opportunity to mate with a receptive female. Attempting an aggressive display of dominance, the bear on the left side of the image field stands higher than the bear on the right; both are erect on their hind legs, freeing their fore paws to push upon the opponent with the entirety of their immense weight. They will lock their open jaws together in the struggle for dominance, each bear hoping to emerge as the victor. This tension-filled, side-profile portrait is rendered with meticulous engraving; advanced techniques capture the design's finer details by adding beautiful dimension to the elements, from the bears' long fur to their aggressive body language and expressions, even capturing the excess saliva that is produced by the bears in their agitated state.

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