Design:

The reverse design by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc features the profile portrait of a roaring grizzly bear. 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. In the background, a river roars through a rocky and remote northern wilderness of bushy undergrowth dotted by sparse evergreens. The sky rises above bear and wilderness, hand-polished to a glowing proof finish.

Did you know…
  • The grizzly is the second-largest land-based carnivore in North America, after the polar bear. Males average 250 to 350 kilograms and females 125 to 175 kilograms.
  • Although a grizzly does not hibernate, its metabolism slows down in winter time, making it less active and thus more reliant on stored calories.
  • Grizzlies can run in bursts of up to 45 kilometres per hour.
  • Despite their fearsome reputation, grizzlies avoid human contact.
  • In the wild, grizzlies can live up to 25 years.
  • The Canadian range of the grizzly bear once extended as far east as Manitoba, but today is limited to British Columbia, Alberta, the Northwest Territories, Nunavut, and Yukon.

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded wooden box with standard beauty box.

A Nice Finish

This is a perfect finish to the series. I have the trifecta displayed each in it's own floating case and I can't stop looking at them. They grab my attention everytime I pass by as the details light up differently in the lighting from different angles. 3 pieces of true art crafted out of pure silver. The wolf, the cougar and the grizzly look outstanding together. Thank you RCM for adding this beautiful collection on display at my home. I will never get tired of admiring these amazing Canadian Wildlife peices of art.

Obviously beautiful detailed coin. I love the animal themed silver coins. This one sure does not disappoint. Very detailed, breathtaking beauty and there is no describing the feeling of holding such a massive coin in your hand. A must have for the serious collector. Only 600 of these minted means only 600 people world wide can claim to own one. Worth every penny. Love it !
