UNIQUE! Bear appears to gaze at its own reflection in the water! Order today!

The enigmatic grizzly bear (Ursus arctos) is famously associated with the rugged beauty of Canada's forests, and has long been a revered cultural and spiritual symbol for the First Nations people. It is a curious and highly intelligent species, with a long-term memory that retains the location of food or water sources within its range in the forests of western and northern Canada. While it is both feared and respected, the grizzly plays an important role in the ecosystem it inhabits; its reclusive nature only adds to its powerful mystique, making rare encounters thrilling—but best viewed from a distance.

A beautiful and unique coin you will admire for years! Order yours today!

Special features:
  • Your coin is the first in a captivating three-coin series titled Reflections of Wildlife.
  • Your coin presents a stunning portrait of an iconic Canadian species, and also a breathtaking image that speaks of the natural beauty of Canada's unspoiled wilderness.
  • LIFE-LIKE QUALITY! Finely detailed engraving gives the image a life-like quality!

About the Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Maurade Baynton, your coin features a beautifully engraved wildlife portrait of a mighty grizzly bear (Ursus arctos) at the water's edge. With the dense alpine forest filling the background behind it, the hungry bear has stepped beyond the rocky shores of a pond and into the water, sending a ripple of gentle waves across the mirror-like surface. The grizzly bear's characteristic hump is all the more prominent as this iconic animal lowers its head and seemingly gazes at its reflection in the water, which is beautifully recreated through careful finishing techniques.

Packaging:

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

    Instead of giving my grandchildren a twenty dollar bill, I'd rather give them such coin which they would appreciate and keep.

          Comments about 1/2 oz. Fine Silver Coin – Reflections of Wildlife: Grizzly Bear (2016):

          This a great coin to collect at a decent price. I would show it off and keep it in my collection with this low mintage. The only thing I didn't like was that there were a few tiny bits of debris on the coins surface, and I can't carefully take them off because the coin is sealed.

            What is the difference between fine silver and pure silver coins?

              A:

              Hi GWC,

              Fine silver and pure silver are interchangeable terms. Fine silver is defined by its purity, which is at least 99.9%. Most of our coins are 99.99% pure/fine silver.
