Design:

Based on a photograph captured by Canadian photographer "Jenny" Janet Stevens, the design on your coin features vibrant colour over the detailed engraved image of a grizzly bear (Ursus arctos). The setting is on the northwest coast of British Columbia, where the Khutzeymateen Park (a.k.a. Khutzeymateen/K'tzim-a-deen Grizzly Sanctuary) is home to one of the province's largest known coastal population of grizzlies. Resting on the green sedge grass bank, this particular grizzly bear is easily spotted thanks to its reddish-brown fur; its eyes are shut as it rests its heavy head on its left forepaw, while its right paw is loosely extended towards its muzzle. The long claws that make the grizzly's prints so distinctive are in full view in this close-up, which affords a rare view of an iconic species that is emblematic of British Columbia's wilderness and natural beauty. The reverse also features the engraved word "CANADA" and the dates "1867-2017" to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Confederation.

Packaging:

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