A perfect gift for someone who enjoys a never-before-seen coin design and technique! Order today!

This ingenious coin design brings together a mass of polygons to create a captivating image of a mother polar bear and her cub. Known as “low poly” art in the video game industry, this geometric technique has been merged with outstanding sculpting, cutting-edge technology and advanced finishing techniques.

The result: a stunning design with exceptional relief that defines every polygon, and rich, bold colours that bring depth, dimension and a powerful sense of shadow and light to the scene.

A perfect gift for someone who enjoys a never-before-seen coin design and technique! Order today!

Special features:
  • EACH POLYGON IS DISTINCT: Each polygon is made distinct from the other through extraordinary sculpting, cutting-edge technology and advanced finishing techniques, while the application of bold colour adds vibrancy and alters our perception of dimension and light.
  • A fresh, modern take on Canada's timeless icons: The second coin in the inventive new five coin Geometry in Art series, which reinterprets familiar Canadian emblems—the polar bear, the beaver, the caribou, the loon and the maple leaf—in a low poly art style.
  • CUTTING-EDGE TECHNIQUES FOR A DIMENSIONAL DESIGN: Exceptional engraving, relief and the application of different finishing techniques add distinctiveness to the polygon shapes that form the stylized image, resulting in a stunning composition that showcases our exceptional level of craftsmanship and innovative artistic vision!
  • UNIQUE USE OF LOW POLY ART: Breathtaking use of colour: In keeping with the low poly art style, lustrous colours contribute to the perception of depth and shadows; the varying shades of blue and white also help convey the icy feel of the Arctic setting, providing yet another dynamic visual element to the design.
  • An unforgettable addition to any collection—especially those with a wildlife, nature or Canadiana theme, or any that include the beloved symbols that have come to represent this land and its people.
  • Crafted in 99.99% pure silver, your coin is GST/HST exempt!

Design:
The reverse design by Canadian artist Calder Moore features a stylized portrait of the “King of the Arctic” and beloved representative of Canada's North, the mighty polar bear (Ursus maritimus). Geometry, technology and art intersect as the entirety of the image is presented in a low poly art style; multiple polygon shapes come together to form a mother bear (left) and her cub (right), with each shape made distinct from the other through extraordinary sculpting, cutting-edge technology and advanced finishing techniques. Together, they form a touching scene of this iconic species as a mother bear introduces her cub to Canada's Arctic waters; gracefully swimming out, the mother turns to face her young as he gingerly attempts his first few strokes. The hard edges that are characteristic of this style lend themselves beautifully to recreating the Arctic ice above and below the water's surface; yet, it is the application of rich, vibrant colours that brings a dynamic quality to the overall design, infusing it with depth and dimension through different shades of blues and whites which create a playful perception of shadow and light.

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

    This coin is absolutely stunning. The picture doesn't do the coin justice. I will be purchasing the rest of the coin to complete my set. Also, the shipping was extremely fast.

            Few times if at all lately have I had to stop and take a second look at a new RCM release. This is one of those exceptions where I can say RCM really hit it out of the park. From the Unique geometrical design, to the coloration, to maintaining the heritage and tradition of what Canada represents without being tacky. This coin really says it all and was a must have. I'm certain it will not only retain its value but increase over time.

                          The mintage states 7,500 for the coin. Does this number include the sets being sold as well... the mintage on the sets also states 7,500. So is the mintage really 7,500 or is it actually 15,000??

                            Thank you for your question. Both products share mintage, so for example, the first coin in the series, the loon, has a worldwide mintage of 7,500 which is then shared between the subscription with the fancy collector box, and is also available as a single in a clamshell box.
