Scientists have long recognized the role of predators and prey in maintaining nature's delicate balance. Without a predator, prey would overrun the ecosystem they inhabit. Without prey, there would be no food source to support the predators.

This relationship between all members of the food chain is a fundamental truth among Canada's Aboriginal peoples, who have known for millennia that the survival of one species is inextricably linked to the survival of another.

This series explores the predator–prey relationship between the Arctic fox and the Arctic hare, featuring four intricately carved pure gold coins that portray each species in a classic pose and then re-interpreted them as Inuit art. It is a tribute to two remarkable species that have adapted to their extreme Arctic environment to fulfill their special roles as guardians of nature's balance.

About the first coin Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc, the first coin in your subscription features a side-profile view of an Arctic fox (Vulpes lagopus), depicted here in the style of a traditional wildlife portrait. Meticulous engraving recreates the fox's features with extraordinary precision on such a small canvas, giving it a life-like quality that beautifully captures the texture of its thick, winter coat. Standing still in the wintry landscape, the fox's small, rounded ears are alert as it quietly steadies its gaze on its prey beyond the image field.


Elegant display case complete with a built-in magnified display to showcase every coin in full detail!

The Images Leap Out At You


Good things come in small packages, the craftsmanship in these small gold coins stands out in the relief of the wolf and hare, these would make an excellent beginners collector set for any young person you know to get them interested in both numismatics and collecting coins for value.

Beauty in a small package


Not having the money for the usual gold coins, when I saw this great price for a gold coin I had to buy it. I knew it would be small but once I got the first coin I feel in love. It's a stunning coin with great detail. I can't wait for the case and inuit designs. This will be proudly displayed

I was wondering if the magnifying display case can be purchased separately? I have the 0.5 gram big mammal set of gold coins and this case would work perfectly to display those as well. I do have this subscription to this set as well and recently received the case. Thanks in advance. Regards, Joseph Oliver


Hi Joe, We do not sell the magnifying display case separately but some of our authorized coin dealers may sell it or similar cases. Here's the link to our dealer locator page.

Is each coin 0.5g? or is that that total weight of all four?

Hi Kelly, Yes, you may cancel the subscription after the 2nd coin, however the free collector case is shipped with the third coin.


I have purchased the Artic Fox as a single coin not knowing that there will be a 4 coin subscription set. I will be purchasing the remaining coins in the set and I am wondering if I would be eligible to receive the presentation case as well
