Far from a barren land of snow and ice, the Canadian Arctic is home to a beautifully diverse wildlife that embodies the spirit of this region. Species such as the polar bear and narwhal are uniquely adapted to life in this often-harsh environment, where they have long played a role in the culture and survival of Indigenous communities. Symbols of strength, beauty and resilience, the animals of the North are the proud emblems of our Arctic region, and are among Canada’s most cherished and widely recognized icons. This gold coin is a celebration of Canada’s North, represented by wildlife that ties together land, sea and sky.
