A GROUNDBREAKING FIRST! Your coin uses Dimensional Paint to produce a 3D-like image!

The Canadian Arctic is a place of beautiful extremes that are home to some of the world's most fascinating creatures, including the mighty polar bear. Our latest colour innovation, Dimensional Paint, creates the illusion of peering through real water on the reverse, where the split view offers a 3D-like glimpse of a mother diving with one cub, while another cub looks on from the engraved world above the waterline.

Dive into 3D-like waters in this colourful tribute to the True North. Order today!

Special features:
  • DIVE INTO OUR ARCTIC WATERS! Step into the pristine Arctic wilderness on your coin, where the combination of classic engraving and a new, 3D-like colour effect strikes the perfect balance between tradition and innovation.
  • A GROUNDBREAKING FIRST! Introducing Dimensional Paint, an RCM exclusive paint technique in which layers of colour are carefully arranged to produce a more dimensional image.
  • LIKE LOOKING THROUGH WATER! Below the waterline, the 3D-like effect creates the illusion of looking through real water.
  • POLISHED PROOF FINISH! Your coin's polished proof finish adds a bright shine to the engraved elements above the waterline, like sunlight striking the sea ice and reflecting it back into the atmosphere.
  • A SIMULATED WILDLIFE-VIEWING EXPERIENCE! A celebration of a beloved Arctic icon, the touching scene on the aquatic-themed reverse holds special appeal for collectors, art appreciators and nature enthusiasts.
  • TWO OZ. PURE SILVER! Your coin is 2 oz. proof quality 99.99% pure silver!
  • LOW MINTAGE! Limited to 3,000 coins worldwide.


Designed by Tony Bianco, your coin travels to the floe edge in the Canadian Arctic, where a split view offers a glimpse of life above and beneath the sea ice. Above the water, an engraved polar bear cub steps to the edge of a gleaming iceberg and peers into the icy sea. The waterline forms the boundary between this silvery world and the colourful one beneath the surface, where a mother polar bear and her cub have plunged into Canada's northern waters. The first-time use of Dimensional Paint adds a 3D-like effect to the icy underwater scene, where colour layers create the illusion of real water atop the coin's surface. The reverse includes the engraved words “CANADA 2018”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.


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

Where's the 3D effect?


First time I was not expressed by the mint's coins

This is the first RCM purchase I have been disappointed to receive. I love the design but think it would have looked better as a coloured coin or even just the polished proof finish. I don't get any sense of 3D or depth and to me, for the cost of this coin, the polar bear in the fore front should look better than a kid's sticker. The coin above the 3D bit is very nice and the front with the finish and the swirls is gorgeous and looks better than pictured. I will avoid any more coins made using this technique in future. Adding to my disappointment is that this was a gift and thought I had given it enough time to arrive by ordering it a month before needed; it did not arrive in time.

Not Very Dimensional


Disappointed in the visual effect and image contrast between above and below water line. Thick coin holder is supposed to enhance dimensional effect? Too expensive.




Quite attractive.

A real beauty!


A beautiful image that invites us to contemplate the future of the polar bear. Especially nice to view with an LED magnifier lamp.
