UNIQUE! Arctic fox appears to gaze at its own reflection in the water! Order today!

A resourceful scavenger and a prolific hunter, the Arctic fox (Vulpes lagopus) is the smallest member of the Canidae family to be found in Canada's wilderness. It is also the only canine whose coat undergoes a dramatic seasonal change, from a short, brown summer pelt to the dense, snow-white winter coat that is unmatched for warmth. Moving on land or across the ice floes, the Arctic fox hunts for lemmings throughout the seasons, plunging through the snow to catch its tunnelling prey; when these are scarce, the fox travels far and wide to sustain itself on birds, eggs, fish and even leftovers from a polar bear's kill. Stealthy and elusive, the Arctic fox's ability to blend in with its surroundings makes it a powerful symbol of adaptability and survival in Canada's Far North.

About the Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Maurade Baynton, your coin features a beautifully-engraved wildlife portrait of an Arctic fox (Vulpes lagopus) on its journey across the ice and snow of Canada's Far North. Kept warm by its dense winter coat, the fox has an almost pensive expression as it stops at the water's edge; there it stands, quietly hovering over its reflection in the rippled water, which is masterfully rendered through the use of careful finishing techniques.


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

I bought this coin as part of the set and overall have been very happy with them. However, recently I have noticed that the fox has started to turn yellow. Why is this happening and is there a way to reverse it?
