1 oz. Fine Silver Coin - Polar Bear - Mintage: 8,500 (2014)

Shipping calculated at checkout.

The polar bear is white and powerful, just like the snow and ice that have shaped North America. Researchers believe the polar bear once shared a common ancestor with the grizzly but branched off about 150,000 years ago to live in the Arctic. Its Latin name (Ursus maritimus) reflects the fact that it spends much of its time on the sea ice in search of seals. The polar bear has developed an acute sense of smell to locate seals in the snow, and its teeth and claws have also evolved to capture and consume its favourite prey. Other special Arctic adaptations include dense layers of fat, fur-covered footpads, and a thick, white pelt that camouflages the polar bear so it’s almost invisible against the snow; but with this coin’s coloured design, all the majesty of this great bear comes into full view for you to enjoy.

Fine silver beautifully enhanced with colour.
