Shipping calculated at checkout.

Steady on its feet, the majestic polar bear uses its large paws to move through the changing landscape—be it deep snow, Arctic waters or over thin ice. This superb pure silver coin showcases a true icon of Canada's North in its habitat, engraved in outstanding detail. Like the distinctive paw prints placed all along the coin's edge, this outstanding collectible leaves a lasting impression.

  • ICONIC SYMBOL OF THE TRUE NORTH! This superb wildlife portrait of a polar bear captures the majesty of the Canadian wilderness.

Designed by Canadian artist Claudio D'Angelo, your coin features a detailed side profile view of a polar bear (Ursus maritimus) against the landscape of the Canadian Arctic. Moving across the snow-covered ice and rocks, a polar bear extends its elongated neck to vocalize, while its gaze remains fixed on what lies beyond the coin's rim. Advanced finishing techniques enhance the precision engraving that captures the polar bear's likeness in stunning detail, from the texture of its dense fur to its facial features. Its left forepaw is suspended in air, mid-step; meanwhile, the sea ice gives way to open water in the background, where tall glaciers and icebergs rise up along the horizon. The entire design gains an added sense of movement through the bear's distinctive paw prints, which are engraved on the coin's edge in a continuous pattern.


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