Arctic Fox Silver Fractional Proof Coin Set (2004)

Shipping calculated at checkout.

The Arctic Fox (Alopex lagopus), also known as the white fox, is found throughout the arctic circumpolar lands of the northern hemisphere. With its compact body form, well-furred ears, and thick hair on the soles of its feet, it is very well adapted to the arctic environment. 

The white fox feeds mostly on lemmings. It also scavenges wolf kills and ventures onto the sea ice to pick up the remains of seals left behind by polar bears. It is normally a solitary animal, except during the mating season or when it is lured to a feast. Unlike most wild animals, it has little fear of humans and often approaches them to have a closer look.

The Design:

The Arctic Fox designs on the reverse of the coins were originally featured on the 1993 Platinum coin set by Canadian wildlife artist Claudio D'Angelo. Four different scenes are portrayed: a vixen and its whelps in their summer pelage, a lone fox surrounded by a land of ice, two grown foxes in their natural habitat, and the graceful profile of a fox.
