Steady on its feet, the majestic polar bear (Ursus maritimus) uses its large paws to move through the changing landscapebe it deep snow, Arctic waters, or over thin ice. This fine silver coin walks in the footsteps of North Americas largest land carnivore, whose resilience makes it a powerful and fitting icon of the Canadian Arctic. The reverse design by Canadian artist Claudio DAngelo 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 coins rim. Advanced finishing techniques enhance the precision engraving that captures the polar bears 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 bears distinctive paw prints, which are engraved on the coins edge in a continuous pattern. A magnificent wildlife portrait of an iconic symbol of the True North! Second coin in a series that features animal prints engraved all along the coins edge in a continuous pattern! Enhanced by various finishing techniques, precision engraving captures the polar bears iconic features and its Arctic habitat in outstanding detail.
