Celebrate the history and artistry of Canadian circulation coinage with this pure silver Two Dollar piece-part of the Royal Canadian Mint’s new series featuring Canada’s six circulation coins. Each beautiful coin is composed of five ounces of pure silver and features selective colour on the reverse. Drawing its inspiration from minting itself, this coin makes an exquisite gift for someone who appreciates coins. This 5-ounce fine silver 2-dollar coin features Canadian artist Brent Townsend’s version of the coin’s iconic polar bear design, first issued with the introduction of the 2- dollar circulation coin in 1996. This design has been used continuously on Canadian “toonies” with a number of notable exceptions. The reverse features Brent Townsend’s image of an adult polar bear standing on an ice floe, gazing out over the early summer Arctic landscape. The central scene is fully coloured in natural shades, including the blue water and mountains, white ice floe, and the polar bear’s yellow-white coat. The reverse is also engraved with the word “CANADA” and the face value of “2 DOLLARS”. The obverse is engraved with the date “2016” and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
