Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
This one ounce fine silver coin with a face value of $25 boasts a beautiful depiction by Canadian artist Julius T. Csotonyi of the elusive arctic fox. This creature was built to stand the test of extreme Arctic cold, from which they are protected with thick, deep fur and a good supply of body fat. The fur of the Arctic Fox is unique in that it has a chameleon-like adaptation, changing colour from snowy-white in the winter to a patchy brown in the summer. This small Arctic dweller (it is only slightly larger than the average housecat) is seen on this coin leaping into the image with the ethereal Northern Lights exploding behind it. Stylized mountains and icebergs add to the beauty of the scene, while the textures across the surface of the coin are brought to life by the expert craftsmanship of the Royal Canadian Mint; a proof finish with mirror background echoes the crisp whiteness of the Arctic environment. A limited mintage of 8,500 and the fineness of 99.99% fine silver make this coin a desirable addition to any collection of Canadiana or nature-themed coins.
