Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Few animals are as emblematic of Canada’s rugged, unspoiled wilderness as the grizzly bear (Ursus arctos). Playing a complex role in the biodiversity of western and northern Canada, this largely solitary animal has long been revered as an important cultural and spiritual symbol. With this superb Grizzly Bear series of coins, the Royal Canadian Mint celebrates the majestic animal by depicting different scenes in the life of a grizzly bear.

The first of a new Grizzly Bear series that includes 4 silver coins, 1 gold coin and 1 platinum coin, with each one drawing the viewer into the grizzly bear’s way of life in the Canadian wilderness. Crafted from 99.99% pure silver, this 1 oz coin features a stunning portrait of a grizzly bear catching a fish during the annual salmon run in one of western Canada’s breathtaking river valleys. With impeccable precision, beautiful edge lettering indicates the coin’s metal weight.

The reverse image by Canadian artist Lauren Crawshaw transports the viewer to the river valleys of western Canada, where the forests and tall mountains can be seen in the background. It is the fall salmon run; as the salmon make their arduous journey upstream in the fall, one grizzly bear has waded out into the shallow waters to make the catch of the day. When a fish suddenly jumps out of the water, the grizzly (seen in side profile) lunges forward with majestic strength, its large paws and sharp claws ready to capture its protein-rich meal. Beautiful engraving depicts the grizzly in dimensional detail, from its open-mouthed expression to the long furs that are matted by the water.

Previous series for the Bald Eagle, Bison and White-Tailed Deer sold out quickly and with a low mintage of only 6,500, this coin is sure to be a sought-after coin.
