Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
This four-coin series explores the predator and prey relationship of the Arctic fox and the Arctic hare in Canada’s Far North, where the harsher climate necessitates unique adaptations that have set these two species apart. The second coin presents a close-up view of the Arctic hare’s features in a traditional wildlife portrait.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc features a traditional side-profile view of an Arctic hare (Lepus arcticus) in a natural setting during the winter season. Intricate engraving captures the hare’s features with extraordinary precision on such a small scale, giving it a life-like quality that conveys the texture of its famously warm winter fur. The hare is aware of the predator’s presence beyond the image field; keeping its large eyes trained on its foe, the hare moves its dark-tipped ears to detect the warning sounds of approaching danger.

Smallest gold coin! The coin’s 11-millimetre diameter is the smallest sized gold coin produced by the Royal Canadian Mint.
