Capture the grandeur and majesty of Canada’s iconic polar bear with this 2022 $5 one ounce .9999 fine silver coin. Combining Canadian wildlife art, collectability, and investment in fine silver, this limited edition coin is affordably priced and comes housed in a printed display presentation card. Mintage is limited to 35,000. HST/GST exempt.
Designed for collectors and precious metal buyers alike, the brilliant uncirculated coin’s wildlife-themed reverse includes a “paw print” privy mark and vivid radial lines, a new sunburst finish that adds amazing visual energy to an already inspiring portrait.
The design is based on art by Glen Loates and features a full-body portrait of a polar bear in its natural Arctic environment. The polar bear has its head turned to the side while standing atop a small rise in an ice field. The reverse includes the coin’s purity and weight, the word “CANADA” and the year “2022”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
Did you know that Canada is home to roughly 15,000 polar bears, or about 2/3 of the world’s total population. Polar bears inhabit the northern regions of several provinces, but most of the population is found in Nunavut and the Northwest Territories.
