Description of obverse and reverse
There is an unmistakably life-like quality to this coin's intricately engraved reverse, which features a magnificent side profile of an adult grizzly bear. The rare, up-close glimpse of this mighty animal’s facial features allows the viewer to examine its concave profile that extends from between the eyes down to the nose tip. The grizzly’s short, rounded ears rise up from the bear’s shaggy fur, which is rendered with exceptional textural detail that adds to the depth, dimension and dynamic nature of the overall design.
A brief annotation
It is a symbol of strength, of Canada’s wilderness; an imposing species that is both feared and revered, the grizzly bear is one of the strongest mammals to inhabit Canada’s western provinces. In paying tribute to this important wildlife species, this unforgettable coin offers a unique opportunity to admire the strength and beauty of the grizzly bear’s distinctive features, all masterfully engraved to create a masterpiece of realistic wildlife portraiture. The coin was minted and launched in 2014 and is intended for the next year.
