Canada's North is one of its most distinct regions, with vast open spaces, unique flora and fauna, and a sense of adventure that is missing from much of our world. Ursus Maritimus, the 'sea bear' or 'polar bear,' is the world's largest predator and, arguably, also one of the most beautiful; sadly, the unprecedented thawing of the Arctic ice caps poses a huge risk to their ongoing survival as a species. Polar bears spend so much time on ice that they are considered to be marine mammals.

These coins capture the majestic polar bear.

The obverse is struck with the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

This coin is a special production piece and is not part of the Canadian Wildlife Series.


The Royal Canadian Mint is known as one of the most reputable mints in the world. The Ottawa Branch of the Royal Mint opened in 1908 and was renamed The Royal Canadian Mint in 1931 when control was transferred to the Canadian government. The Royal Canadian Mint is renowned for producing some of the highest quality and purity of gold and silver bullion coins and bars in the world. Their high standards for excellence and quality allowed them to be the first refinery to manufacture 9999 fine gold bullion coins in 1982, as well as the first to reach 99999 fine gold purity in 1999.
