A Highly Detailed, Original Work of Art
The design by Canadian wildlife artist Pierre Leduc presents a profile portrait of a roaring grizzly bear. Viewed from its right side, the grizzly’s large, thick-furred head is raised with mouth open in a roar or growl. The bear’s characteristic small fur-covered ears, sharp teeth, and small dark eyes are presented in beautifully engraved detail, bringing the intensity of the sonic moment fully to life. In the background, a river roars through a rocky and remote northern wilderness of bushy undergrowth dotted by sparse evergreens. The sky rises above the bear and wilderness, hand-polished to a glowing proof finish.

The Fearsome Grizzly Bear
Grizzly Bear It's a true thrill to wildlife lovers when they catch a glimpse of the mythic grizzly in the wild! The fearsome grizzly bear is probably the most dangerous land mammal in North America. These massive and powerful animals can weigh up to 1,500 pounds and stand up to 8 feet tall on their hind legs, yet are capable of running at speeds up to 35 miles per hour! Perhaps best known as salmon hunters during the spawning season, grizzlies are opportunistic omnivores, eating almost anything in season, from fruits, nuts, honey and berries, to insects, grubs and small mammals, to much larger prey. As such they can be very dangerous to humans, especially when startled or when defending their young. One bite from a grizzly bear can crush a person's skull, so powerful are its jaws. Although they were held in high esteem for eons by Native Americans because of their spirits, grizzlies have been eradicated throughout most their range in North America, partly by hunters for trophies, and partly because of simple fear.
