Designed by Canadian big game wildlife sculptor Karl Lansing, your coin represents a sculptural celebration of a Canadian icon. Carefully shaped to exactly replicate a large adult grizzly bear (Ursus arctos), a silver gold-plated statuette emerges from the coin's flat surface for a true multi-dimensional look and feel. The grizzly's distinctive hump and concave facial profile are prominent, along with its rounded ears. As the bear pauses mid-step to look to the right, one yearns to touch the statuette's ridged surface, which beautifully mimics the bear's shaggy fur.Original Work of Art by Renowned Big Game Sculptor Karl Lansing
Designed by Canadian big game wildlife sculptor Karl Lansing, your coin offers a three-dimensional depiction of a species whose cry is synonymous with the remote beauty of the North American wilderness. Shaped like a grey wolf (Canis lupus), the cast-silver statue rises up from the coin’s surface to convey the wild canine’s strength as it steps across the uneven terrain. The 24-karat gold plating enhances the carefully sculptured details that give the statuette a life-like quality, including the varying texture of the wolf's fur and its famously strong jaw that is lifted towards the sky to release its iconic howl.

Despite its unusual shape, each coin is safely housed inside a dome-like capsule that protects it. The coin-cum-statue rests on a wooden plinth or base, lined with black velvet, that conceals a hidden compartment for the certificate. The entire base and dome assembly is protected by a black outer box. An individually-numbered certificate of authenticity is included.
