Product Description

Get the first coin ever to feature the technologically innovative Icy Glacial Edge Technology, developed by the Royal Canadian Mint! A Polar Bear mother nuzzles her cub in the frigid Arctic waters near an ice floe on this large, 5 troy ounce silver proof!

Investment Opportunity!Loving and strong, dedicated and ferocious, the polar bear (Ursus maritimus) has long been the most enduring symbol of the Arctic wilderness, where the sea ice that divides water from air is the cornerstone of life in the True North. And while the Arctic Ocean has a chilly reputation, there’s a sense of warmth in this familial tableau.

A mother polar bear and her cub enjoy a special moment as they surface in the cold water, their closeness reflected in the way they are positioned. But beyond the finely detailed, heart-melting scene, the icy water itself might be the scene-stealer. The engraved rim technology adds a sense of motion throughout the reverse and the obverse, where the ebb and flow of the waves push the ice fragments to the very edge in order to give the coin its uniquely “glacial” shape.

Engraved in 5 full troy ounces of the purest silver on the planet (as you would expect from the Royal Canadian Mint), the too-low mintage limit of just 1,200 may very well prove far too few to go around, so don't miss out - get yours before they sell out!

A Technological Tour-de-Force!
ANOTHER TECHNICAL INNOVATION! This celebration of the Canadian Arctic uses innovative engineering design and Virtual Minting to shape the coin’s edge and surface in a way that perfectly complements the “glacial” theme.

ENGRAVED WAVES! The waves on your coin are engraved which add a sense of movement on both sides of the coin, as though the surfaced bears and the effigy have set off the ebb and flow of the water.

CARVED EDGES! The theme extends onto the coin’s edge, which is fully engraved to mimic the jagged look of an icy edge.
AN ICE FRAME! Texturally engraved ice fragments surround the bears on the reverse, but they also come together to form a frame on the obverse.

A Masterwork of Wildlife Fine Art!
Designed by Tony Bianco, your coin travels to the True North for a glimpse of the polar bear (Ursus maritimus) at play. The engraved scene is a touching portrait of a mother and cub swimming in the cold waters of the Canadian Arctic, their closeness reflected in the way they are positioned as they emerge from the icy depths. Textural engraving adds a sense of movement across the surface of the water, where the ebb and flow generated by the swimmers’ movements pushes the floating ice right to the coin’s edge. The theme continues onto the fully engraved edge, which mimics the look of jagged ice and gives the coin its unique shape.
