NEW!BULLION 1.50 OUNCE 99.99% PURE SILVER GRIZZLY (2017)
As Canada’s second-largest land-based carnivore, the powerful grizzly merits a substantial coin. Though this enigmatic animal is normally elusive, the Royal Canadian Mint has captured one here for you in this beautiful coin.
This apex predator has no natural enemies except when it is young. The greatest threat to its survival is habitat erosion and encroachment by humans, who affect grizzly populations directly through hunting, road collisions and other conflicts, as well as by influencing its distribution, presenting a particular challenge for these animals that require large natural ranges with adequate food in order to thrive.
Two unique features for cutting-edge security, including precise radial lines and micro-engraved lasered maple leaf in the coin field. In the centre of this mark, visible under magnification, is the numeral “17”, denoting the coin’s year of issue.
Features the distinctive bullion finish with unique frosted relief on a lined textured background.
A striking addition to any nature, animal or Canadiana-themed coins.
Rendered in exquisite detail by Royal Canadian Mint engravers.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc presents a profile portrait of a grizzly bear. The central feature of the image is the highly detailed full profile of a growling grizzly bear. The Royal Canadian Mint engravers have lent additional beauty to the artistry of the original design; the finishes on this coin really emphasize the dense fur, presented in full detail, bringing the intensity of the moment fully to life.
