The Polar Bear coin is the first silver bullion coin in the collection of Arctic Wildlife series produced by the Royal Canadian Mint. Manufactured to the highest precision, the limited issue coins contain 1.5 troy ounces of silver struck with 99.99% purity and finished with a mirror-like background. Each coin is presented in a beautifully hand-crafted black beauty box with a lined maroon clamshell case making the Polar Bear an attractive piece of your coin collection or a thoughtful gift for a lucky recipient.
Produced by the Royal Canadian Mint, a world-class provider of branded investment products, the Polar Bear coin is a valuable asset and a prized silver bullion coin. Mintage was limited to just 17,500 coins and given the collection’s popularity, these 1.5 troy ounce coins are highly sought after assets and for long-term investors promise to command a sizeable fee. The coins are legal tender in Canada, but are also accepted by precious metal dealers all over the world so if you ever intend to sell these beautiful coins, you will have no problem finding a buyer willing to offer a good price. CoinInvest pay highly competitive prices for such coins and you can also invest them in pension, stocks and bonds. The Canadian Wildlife Arctic series proved to be tremendously successful with investors. Although they have a face value of $8 Canadian Dollars (CAD), the actual worth of the coins is much more in the current bullion market and promise to be an excellent return on investment.
The Canadian Polar Bear Silver coin was produced to honour one of Canada’s most beloved arctic creatures and is depicted in its natural habitat. The reverse of the coin features the colossus animal created by Canadian artist Germaine Arnaktauyok who demonstrates the bear’s strength and perseverance needed to survive its harsh environment. Also on the reverse are the words CANADA along the top ridge and FINE SILVER 1 1/5 oz. ARGENT PUR indicated the weight and country of origin. Underneath the bear are the numbers 9999 to indicate the coins have a fineness of 99.99% together with the initials of the artist, AG, below the bear’s back foot. The obverse side of the coin features the familiar profile of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II wearing a pearl necklace created by Susan Blunt in 2003. The year the coins were produced, 2013, together with the face value of 8 Dollars is also featured.
Ever since the Royal Canadian Mint established itself as a world-leader of bullion products with the launch of the iconic Maple Leaf in 1979, the refinery has received a global appreciation for the quality of engineering and fineness of its bullion coins. It is for these reasons why the RCM is able to produce special edition collections, and the Arctic Wildlife Series is no exception. Produced in 2013, the Polar Bear is the first coin of the arctic series and follows the success of the Wildlife series that began with the launch of the Timber Wolf in 2011. The Polar Bear is a symbol of power and determination and represents an iconic animal for Canadian’s because of its strength and ability to survive the harsh conditions of the arctic climate in the north of the country. The creatures are listed as one of the most vulnerable species and it is thought that less than 20,000 animals are believed to be in the wild. It is hoped the silver coins released in honour of the polar bear will raise awareness of the fight the species have to survive in the current climate changes taking place all around the world and help conservationists raise the money they need to help protect the surviving animals.
