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.
- Fourth issue in an exciting four-coin series showcasing Canadian predators.
- Radial lines on the obverse and reverse, and a micro-engraved maple leaf with year of issue ‘19’, provides enhanced security on this pure silver bullion coin for added peace of mind.
- Masterfully crafted by Royal Canadian Mint engravers using a variety of engraving techniques and finishes to bring depth and texture to this stunning image.
- A beautiful gift or collectible for those who love wildlife, natural images, original artwork, and Canadian themes.
