Description
As spring returns to the Canadian landscape, the grizzly bear (Ursus arctos) emerges from its winter den to seek out food. For many, spring is also a time for finding a mate; during the ensuing mating season from late May to July, the male grizzly bear seeks out any scent trail that leads him to a receptive female. Barring competition from other males, this new couple will spend some time grazing and walking together, even cuddling and nuzzling one another, as courting leads to mating before the male returns to its solitary life. It is a timeless, ritualized process that is essential to the species' survival, and creates touching moments such as the one depicted on this fine silver coin's reverse.

  • About the Design:
    Designed by Canadian artist Lauren Crawshaw, your coin features a loving portrait of two grizzly bears forming a bond during the mating season. In the quiet of one of western Canada's forests, a male and a female have come together to begin their brief courtship. Seen in three-quarter profile but with its head turned to the side, the larger-sized male is on all fours in the grassy area where they have spent the day grazing. The smaller sized female is playfully standing against the side of the male, with large fore paws resting on either side of the male's shoulder hump. But the female's gaze is fixed upon the viewer, as though we are intruding upon an intimate moment. Packaging: Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clam shell with a graphic beauty box.
