About the Design:

Canadian artist Trevor Tennant created an immersive design that takes you within feet of a polar bear navigating the sea ice. Exceptional detail and beautifully executed colour capture the subtleties in the bear’s thick coat, and the warm glow of the setting sun that fills the Arctic sky and mirror-like openings in the sea ice. When you expose your coin to black light, a different scene appears: Day turns to night as the sun sets behind a fiery orange horizon, and northern lights fill the sky with a ribbon of glowing yellow and green.


Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
