Life in the Canadian Arctic is one of brutal survival. In order to live, both mankind and the animal species that call it home must go to great lengths to make it from year to year in this harsh and rugged place.
In this unique 2016 2 oz Proof Canadian Silver Canadas Icy Arctic Coin release youll find a distinctly different take on coin design on the reverse. The imagery from Bonnie Ross looks at the Arctic Circle as though one were in space directly above the circle, looking down at it from above on the Canadian continent.
The reverse side of the Icy Arctic Coin includes multiple images married together in a beautiful design that encompasses all of the natural wonder of Canadas flora, fauna, and human activities. Included in the design on the meandering landscape are icebergs, ice floes, open water featuring ice fishing, dog sledding and snowmobiling on land, and animals ranging from the polar bear and Arctic wolf to the caribou and muskox.
On the obverse of each of these coins is the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty has appeared on the obverse of Canadian currency since her ascension to the British throne in 1952, with this particular design created in 2003 by Canadian artist Susanna Blunt.
All 2016 2 oz Proof Canadian Silver Canadas Icy Arctic Coins ship to you encapsulated for protection and arrive inside of a paperboard box that features colorized imagery from the Icy Arctic regions of Canada.
