The polar bear is one of the most majestic creatures to walk the face of the planet and is found exclusively within the Arctic Circle on planet Earth. Few countries have as much Arctic territory as Canada, and as such these creatures are a common sight in the Arctic wilds of northern Canada.

On the reverse of 2018 1/2 oz Canadian Polar Bear Silver Coins is the image of one of these massive creatures standing on the edge of an ice shelf. There is a rocky landmass in the distance across a body of open water. Among the polar bears’ adaptations for Arctic life are its large, furry feet with short, sharp, stocky claws that aid them in maneuvering through snow and ice.

The obverse of 2018 1/2 oz Canadian Polar Bear Silver Coins includes the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This is the fourth-generation design for Canadian coinage and is available to you from Susanna Blunt. Both sides of the coin have the Royal Canadian Mints radial line background field as an enhanced security measure against counterfeiting.
