The Canadian polar bear is one of the most unique bear species in the world and is naturally found only within the Arctic Circle region. The bear is a common fixture of coin designs from the Royal Canadian Mint, gracing both gold and silver coin collections. Today, you have the chance to get certified-perfect 2013 Canadian Polar Bear 1/4 oz Gold Coins online at Provident Metals.
Polar bears have adapted to life in the Arctic Circle over the course of thousands of years. Though related to the North American brown bear, and closely related to the Kodiak bears, the polar bear is distinct in a number of ways. It has larger paws that enable it to move from ice shelf to ice shelf by swimming in the Arctic Ocean. It also uses this ability to hunt for seals and other marine mammals as a source of food. Its white fur is another adaptive feature that makes it different from other bears in its genealogical family.
On the obverse of 2013 Canadian Polar Bear 1/4 oz Gold Coins is an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. This portrait is the fourth-generation image of the Queen to grace Canadian coins and the first to feature her effigy without a crown. Designed by Susanna Blunt in 2003, it is also just the second monarch portrait from a Canadian artist. Inscriptions on this field ELIZABETH II, 10 DOLLARS, and 2013.
The reverse face of the 2013 Canadian Polar Bear Gold Coin features an image of the polar bear. In this years design, the massive polar bear is shown in left-profile relief as it walks along the frozen tundra of the Arctic Circle. The design includes endless snowdrifts in the background and inscriptions of CANADA, 9999, and FINE GOLD 1/4 OZ OR PUR.
Canadian polar bear coin designs are commonly used on unique releases. For example, these 1/4 oz gold coins are a standalone gold offering, with other examples of polar bear designs coming on 1.5 oz and 1/2 oz silver coins from the Royal Canadian Mint.
