Designed by Susanna Blunt in 2003, the obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Inscriptions include Her Majesty’s name, the coin’s denomination, and the year of issue.


The reverse features the iconic polar bear and its cub roaming their frozen, arctic habitat. Canada is home to one of the world’s largest populations of polar bears, though they are considered a vulnerable species. Yet, the polar bear is known as one of few species to survive in the harsh, frigid climate, making the bear a symbol of power and resilience.

About This Series

The 2013 Silver Polar Bear was the first 1.5 oz silver bullion coin minted by the Royal Canadian Mint. It started a series that went on to feature wildlife of the Canadian arctic like the arctic fox, snow falcon, and this polar bear and cub coin. The coins have the same diameter as standard issue RCM silver coins, but they are 50 percent thicker to accommodate the extra metal content.

Founded in 1908, the Royal Canadian Mint originally processed precious metals discovered in the Yukon Territories. The nation’s own minting capacity was the first step toward Canadian independence.

Shipping Info

Individual coins ship in plastic flips. Multiples of 15 ship in plastic tubes. These coins are in uncirculated condition, indicating a lack of flaws from handling such as wear and tear or blemishes from human hands. However, uncirculated coins may show minor flaws or imperfections like bag marks, weak design strikes, or toning.
