Grizzly bears are known for their fearless and intimidating demeanor. As the largest bear species in North America, the grizzly bear is an apex predator in the wild. The only real threat to the grizzly bear is man. The new $100 Sculpture of Majestic Canadian Animal Series kicks off with a coin that honors these ferocious beasts. Right now, you can purchase the 2017 Proof Canadian $100 Sculpture of Majestic Canadian Animals: Grizzly Bear Silver Coin from Provident Metals.
Each of the coins in this listing redefines what we all know as a coin. Instead of having a flat reverse, you will see a 3D sculpture of a grizzly bear with a gold-plated finish.
The obverse face of each coin showcases the image of Queen Elizabeth II as designed by Susanna Blunt in 2003. This right-profile image is the latest to appear on Canadian coinage, as Her Majesty has been on all Canadian coinage since 1952 when she was crowned.
The reverse image of each coin is actually a sculpture. This sculpture depicts a grizzly bear in stunning detail. In fact, you can even see individual hairs on the bears body as it walks along the banks of a stream. The sculpture is plated with gold.
The Royal Canadian Mint opened its doors in 1908 as an offshoot of Great Britains Royal Mint. However, demand increased so much that a second facility opened in the 1980s to help the original Ottawa branch. This new location now produces coins out of Winnipeg.
