The polar bear is the largest extant predatory carnivore alive in the world today. Though it is a distant relation of the massive Grizzlies of the brown bear family, the polar bear can be considered the larger cousin of the two with male boars reaching a weight of 1,543 pounds at a maximum. Due to its vast stretches of Arctic ice shelves, Canada is a popular nation of issue for silver coins with polar bear images. Today, you have the chance to get 2020 Canadian Polar Bear 1/2 oz Silver Coins online from Provident Metals.
The broader bear family, known as Ursidae, is thought to have split genetically from other carnivores around 38 million years ago. Within this family, bears are believed to emerge as a distinctive subfamily known as Ursinae around 4.2 million years ago. From there, the various subspecies of bears that still survive today are thought to have largely diverged from the polar bear within the family between 603,000 years ago and 400,000 years ago.
On the obverse side of 2020 Canadian Polar Bear 1/2 oz Silver Coins is a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown in right-profile relief without a crown on her head. The portrait was created in 2003 and is the second from a Canadian artist during the Queens reign and the first during her reign to lack a crown within the portrait. Inscriptions include Elizabeth II, D.G. Regina, and 10 Dollars.
The reverse field of the 2020 Canadian Polar Bear Silver Coin showcases a polar bear as it looks out over the Arctic landscape from a high point.

Inscriptions include “Canada 2020,” “9999,” and “Fine Silver 1/2 oz Argent Pur.”
