Home to the largest number of polar bears in the world, Canada takes pride in in sharing the land with these majestic animals. The polar bear is said to be the cultural icon and an animal that is quite playful despite its size. The Royal Canadian Mint managed to capture this softer side of polar bears by creating a coin with a touching image of two bears cuddling. The vivid colours in the background feature the stunning Arctic sunset and bring the image to life with top-notch engraving. With this coin, the Mint managed to show the Arctic’s top predator in a different light by creating an image that truly melts one’s heart. If you really like this coin and wish to know more about the design and this special species of animals, read on.
Polar Bear: A Symbol Of Strength And Endurance
The giant polar bear inhabits the northern territories of Canada and is mostly seen wandering on the ice-covered Arctic sea. People have the chance to see them during their migration period which begins in October and ends in early November. As for their diet, these animals feed on various kinds of seals and sometimes a walrus or a beluga whale, if they are fortunate enough to catch one. When the ice melts during summer, polar bears are forced to include berries and other food items in their diet onshore while waiting for the colder days when the ice eventually reforms. Due to their cultural and economic importance to Canada, a lot of effort is put into preserving polar bears and saving them from extinction.
A Softer Side Of Polar Bears Featured On The Coin
When you think of polar bears, affection somehow doesn’t immediately come to mind. That’s why the Mint wanted to show how these animals can be quite cute and cuddly in addition to being strong and powerful. The coin features two polar bears exchanging affection in their natural habitat. The person responsible for the reverse is W. Allan Hancock, a wildlife artist. The background combines vivid colours that bring out the beauty of the Arctic sky at sunset and the amazing engraving work that gives the ice a realistic look. The sunset beautifully reflects on the surface of the sea and an iceberg creates a turquoise tint that adds even more detail and colour to the scene. Underneath the two polar bears, the year 2019 and the word “CANADA” are engraved. The obverse carries the face value of 20 dollars and the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
