The majestic polar bear (Ursus martimus) is a fitting icon for a nation that, like itself, has been shaped by the forces of ice, wind, water, and stone. This pure platinum four coin collectable set features this iconic animal in its natural Arctic habitat. Stoic and strong, adaptable and clever, the polar bear has long captivated the Canadian imagination and been held up as a symbol of the northern spirit. At a hulking weight of up to 600 kilograms, the polar bear is considered the largest bear not only in North America, but the entire world.
