Canada’s polar bears (Ursus maritimus) comprise more than half of the entire world population and they live primarily in the coastal regions of the Arctic, depending upon sea ice to hunt the ringed seal. This iconic Arctic mammal is brought to life on this fine silver collectable coin. The polar bear’s adaptations to its carnivorous lifestyle in the frozen north include a thick layer of subcutaneous fat, dense water- repellent fur the colour of snow, fur on the bottoms of its paws for traction and warmth, sharp claws, and an elongated body and huge forepaws that make polar bears great swimmers.
All collectable coins have been previously owned. Conditions will vary.
