Just slightly larger than the average housecat, the Arctic fox (Vulpes lagopus) is a silent and prolific hunter. The untamed and curious nature of the Arctic fox is brought to life in this fine silver collectable coin. The pelt of the Arctic fox is unmatched for warmth, sustaining it at temperatures below -50° Celsius. Its fur is brown, grey-brown, blue-grey, or dark blue-grey in the warmer months. In the long Arctic winter, most turn pure white, although some populations show lighter blue-grey through the winter phase. The fox's thick fur covers its small rounded ears and even the pads of its feet, for optimum warmth.
