The swift arctic hare (Lepus arcticus) is a study in adaptability, embodying the unique traits necessary for life in the Canadian Arctic. This fascinating animal is captured in dramatic detail on this fine silver collectable coin. North America’s largest hare relies on camouflage and breathtaking agility in a frozen habitat that offers few places to hide from predators. Environment-specific adaptations, like short rounded ears, a foreshortened fur-covered snout, powerful hind legs, and front claws for digging in the snow, have enabled it to thrive in the open tundra for millennia.
