The 2014 1 oz Grizzly Bear Canadian Silver Coin from the Royal Canadian Mint’s $100 for $100 series is now available in brand new condition with a proof finish. It is only one of 50,000 coins ever produced, making it a highly coveted piece among investors and collectors alike. These coins ship in their original RCM packaging with COA. Each coin has been minted by the RCM with 1 troy ounce of .9999 fine silver and have been assigned a $100 CAD face value.
The obverse of the coin takes viewers to the forests of Canada to visit the ferocious grizzly bear in its native woodland domain. This artwork depicts the powerful predator wading through a nearby stream with a massive salmon attempting to free itself from the clenches of its strong jaw. From the soft tufts of its fur to the densely forested terrain of its home environment, no detail has been spared in providing an accurate portrayal of this fierce beast or the Canadian wilderness. Equally as impressive as the detailed rendering of this scene is its dynamic composition that makes viewers feel as though they were actually watching the grizzly up close as it wrestles its prey into submission. Also printed on the obverse side is the name, “Canada” along with the coin’s mintage year and denomination.
The reverse side of the coin pays tribute to Canada’s heritage with an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. This uncanny portrait features the regal monarch in profile with a calm but inviting expression on her face. Her effigy represents both Canada’s pride as a former colony of Great Britain as well as its ongoing allegiance to the benevolent figurehead. Encircling her profile is a border of text, which includes her title, “Elizabeth II,” and the Latin abbreviation “D.G. Regina.”
With its bold portrayal of Canada’s most iconic wilderness inhabitant, this 2014 Grizzly Bear $100 Canadian Silver Proof Coin is certain to appeal to wildlife enthusiasts as well as coin collectors and investors.
