Designed by Canadian artist Lauren Crawshaw, your first coin in your subscripton depicts the river valleys of western Canada, where the forests and tall mountains can be seen in the background. It is the fall salmon run; as the salmon make their arduous journey upstream in the fall, one grizzly bear has waded out into the shallow waters to make the catch of the day. When a fish suddenly jumps out of the water, the grizzly (seen in side profile) lunges forward with majestic strength, its large paws and sharp claws ready to capture its protein-rich meal.
Beautiful engraving depicts the grizzly in dimensional detail, from its open-mouthed expression to the long furs that are matted by the water. Each coin in your subscription is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a graphic beauty box.
