Each of these 2017 $100 Proof Canadian Sculpture of Majestic Animals Grizzly Bear coins has a stunning obverse youve never seen on a coin before. The obverse has a 3D sculpture of a grizzly that literally comes off the coin at you, with a gold-plated finish that helps it stand out visually from the silver coins surface.
On the reverse of the Grizzly Bear coin youll find Lansings sculpture of a grizzly. The detail on the sculpture is such that you can make out the individual hairs in the grizzlys fur as it walks along the banks of a winding stream in the statue.
The obverse side of the 2017 $100 Proof Canadian Sculpture of Majestic Animals Grizzly Bear coin features Queen Elizabeth IIs effigy. The right-profile portrait of Her Majesty appears on all Canadian coinage, and this 2003 design from Susanna Blunt is just the latest to appear since 1952.
Each coin in this collection ships to you inside of a wooden circular box for perfect display, and includes a black box for shipping to protect both parts.
The Royal Canadian Mint is the official sovereign mint of Canada, and was opened in 1908 with a facility in the national capital of Ottawa. There is now a secondary facility in Winnipeg, opened in the 1980s.
