2010 Canada $3 Wildlife Conservation - Polar Bear Sterling Silver

"I am the largest terrestrial carnivore in the world. Scientists have placed me in the marine mammal group because I live primarily on the frozen sea ice and feed almost exclusively on the seals that swim below it. While I may feed on a variety of seal species as well as belugas or narwhals, ringed seals are by far my favorite.

Men have long admired my hunting skills; the ways I stalk my prey, lie motionless by a breathing hole or imitate an ice floe are similar to techniques they might use themselves. According to legend, I am ultimately the one who decides whether the hunter's spear succeeds or fails; pursuing a polar bear requires an honest tribute of honor and respect. The sea ice is now changing. And so must I."

The second coin in this exciting four-coin series sets itself apart with its uncommon square shape the perfect setting to showcase the modern style used to feature Canada's wildlife, our legacy to protect.
