2013 $10 O Canada The Polar Bear Fine Silver (#4) (TAX Exempt)

The fourth coin in the Royal Canadian Mint's exciting new O Canada series focusing on iconic Canadian images, celebrates a symbol of the power and vastness of Canada's northern landscape, the Polar Bear. In a nation dominated by weather extremes, the Polar Bear's ability to survive and thrive in the harshest climate reflects Canadians' stalwart pragmatism and spirit of adventure.

This 10-Dollar coin is certified to be 99.99% pure silver with a diameter of 34 millimetres and a metal weight of 15.87 grams. The reverse design by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc presents an outer border framing an inner field engraved with the image of a polar bear standing on an ice floe.

Viewed in profile from its right side, the bear's unique features, including its small ears, elongated neck, enormous mass, and light-toned fur are realistically rendered. The image centres on the polar bear, but its Arctic environment is clearly evident in the jagged floating ice upon which the bear stands and the frozen, wind-blown sea, dotted with icebergs, that stretches toward the horizon behind the bear.

The reverse also features a stylized polar bear paw print and the engraved word 'CANADA,' the date '2013,' and the face value of '10 DOLLARS.' The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
