2013 $25 O Canada - The Polar Bear (#2) Fine Silver (No Tax) 123120

The second 1 oz silver coin in the Royal Canadian Mint's new O Canada series focusing on iconic Canadian images, this beautiful coin celebrates the rich history and symbolism associated with the polar bear.

This 25-Dollar coin is certified to be 99.99% fine silver with a diameter of 38 millimetres and a metal weight 31.39 grams. The reverse design by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc presents an outer polished border framing an inner field engraved with the image of a mother polar bear playing with her two young cubs on a frozen Arctic hillside.

The massive mother sits patiently on her hindquarters in a snowdrift as one cavorting cub, standing on its hind legs, paws at her left arm. She turns to her cub, the two almost nose-to-nose, as though in good humour. In front of her, the other cub, viewed from its left side, stands on all fours surveying its frozen home, perhaps readying itself for a game of ice sliding.

Above the bears and to the right side of the image rises a large snowdrift topped by two snow-covered trees. The reverse also features a stylized polar bear paw print and the engraved word 'CANADA,' the date '2013,' and the face value of '25 DOLLARS.' The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
