2014 Canada $100 The Grizzly 1 oz. Fine Silver Coin (2nd coin in the $100 for $100 Series) (TAX Exempt) - 126867.

A dynamic image of one of Canada's most reclusive, massive, and iconic land mammals in its natural environment exquisitely engraved on a stunning fine silver coin.

The reverse image by Canadian artist Claudio D'Angelo portrays a massive grizzly bear splashing dynamically through a remote river, having just caught a salmon in its mouth. Presented from the front with its vast head turned to the left side of the coin, the image highlights the large bear's extremely long front claws and the large musculature of its chest and shoulders.

Its platter-sized front paws slap at the churning water as its entire body pounces with graceful strength. Its thick, wet, shaggy fur and colour gradations are beautifully rendered by careful engraving. In the background, a conifer-lined rocky shore gives way to vast mountains on the horizon, above which rises a heavily clouded sky.

While the artistry of the design illustrates the beauty and power of the grizzly, the exceptional textural treatment illustrates the masterful technique by which the engravers have achieved depth and tone through engraving alone.
