2020 Canada $25 Multifaceted Animal Head – Grizzly Bear Fine Silver (No Tax)

Innovative World First coining technology. The Multifaceted Grizzly Bear Head features an ingenious approach to coin design. This second issue in the 3-coin series is the second proof-quality coins struck with extraordinarily high relief (EHR) – a new term in the world of minting. EHR is defined by an impressive relief that reaches to around 6 millimeters on a coin of only 36 millimeters in diameter and 1 oz. in weight. Ultra-high relief coins barely reach 2 millimeters of height and standard relief coins remain almost flat in comparison.

Exceptional frosting. The Grizzly Bear Head's multiple facets, composed of 498 polygons, are crafted in proof finish to reflect light from various angles. The result is a coin that sparkles like a diamond. The highest quality proof finish combined with the EHR technique gives it an unequaled brilliance and sharpness. A lightly frosted background accentuates the sparkle of the central main design, giving its already dazzling subject even more emphasis. On the obverse, multiple light-relief facets provide similar luminous, reflective effect.

Unique sculpting. The exceptional three-dimensionality of extraordinarily high relief allows the Grizzly Bear Head to elevate mere embossing to a sculpture. The relief is so extreme and pronounced that the modeling and tooling work had to be approached in an unorthodox manner. The engravers had to adapt their normal coin modeling procedures, CNC machining strategies and tool polishing methods to accommodate such an extreme relief.
