2013 Canada Black Bear Cubs Special Edition Specimen Set

The reverse image, designed by Canadian artist Glen Loates, features two young black bear cubs smiling and playing on a fallen tree in the forest. One cub has three paws on the log, climbing up, as these bears are known to do, to get a better view.

The other cub leans against the tree and has an open mouth, perhaps panting from a lively play session with her sibling. A tree branch hangs in the background behind the cubs, and fallen leaves crunch under their paws. The reverse is engraved with the word 'CANADA,' the date '2013' and the face value of '2 DOLLARS.' The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
