Why add this limited mintage 1 oz. Silver 2023 Ultra High Relief Canadian Great Hunters Grizzly GEM Proof Coin to your collection?

This exquisite silver proof coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) is dedicated to the Grizzly Bear, an aggressive apex predator that is native to North America. The Great Hunters Grizzly coin is minted with an innovative technology that results in an Ultra High Relief reverse design that extends 1.4 mm above the surface of the coin. Acclaimed science and nature illustrator Emily Damstra created the coin’s magnificently detailed grizzly rendition. Ms. Damstra’s previous work includes stamp designs for the United Nations Postal Administration and coin imagery for products of the RCM and U.S. Mint, such as the eagle landing graphic on the reverse of the current Type-2 American Silver Eagle.

  • This 2023 Canadian Great Hunters Grizzly coin is struck from one Troy ounce of 99.99% fine silver.
  • The coin is minted with a gleaming proof finish.
  • The coin’s intricately rendered grizzly imagery on the reverse is showcased by a dramatic Ultra High Relief strike.
  • The obverse design of the coin features a tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth II.
  • The 36.15 mm diameter, $20 denomination coin is issued as legal tender of Canada.
  • The coin will ship in its original Mint packaging with an authenticity certificate.
  • Total mintage of this numismatic masterpiece is limited to only 6,000 pieces.

A Stunning Homage to the Majestic Grizzly

Obverse: On the obverse, Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is portrayed in standard relief in an elegant right-facing pose. Beside the effigy, the dates “1952” and “2022,” along with four tiny circles, memorialize her historic seventy-year reign and the four royal portraits that appeared on Canadian coinage. The mirrored background is lightly etched with a radial maple leaf pattern. The effigy, designed by award-winning Canadian portrait artist Susanna Blunt in 2003, is encircled by the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “CANADA,” “2023,” “D.G. REGINA” and “20 DOLLARS.”

Reverse: A massive grizzly roars from atop a rough boulder on the reverse, moments before leaping onto its chosen prey, with a dense spruce forest and scattered clouds in the background.
