Description

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

This 2023 dated silver proof coin from the Royal Canadian Mint commemorates the Grizzly Bear, one of the Great Hunters of North America. The Grizzly is an apex predator, firmly anchored at the top of the food chain without any natural predators of its own in the wilderness. The limited mintage coin aptly features the fearless creature in a spectacular Ultra High Relief design. The coin was created by an innovative minting process which renders the grizzly image at an amazing height of 1.4 mm above the coin’s surface.

  • This 2023 Canadian Great Hunters Grizzly coin contains one Troy ounce of 99.99% fine silver.
  • The 36.15 mm diameter coin features a breathtaking proof finish.
  • The obverse design of the coin includes a memorial tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth II.
  • The wildlife image on the reverse is gorgeously enhanced by an Ultra High Relief strike.
  • The Canadian legal tender $20 denomination coin received the collectible First Releases (FR) attribution.
  • The perfectly graded coin is accompanied by its original authenticity certificate.
  • The coin features ModernCoinMart’s exclusive Canadian themed certification label.
  • The coin is part of a 6,000 piece limited mintage.

Picturesque Grizzly Design

Obverse: The obverse is graced with a standard relief right facing image of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, surrounded by a concentric maple leaf background pattern. This final Canadian coinage effigy of the late monarch was designed by acclaimed Canadian artist Susanna Blunt in 2003. The royal portrait is encircled by the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “CANADA,” “2023,” “D.G. REGINA” and “20 DOLLARS.” An homage to the Queen’s historic reign is positioned beside the portrait as the dates “1952” and “2022,” along with four small circles that represent the four distinct effigies that appeared on Canadian coinage during her seventy years on the throne.

Reverse: A stunning forest scene is illustrated on the reverse, with a majestic growling grizzly stalking forward at the center. This incredibly realistic rendition of the apex predator in the wild is the work of award-winning science illustrator Emily Damstra, designer of the landing eagle graphic which currently appears on the reverse of the U.S. Mint’s Type-2 American Silver Eagle.
