2018 Canadian $30 Dimensional Nature: Polar Bears - 2 oz Fine Silver Coin

 

The Canadian Arctic is a place of beautiful extremes that are home to some of the world's most fascinating creatures, including the mighty polar bear. Our latest colour innovation, Dimensional Paint, creates the illusion of peering through real water on the reverse, where the split view offers a 3D-like glimpse of a mother diving with one cub, while another cub looks on from the engraved world above the waterline.

Dive into 3D-like waters in this colourful tribute to the True North.

Design

Designed by Tony Bianco, your coin travels to the floe edge in the Canadian Arctic, where a split view offers a glimpse of life above and beneath the sea ice. Above the water, an engraved polar bear cub steps to the edge of a gleaming iceberg and peers into the icy sea. The waterline forms the boundary between this silvery world and the colourful one beneath the surface, where a mother polar bear and her cub have plunged into Canada's northern waters. The first-time use of Dimensional Paint adds a 3D-like effect to the icy underwater scene, where colour layers create the illusion of real water atop the coin's surface. The reverse includes the engraved words “CANADA 2018”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
