About the Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Glen Loates, your coin features a detailed portrait of the white-furred black bear known as the Kermode bear or spirit bear of British Columbia’s coast. The bear’s face dominates the entire reverse field of the coin, its intense eyes taking centre stage as it seems to stare directly at the viewer. The bear’s dark nose and mouth, dense fur, and stunning brown eyes are given dimensional detail using various engraving and shading techniques. The eyes make an even greater impact with the application of amber-toned enamel irises and black pupils.
