A beautiful gift or collectible for those who love wildlife, natural images, original artwork, and Canadian themes. The reverse design by Canadian artist Glen Loates presents a full-body portrait of a grizzly bear. Viewed from the front, the massive grizzly raises its powerful right front claw, perhaps in a display of dominance or aggression. Its mouth open to reveal its large teeth, the grizzly displays its full bulk to stunning effect. The large head, muscular chest and front legs, enormous neck hump and gargantuan body lead back to a low rump and squat, powerful hind legs.
The grizzlys distinctive bushy silver-tipped fur is rendered in stunning detail, making the huge animal appear even larger. The grizzly stands atop a rocky outcropping. In the background we see the jagged peaks of its western highland habitat. The reverse is engraved with the word CANADA, the date 2014, and the face value of 5 DOLLARS.
The outer frame of the image also features a miniature stylized grizzly head in profile. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. Each coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell case lined with black flock and protected by a customized beauty box. Are also available for an additional charge.

Many coin dealers search all coins when they are received from the Mint. They "cherry-pick" the best coins. Then submit them to be graded, certified, and slabbed by PCGS, NGC, ANACS, etc. When a dealer searches coins, those that they sell in original Mint packaging are only lesser quality coins. Photos: When a listing offers multiples of the same coin, one coin is picked at random and photographed.
Since all coins offered in that listing are essentially identical, the coin photographed is representative of all coins offered. Surface areas that appear black on some proof coin photos are actually highly polished, mirror-bright metal reflecting the color of the camera. We often include proof coin photos with the coin slightly tilted to better depict the mirror bright surfaces. However, tilting the coin may resulting one side being slightly out of focus.
Whenever possible, we use actual photos of our coins, rather than just stock artwork from the Mint. We frequently update and upgrade the photos that appear with our listings, using improved cameras and lenses and better lighting. We will honor your requests for additional photos as quickly as our schedule permits.
