Canada 2014 Arctic Fox 1½-Oz. Silver $8. Part of the popular Canadian Wildlife Series, this limited mintage, chunky $8 bullion coin was struck in 2014 with a hefty one and a half ounces of .9999 fine silver. Its reverse features the fluffy Arctic fox, a hardy creature native to Canada's frigid Arctic tundra. Perfectly adapted to survive the harsh conditions, its thick coat provides not just warmth, but seasonal camouflage; as winter lifts the fox turns from white to blueish-gray to brown. Queen Elizabeth II obverse. Brilliant Uncirculated quality.
Canada 2019 Polar Bear ½-Oz. Silver $2. Denominated $2, this half-ounce .9999 fine silver coin was struck by the Royal Canadian Mint and features the largest bear species, Ursus maritimus standing on an ice shelf. These beautiful white creatures inhabit Canada's northernmost territories, stalking seals — their favorite prey — from Arctic ice leads and shelves. Polar bears are excellent swimmers; their oily fur (which is actually translucent!) and thick layer of fat keep them warm while in the bitterly cold water. Brilliant Uncirculated.
