Hold the haunting gaze of the legendary spirit bear in the palm of your hand and be transfixed! The reverse image, designed by Canadian artist Glen Loates, features a detailed portrait of the white-furred black bear known as the Kermode bear or spirit bear of British Columbias Central Coast and North Coast. The bears 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 bears 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. Third coin in the annual series of 99.99% pure silver 1-kilogram coins featuring selective enamelling. Design, colour, and engraving intersect to stunning effect in this rendering of Canadian wildlife artist Glen Loates Kermode bear portrait. Each strand of the bears unique pale fur is engraved in finest detail, while the elegant animals intense stare is enhanced by amber-toned enamel. An exceptionally low mintage of only 500 coins means that this rare collectible is sure to sell out, just like the first two coins in the series.
