The reverse image by Emily Damstra features a splendid side profile of a majestic adult grizzly bear. Despite the coin’s miniscule size, the bear’s facial features are rendered in magnificent detail. Here, the concave facial profile is noticeable as it extends from between the eyes down to the nose tip. The grizzly’s short, rounded ears rise up from its shaggy fur, which is brought to life thanks to finely detailed engraving.
