Few North American species are as revered as the enigmatic grizzly bear. A long-time symbol of strength and of our wild spaces, Ursus arctos horribilis has the reputation of being a skilled hunter, a resourceful scavenger and a fiercely protective mother. Grizzly bears prefer to remain out of sight in Canada’s western forests and Arctic tundra, but when it does come into view, this strong and intelligent creature instantly commands all our attention and respect — especially when its likeness is captured in Ultra High Relief (UHR), as seen on this coin from the Royal Canadian Mint.
