Gracing the front of this 1.5 oz silver coin is the Canadian Arctic fox in the comfort of its woodland home. It is depicted with its head peering behind it, perhaps to check for predators or to see how the newly fallen snow has changed the landscape.
From the soft texture of its plush coat to the snow-clad trees featured in the distance, collectors and wildlife enthusiasts are certain to be impressed by the detailed rendering of this feral creature and its wintry habitat on the coin. Such skillful engraving is enough to make the viewer feel though he or she could reach out and touch its soft fur. Also inscribed unto the front of the coin are the nation’s name along with the purity and weight of the coin.
The reverse side of the coin displays the effigy of Elizabeth II, where great care has been taken to capture her poised, yet serene countenance. She represents Canada’s continued allegiance to monarchy despite the end of its period under British rule. Framing her portrait are her name and the abbreviated Latin phrase, D. G. Regina.
