“Aww”-inspiring privy mark
The “paw print” privy mark is unique to this line of Premium Bullion coins, and for 2023, each coin is marked by side-by-side mother and cub paw prints—a cute nod to the family theme.
Vivid radial lines fill the field to create a dramatic sunburst finish that adds movement, energy and excitement to the engraved art.
DID YOU KNOW?
The polar bear is the largest land carnivore, yet it is surprisingly tiny (and helpless) at birth! Blind, toothless, and covered in a very fine fur that makes them look hairless, newborn cubs only measure about 30 centimetres long and weigh less than a kilogram. Cubs grow rapidly during the first months, and they usually stay by their mother’s side for two to three years.
Based on a design by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc, each coin’s reverse features a portrait of a polar bear (Ursus maritimus) mother with two cubs in an Arctic setting. One cub has caught the mother’s attention by standing and leaning against her, while a second cub remains close by. Marked by a “mother and cub” paw print privy mark, the tender scene is set against vivid radial lines that create a dramatic sunburst finish. The reverse includes the coin’s purity and weight, the word “CANADA”, and the year “2023”. The obverse features a sunburst finish behind the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The obverse also bears a special marking that includes four pearls symbolizing the four effigies that have graced Canadian coins and the double date of her reign.
