Polar bears are carnivorous bears living within a native range that consists primarily of the Arctic Circle. The bears are the only marine-based bears who swim regularly and move across open water and ice flows. The bears live mostly on a diet of seals, supported by other sea life as a source of food.
The reverse of the 2016 1 oz Proof Silver Canadian Canadiana Kaleidoscope Polar Bear coin features the amazing imagery of countless polar bears in various positions spread across the reverse face. The kaleidoscope imagery draws the eye in while the beautiful hues of blue capture the imagination.
On the obverse of all Canadian Kaleidoscope coins is the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s effigy appears on the obverse of all Canadian coinage, collectible and circulation alike, with a right-profile portrait created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt.
