The obverse of each 2017 1 oz Proof Silver Canadian Glistening North: The Polar Bear Coin features the common right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This version of the Queen’s image was created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt and has been used on all Royal Canadian Mint coins. On the obverse of this coin, you can also see the Queen’s name, country of issue, year of issue and the phrase “D.G. Regina.”

The reverse of these coins features the spectacular image of a polar bear standing on top of a mound of snow. In the background, mountains can be seen covered with a dusting of snow. The background is colorized and features shades of light blue and white.

What makes this coin truly special is the snow. For the first time ever, the Royal Canadian Mint used diamond glitter to really make the snow sparkle like it really would. This new technology makes these coins some of the most unique on the market. The diamond glitter is sealed onto the coin to make sure that these coins never lose their sparkle.

The Royal Canadian Mint was founded in 1908 in Ottawa. The mint opened a second facility in Winnipeg in the 1980s to help keep up with demand and to allow for high production volume. The RCM creates all legal tender coinage for Canada.
