Grizzly bears were first noted and recorded in the wild by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark on their journey westward to chart the western reaches of the growing United States. The massive bears are larger than other brown bears, and make up the largest subspecies of brown bears in North America.
Officially known as the North American brown bear, the grizzly is much larger than other North American bear species and has no natural predator in the wild throughout any of its range. Grizzly bears were previously found as far south as the northern states of present-day Mexico up to the northwestern tip of Alaska. Today, they are found in small stretches of the Rocky Mountains in Wyoming and Montana up through west and northwest Canada into Alaska.
The reverse of all 2017 10 oz Silver Canadian Grizzly Bear Coins feature an imposing figure of a grizzly as it stands at the edge of a cliff bellowing its deafening roar out into a valley. These coins feature a serrated edge design with the modern security features of RCM coins, which include the maple leaf privy mark and radial lines.
On the obverse is Susanna Blunt’s 2003 depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s effigy on the obverse of all Canadian coinage is featured in right-profile relief and includes the engravings of the face value along with it.
