Product Details

The 2013 Canadian Silver Polar Bear is the first and currently the only coin produced by the Royal Canadian Mint to carry a weight of 1.5 oz. It is composed of .9999 pure silver, and has a diameter of 38 mm; the same as its 1 oz counterpart, making it exceptionally thick. The coin is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, as it is the newest addition of Polar Bear coins.

The coin's obverse features the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II designed by Susanna Blunt. The artist was chosen to create a likeness of the Queen in celebration of her 77th birthday. Her name is engraved at the top of the coin, with the eight dollar denomination and the year at the bottom.

On the coin's reverse is the image of the polar bear walking across the icy tundra. Less than 20,000 of these animals exist in the world, with one of the largest populations residing in Canada. The country's name is etched around the upper edge of the coin, while its .9999 purity and 1.5 oz weight appear at the bottom.

  • Unique 1.5 coins

    Like many of the other reviewers I bought these coins because of the unique size. 1.5 oz coins are rare, and I like adding rare coins to my collection. I found a few subtle imperfections on a couple of the coins, but other than that I am very satisfied. They are a little more expensive, but you get more silver so that is to be expected. I would recommend them.

  • Awesome coins

    Gainesville coins consistently has the best price. The $8 polar bear is a beautiful coin with lots of heft. The bear sculpture is shiny but the sky is duller by design. I found the scalloping on the edges to be a lot sharper than expected...clearly uncirculated. Get 15 so they will come in a tube. You will be happier that way.

  • It would have been fantastic

    I was very excited to see these coins listed on the gainsville website for the lowest price out of all the other vendors but it turned out to be a huge let down. The coin its self would be perfect if not for the fact they sent me a blemish coin with a huge scratch and smudge marks where someone decided to try to "buff it out". I would recommend buying this coin but when your paying such a high premium you expect to receive a coin in mint condition.

    they are a bit pricey but i decided to purchase one anyway because of the unique size. There were some very light scratch marks on the tallest features on the coin which was a bit of a letdown. It was securely packed and in a protective flip so idk how that happened. It is a bullion coin that is shipped from the mint in tubes of 15 so i guess slight damage is to be expected.

  • smooth transaction

    just received my polar bear and the first thing i noticed is how thick it is. They don't quite fit in a standard coin capsule due to the thickness so that was a bit of a bummer. They arrived in great shape.

  • so thick!

  • Beautiful, Solid Coins

    Beautiful coins, the extra thickness and weight give these carefully crafted Canadian Mint coins a solid feel. Granted, you do pay a premium on the uniqueness of this 1.5 ounce from any vendor, however I highly recommend this coin. Having purchased nearly a hundred Canadian Maple Leafs over the past eight months, this 1.5 ounce coin is a nice addition to any collection, and Gainesville Coins has repeated shipped high quality coins to me at a notably less expense price. Their packaging and price for shipments is also the best.

  • Sweet Coin!

    This is a very nice coin. I was late to teh party on the Maple Leaf Wildlife series, only getting some moose and antelope, but I am going to watch out for these coins. Thanks Gainesville...
