Polar bear coin designed by Emily Damstra.

This week the Royal Canadian Mint released a new $20 pure silver commemorative coin featuring Emily’s illustration of a swimming polar bear. You can see it at the Mint’s  website. The card that comes with the coin includes a sketch of the bear, also by Emily.

The part of the bear above the water line is shiny, and the sky has a different finish than the water. I like the different finishes. – Emily
