The polar bear is one of the enduring symbols of the wilds of the Arctic Circle. These massive, hearty beasts live in near-solitude above the Arctic Circle in North America and Eurasia. The polar bear has featured prominently on several Royal Canadian Mint collections, including the 2013 release of a 1/4 oz gold coin. Right now, you can buy 2013 Canadian Polar Bear 1/4 oz Gold Coins online at Provident Metals.

Inscriptions on this side of the coin include Canada, 9999, and Fine Gold 1/4 oz Or Pur.
Polar bears are the largest land carnivores in existence in the world today. A male polar bear can weigh as much as 1,543 lbs and is rivaled only by the size of the Kodiak bear. Though it is distantly related to the brown bear species, polar bears have adapted many physical traits that help it survive in the Arctic Circle. For example, its larger padded paws help it swim through the water with ease as it hunts on both land and in the ocean.
The Royal Canadian Mint has previously issued Canadian Polar Bear 1/4 oz Gold Coins with strict mintage limits, sometimes as low as 2,000 coins. Act fast and you can capture this stunning gold bullion piece for yourself.
