2014 1.5 oz Canadian Arctic Fox Silver Coin

For the second issue of a 1 1/2 oz silver coin, the Royal Canadian Mint featured the Arctic Fox species on the reverse. The Arctic Fox is one of the few other mammals, aside from the Polar Bear, capable of surviving in the harsh climate of the Arctic Circle. The animal will burrow into the snow to create a home for itself and feeds on some of the smallest mammals in the region, such as arctic rabbit species. In the design, the Arctic Fox is depicted on the open tundra as some fir trees are visible in the distant background.
