    I collect coins as a hobby and the 2013, fine silver, Arctic fox coin is definitely an exquisite piece in my collection. I purchased the Arctic fox coin from an authorized dealer of coins made by the Royal Canadian Mint.

    The coin comes in a maroon box (reminiscent of a small jewellery box). Inside the box is a certificate of authenticity that verifies that the coin I purchased is indeed authentic. The certifcate of authenticity includes information about the Arctic fox, which I really enjoyed reading because it seemed to give the coin more meaning. The coin itself is in the hollowed out portion of the velvet interior of the box and is encased in a transparent, protective case that matches its shape. The coin is quite large (40mm diameter) but it is this size that allows the design of the coin to be visible and intricate. I picked this particular coin because the image on the coin appears to be more of a carving rather than a stamped image, which to me made it all the more intriguing. The Arctic fox is displayed in two shades of silver in the foreground. In the background there are dashes, dots, and wiggles in four different shades of silver that represent sunshine reflecting off of snow.

    I held the coin under bright light and was overjoyed to see how one shade of silver reflected the light in such a way that the fox seemed to almost come out of the coin and made its eyes look alive. Etched on the outer edge of the coin is an inscription, ‘VULPES LAGOPUS’, which is the Latin name of the Arctic Fox. It is a lovely coin, for sure.
