this little coin may turn into a collection of the whole series.


I added my first gold coin to my granddaughter's bear-themed coin set. It is quite attractive in design and surprisingly well detailed for a 1/10th oz coin.

When looking through the other coins of the O Canada wildlife series coins, I really was taken with the other coins in the set- cougar, bison, bald eagle, wolf, beaver etc. I think the small coins wouldn't be too much of a stretch in budget to assemble, even though the smaller a gold coin gets the larger the percentage of cost over its gold value.


Here she is--my golden grizzly and it looks like time for another submission for a dozen or so new bear coins.

Hi Jackson!

It's been a while since I had a look at your bear set. This post gave me the perfect opportunity to check it out. Let me say that I never knew there so many ways that you could depict a bear! In your sets you display a good deal of diversity in the coins you choose and now you're adding gold coins! I can never look at any of your sets without getting new ideas for mine. I love the creativity you exhibit in your sets. I'm sure your granddaughter will be delighted with this set. All the best.

thanks Gary--by the way, if I recall you are starting a new thematic set also? Coins/medals designed by Laura Frasier? I also was looking at your custom sets--a great proof set to add coins for your "For the Birds" collection is a Cayman Island proof set--I think all 7 or 8 coins depict various tropical birds--gorgeous designs ( I also have an extra flamingo coin or 2 from the Bahamas if you'd like one let me know--I'm submitting a few with my next submission for a "competitive set" and you are welcome to the lower graded one.)
