Growing Up - Brown Bear silver coin (2023 Numiscollect)
The third coin in Numiscollect’s ‘Growing Up’ series is available now, and after the lion and the stallion, we have the impressive Brown Bear. The series features an adult animal on the reverse face, struck in smartminted high-relief, and with a black proof finish. The obverse focuses more on the young animal in its natural habitat, as well as depicting it with its parent.
There are no changes to that layout for this release, with the reverse face picturing one of the big, powerful animals walking towards the viewer, while a cub, in simplified form, stares off into the distance. The obverse shows a pair of cubs by a river, with their reflections showing in the water – a series signature design element – all set in a wider panorama. A nice looking coin, it does a good job of continuing the series. It’s boxed with a C.O.A. and available now.
While this is a two-ounce coin with a 45 mm diameter, this isn’t the only format this series uses. Along with this coin comes a five-ounce version of the previous Stallion release, again, just as they did with the Lion coin. That one is also available now. The mintage of the two-ounce coin is set at 333 pieces, while the bigger coin is capped at just 149.
