Cel­e­brat­ing Canada’s grandeur

Canadian Geographic - - CONTENTS -

A griz­zly rests on a bed of sedge in the Khutzey­ma­teen Griz­zly Bear Sanc­tu­ary, B.C. From the Coast Tsimshian peo­ples’ word K’tzim-a-deen, Khutzey­ma­teen trans­lates to “shel­tered place of fish and bears.” Founded in 1994, the refuge is co­man­aged by the prov­ince and lo­cal First Na­tions.

This pic­ture ap­pears on a coin in the Royal Cana­dian Mint’s Cel­e­brat­ing Canada’s 150th se­ries. In col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Mint, Cana­dian Geo­graphic sourced images for the 13-coin set. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit mint.ca/cana­di­an­geo­graphic.
