The RCM created this set to commemorate the elusive arctic fox, whose natural range is threatened by the red fox and gray wolf. Populations of these competing animals have migrated north as temperatures slowly increase year after year in the Arctic. The arctic fox depends on the white snowy backdrop for camouflage, and otherwise becomes an easy dinner for the stronger northern gray wolf. These coins have a wave in the reflective field that was created during the stamping process. As more sets are submitted for grading, perhaps we will get a better idea of the quality of these coins as the sample size increases.

This small collection took a little longer than anticipated because I was not 100% focused on this set. Serendipity and luck brought the first of these PF70 coins to my collection, and the others I had to patiently await their arrival over the next half decade. Currently, a few of these little gems are POP 1 pieces. I hope you enjoy this set and it's presentation!
