First Strikes: The first Majestic Polar Bears struck in 2024.

Continuing the narrative established on the first (2022) Premium Bullion in special packaging, the 2024 edition features a tender scene of a polar bear and her almost independent cub nuzzling in their Arctic habitat. Each investment-grade coin has been crafted in 99.99% pure silver with a minimum guaranteed weight of one ounce, and First Strikes hold the distinction of having been struck on the first day of production, all of them bearing the Canadian effigy of His Majesty King Charles III on the obverse.

Direct from the Royal Canadian Mint: Premium Bullion puts the purest precious metals in your hands.


  • First strikes in 2024. Struck on the first day of production, each First Strikes coin comes in a First Strikes branded card holder with removable capsule and a clear resealable envelope. On the back of the card, an easy-to-scan QR code allows quick access to an informative website, loveSILVER, that welcomes the reader to the world of bullion.
  • Specially handled during the manufacturing process. Produced with a guaranteed weight, each uncirculated Premium Bullion coin was specially handled during the manufacturing process and comes in Royal Canadian Mint-authorized packaging.

On the back of the card, an easy-to-scan QR code is a quick link to an informative website, loveSILVER that welcomes the reader to the world of bullion. The branded card sets your fine silver First Strikes: Majestic Polar Bears coin apart: it identifies it as one of the pieces struck on the first day of production.


The polar bear paw prints on each coin’s reverse are a collection-wide design feature and are exclusive to this line of Premium Bullion coins.


Each coin features the Canadian effigy of His Majesty King Charles III, marking a new royal era for Canada’s coins.


Vivid radial lines fill the field to create a dynamic sunburst finish, which adds movement and energy to the Arctic scene.


A polar bear cub stays with its mother for the first two or three years of life. Once it strikes out on its own, the subadult faces many challenges as it continues to hone its hunting skills, but survival rates improve once it reaches adulthood and is ready to mate—that’s four to six years of age for females, while the prime breeding years for males begin around age 10.

The reverse design by Canadian artist W. Allan Hancock shows a polar bear (Ursus maritimus) mother and her almost independent cub nuzzling in their Arctic habitat. Paired with paw print markings that reflect the theme, the tender scene is set against radial lines that create a dramatic sunburst finish, while the coin’s purity and weight, the word “CANADA” and the year “2024” are all inscribed along the outer edge. The obverse features a sunburst finish behind the effigy of His Majesty King Charles III by Canadian artist Steven Rosati.


The Royal Canadian Mint is known as one of the most reputable mints in the world. The Ottawa Branch of the Royal Mint opened in 1908 and was renamed The Royal Canadian Mint in 1931 when control was transferred to the Canadian government. The Royal Canadian Mint is renowned for producing some of the highest quality and purity of gold and silver bullion coins and bars in the world. Their high standards for excellence and quality allowed them to be the first refinery to manufacture 9999 fine gold bullion coins in 1982, as well as the first to reach 99999 fine gold purity in 1999.
