The grizzly bear (Ursus arctos ssp.) is a large population of the brown bear inhabiting North America. Scientists generally do not use the name grizzly bear but call it the North American brown bear. Multiple morphological forms sometimes recognized as subspecies exist, including the mainland grizzly (Ursus arctos horribilis), Kodiak bear (U. a. middendorffi), peninsular grizzly (U. a. gyas), and the recently extinct California grizzly (U. a. californicus) and Mexican grizzly bear (U. a. nelsoni). On average bears near the coast tend to be larger while inland grizzlies tend to be smaller. The Ussuri brown bear (U. a. lasiotus) inhabiting Russia, Northern China, and Korea is sometimes referred to as the black grizzly, although it is a different subspecies from the bears in America.
The reverse of the coin features the detailed close-up of a strong Gobi Bear, empathized by two wonderful Swarovski inserts. On the bottom of the reverse, the inscription: “URSUSARCTOS GOBIENSIS” – the name of the coin. On the left, the inscription: “WILDLIFE PROTECTION” – the name of the series. On the bottom, the inscription: “2019” – the year of issue. The obverse of the coin features the Mongolian Coat of Arms and the inscriptions: “500 TOGROG” – the face value, “MONGOLIA” – the issue country and “1 OZ 999 SILVER” – the weight and fineness of the Silver.
