In English 925 silver is written as 92.5% or sterling silver. It is not a mistake.

Under the Canadian coin; Composition is actually 99.99% pure or (.9999). It is a coin in a series called 20 for 20 not the arctic. Coin 1 was the maple leaf 2011, Coin 2 was the canoe 2011, Coin 3 was the polar bear 2012, Coin 4 was the farewell to the penny 2012, Coin 5 was the holiday reindeer 2012, Coin 6 was the hockey player 2013, Coin 7 was the wolf 2013, Coin 8 is the iceberg 2013. The mintage for the iceberg is also only 225,000 not 250,000.

Hope you find what your looking for!!!

Hi!

Sorry if it doesn't fit in the translation, but in French I was saying something like "this coin is part of a "kind of series" started last year [...] " since it seems that some themes came back each year (Two coins related to the Artic and will be a second one issued for Christmas too).

However, I totally agree for the rest of the corrections. ;)

Kind regards,
