Sterling Silver and Niobium Coin - Hunter's Moon (2011)
2nd issue in the popular series!
A Royal Canadian Mint first! Limited Edition coin features a niobium metal inset with unique coloring that reflects the theme of the coin.
By undertaking the technical complexities of producing a niobium coin, these Royal Canadian Mint “firsts” set the bar high for unmatched colour and lustre. The niobium core was selectively oxidized to create a unique finish—no two coins are exactly alike!
An Algonquin hunter crouches by the light of a full moon, ready and waiting for his quarry to appear while rustcoloured hues selectively applied to the niobium core enhance this coin’s autumn theme.
Coin is encapsulated and presented in a wooden flip case, lined with flock and protected by a black sleeve.
Timekeeper for the Algonquin people.
In North America, the First Nations tribes that comprise the Algonquin people looked to the moon to track time. They assigned a name to every full moon to reflect the seasonal activities that accompanied each cycle. Theirs was a vast territory that extended from Lake Superior to the eastern seaboard, resulting in a variety of names throughout the Algonquin community. The buck, hunter, wolf and pink full moons represent summer, autumn, winter and spring.
