Coin design:
An Inuit woman with her baby looking over her shoulder from inside the hood of her amauti.

The warmth of a mother’s love.
Every child loves to snuggle up to its mother. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the Arctic where Inuit mothers must keep their children safe and warm against one of the harshest environments on earth. The amauti is a parka ingeniously designed for that purpose. It has a large hood and pouch to carry a baby and free up a busy mother’s hands; and loose shoulders so the child can easily be moved from the back to the front.

The amauti has been a fixture in Inuit life for centuries and is still common today. Although its material has evolved away from traditional animal sources and its style and decoration vary between communities, every mother cherishes her amauti for the close physical contact it provides between her and her child— the warmth and affection that are a treasured cornerstone of Inuit society.
