6500

Features a beautifully coloured niobium insert! 2nd in the series!

Distance and proportion melt away on the great expanse of Arctic ice—and the Inuit fisherman would disappear into the landscape if it were not for the brownish-grey earth tones of his animal hide parka. Even then, it would take a trained eye to spot the dot of contrast against the frigid white that defines the Arctic for most of the year.

Special features
  •  Your coin is the 2nd in a series featuring contemporary aboriginal art incorporated in a colorful design using oxidised niobium to diffract light and cause brilliant colours naturally.
  •  Your coin features an innovative minting process that incorporates a niobium insert struck into the coin’s silver core. The niobium is selectively coloured using a unique oxidization process produced naturally by niobium’s distinct properties.
  •  Limited mintage of 6,500.

Design
The coin’s reverse design is by Inuit artist Ulaayu Pilurtuut. Pilurtuut’s design shows a joyous fisherman celebrating his latest catch. In the background stands the fisherman’s protective igloo. Rendered in a contemporary Inuit style, it captures the lighthearted spirit and humour commonly associated with this ancient culture.

Packaging
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded black clamshell case lined with a black flock and protected by a black sleeve.

A thoughtful gift and beautiful addition to any collection featuring Aboriginal art and culture.
