Third coin in the series, collect all three!

In an environment as extreme as the Arctic, one would expect people to hunt as many animals as possible in order to stock up on provisions. But in Inuit culture, as well as all aboriginal cultures around the world, living in harmony with nature is paramount.

Countless Inuit legends passed down through generations of oral storytelling reflect the profound understanding that all of humanity is irrevocably reliant on the earth. Many stories speak of mystical beings who oversee people's activities to ensure nature's laws are respected. One such legend is Sedna, the goddess of the sea. If a hunter takes more than his fair share, Sedna will not permit the animals to offer themselves.

The captivating narrative on this coin shows a seal emerging from the ice suggesting that Sedna is indeed pleased and will provide the hunters with all the animals they need to thrive.
