Scientists have long recognized the role of predators and prey in maintaining nature's delicate balance. Without a predator, prey would overrun the ecosystem they inhabit. Without prey, there would be no food source to support the predators.

This relationship between all members of the food chain is a fundamental truth among Canada's Aboriginal peoples, who have known for millennia that the survival of one species is inextricably linked to the survival of another.

This series explores the predator–prey relationship between the Arctic fox and the Arctic hare, featuring four intricately carved pure gold coins that portray each species in a classic pose and then re-interpreted them as Inuit art. It is a tribute to two remarkable species that have adapted to their extreme Arctic environment to fulfill their special roles as guardians of nature's balance.

About the first coin Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc, the first coin in your subscription features a side-profile view of an Arctic fox (Vulpes lagopus), depicted here in the style of a traditional wildlife portrait. Meticulous engraving recreates the fox's features with extraordinary precision on such a small canvas, giving it a life-like quality that beautifully captures the texture of its thick, winter coat. Standing still in the wintry landscape, the fox's small, rounded ears are alert as it quietly steadies its gaze on its prey beyond the image field.


Elegant display case complete with a built-in magnified display to showcase every coin in full detail!
