First coin in a new and unique 3-coin hologram series, order your subscription today!

Canada's three natural realms of land, sky, and sea mingle in a landscape of unmatched grandeur. Similarly, its people—First Nations and modern inhabitants alike—though culturally distinct, overlap within this landscape in a unique experience of shared history and nationhood. The Royal Canadian Mint proudly launches a new series of 1-ounce silver hologram coins that celebrate this interconnectedness through the stunning artwork of West Coast artist Andy Everson.

A beautiful gift for someone who enjoys First Nations art! Order your subscription today!

Special features:

•   This 1-ounce 99.99% pure silver coin is the first issue in the Royal Canadian Mint's unique 3-coin hologram subscription featuring the striking artwork of celebrated Canadian artist Andy Everson.
•   This subscription celebrates interconnections within the natural world, between Canadians and their landscape, and among Canada's multicultural people. The first release, dedicated to the theme of "Land," adopts a beaver as its central motif while ingeniously incorporating Canada's four seasons. In keeping with the theme, each element of the design blends into the next. The coin's hologram treatment perfectly highlights this sense of connection and transition.
•   Following the first coin in the series Interconnections: Land - The Beaver will be the following coins:  Interconnections: Air - The Thunderbird and Interconnections: Sea - The Orca
•   The entire reverse side of these stunning Royal Canadian Mint coins are struck as a hologram. The dynamic design uses rainbow-coloured transitional images atop duotone rays to bring motion and light to the beautifully designed reverse image.
•   A K'ómoks First Nation drummer, ceremonial dancer, and artist, Andy Everson is an innovative artist whose arresting images blend traditional, modern, and even pop culture motifs.
•   An exceptional gift and distinguished collectible for those who love fine art, unique coins, First Nations themes, and Canadiana.
•   GST/HST exempt!

Design:
The reverse design by Canadian artist Andy Everson presents the theme of "Land." Its central motif is a beaver, stylized in the tradition of Everson's K'ómoks and Kwakwaka'wakw ancestors. This image is framed by six maple leaves which, individually, represent autumn. Together, the six leaves form a winter snowflake. The negative spaces between the leaves are the raindrops of spring. Rays emanating from this central image represent the sunshine of summer.

The Interconnections series celebrates the relationship between Canada's three natural realms: land, sky, and sea. This first release, dedicated to "Land," adopts a beaver as its central motif while ingeniously incorporating Canada's four seasons. This central motif is framed within a wreath of six maple leaves. The iconic importance of the maple leaf to Canada is well known, but this image also points specifically to the season of autumn, when maple leaves are at their most colourful. Arranged in a six-point pattern, the leaves also become a winter snowflake. Nestled between the leaves are six stylized raindrops, celebrating spring. Finally, rays of sunlight emanate from the image, symbolizing summer. Like the seasons themselves, each element of the design blends into the next. The design's hologram treatment augments this sense of connection and transition.

A nod to Canada's pragmatic, hard-working people, the beaver is one of Canada's oldest symbols as well as a key figure in First Nations mythologies. Canada's exploration and settlement by Europeans was also deeply influenced by this unique animal, who drew the earliest fur traders to Canada's eastern shores.

It is highly fitting that an artist representative of the traditional guardians of Vancouver Island's eastern "Land of Plenty" would design a series celebrating the connection between land, sea, air, and the people whose lives overlap within this environment. Andy (Na̱gedzi) Everson is a member of British Columbia's K'ómoks First Nation. Through dance, drumming, and art, Everson honours the traditions of his K'ómoks and Kwakwaka'wakw ancestors. He has travelled internationally as a ceremonial dancer, sharing First Nations traditions. It was through ceremonial dance that Everson began his first serious forays into art, designing pieces for potlatches. Today, he is known for his bold, eye-catching, and thought-provoking designs that often meld traditional motifs with references from popular culture.

Packaging:
Your coins are encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.

I thought the Beaver was dazzling the Thunderbird litterly jumps off the coin the colors are amazing. I am dumbfounded that this subscription has not sold out. Any collector would be proud to own and display these coins. This collection is some of R C M'S best work and a credit to the First Nations.

    This coin is very unique, and by the look of the pictures, they only get better. I believe this is the first time a holographic surface appeared on a Canadian coin. I am anxious to see the rest of them. Top notch quality!

        I ordered this subscription and now that I have received the first coin I can hardly wait to see the next coins.This coin is actually more beautiful in person than in the picture.The photos almost make the coin look like it is colourized but when you hold the coin and tilt it in the light it is more than just colour.The hologram gives it dimension and a more subtle colouring.I think the mint does a great job of showcasing native artwork and legends,I just wish they would still have the longer printed inserts that told the full stories of the coins.I enjoyed reading the inserts as much as looking at the coins and I wonder why the mint cut back on the printed material.I hope they bring the full descriptions back in 2015.
