Each coin in the series tells part of the story – collect them all!

Storytelling has long been a rich oral tradition for Aboriginal cultures. It is said that from the first snowfall to the first clap of thunder, elders impart history, traditions and life lessons to the younger generation through rich narratives filled with allegories and imagery. For the Aboriginal Peoples, these tales – and the messages they convey – form deep connections to who they are, how they relate to the world, their ceremonial rituals and even everyday life.

Often, these stories revolve around characters that possess physical and personality traits akin to humans, animals, plants and even the elements. For the Anishinaabe, an important cultural character is Nanaboozhoo; as a shapeshifting spirit, he teaches right from wrong through his adventures while offering lessons on how to live in harmony with the natural world.

Each coin in the series tells part of the story – collect them all!

Special features:
  •   Your coin was designed by Cyril Assiniboine, a renowned self taught Ojibwa artist and a pow wow dancer who enjoys illustrating the cultural traditions of his people.
  •   Each coin in this unique new series pays homage to the time-honoured cultural tradition of Aboriginal storytelling through its depictions of the beloved Ojibwa Legend of Nanaboozhoo.
  •   Your coin features a gorgeous colour design over engraved surface. Hold it in your hand and move it left to right to allow the light to reflect off the fine silver background!
  •   Your coin is GST/HST exempt with a limited worldwide mintage.

Design:
Your coin was designed by Canadian artist Cyril Assiniboine, who is Ojibwa, and presents an artistic depiction of the Legend of Nanaboozhoo. In the foreground, a side profile of Nanaboozhoo (facing left) shows the cultural hero in flight. He is wearing a traditional Western Ojibwa dress and in his right hand, a wooden arrow is already adorned with the feathers he has snatched from the Thunderbirds. In the background, an adult Thunderbird soars on outstretched wings as he angrily pursues Nanaboozhoo.

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with custom beauty box featuring the original painting.

                      The Royal Canadian Mint always puts out great looking coins, however, I think this time they have surpassed themselves. This is a great looking coin and I would recommend you get yours before they sell out. The colors are stunning and the design itself is beautifully rendered. Cannot go wrong on this purchase.

                        Waited for this one for several months. Well worth the wait. RCM produces some wonderful products for the collector. I am losing my interest in US coins.
