Aboriginal art and modern technology combine to create a distinctly unique coin!

Celebrate Aboriginal art from Canada’s West Coast as well as the spiritual and cultural importance of salmon with a stunningly beautiful coin in fine silver with hologram background.

Aboriginal art and modern technology combine to create a distinctly unique coin. Order yours today!

Special features:
•   By striking a hologram into the reverse image field, this creates a shimmering background that mimics water in the sunlight and recreates the salmon’s natural aquatic habitat.
•   Reminiscent of the Two Loons Fine Silver Coin, and not part of a series, this coin offers unique value.
•   You'll enjoy the application of colour to the artistic renderings of four salmon, each positioned in a circular pattern and separated from one another by clusters of roe.
•   Aboriginal art and modern technology come together in this coin–the four painted salmon depicted on the reverse are beautifully set against a colourful hologram background.
•   99.99% pure silver.
•   Limited mintage of 10,000–order yours today!
•   Your coin is GST/HST exempt.

Design:
This coin features original artwork that pays tribute to the salmon–a fish that has long been revered by the First Nations people of Canada's West Coast. Four salmon fish are positioned in a circular pattern and converge near the centre of the image, with clusters of roe between them–an allusion to the salmon's cycle of life. Struck into the image field, a full hologram creates a shimmering background that mimics the reflective qualities of a river in the sunlight; this effect is further enhanced by the application of paint to the fish and roe.

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

                After returning from a recent Inside Passage Cruise to Alaska, I couldn't resist this coin. The design and coloration were exceptional, and the subtle Hologram background added a unique touch.

                      Comments about Royal Canadian Mint 1/2 oz. Fine Silver Hologram Coin - First Nations Art: Salmon (2014):

                      was disappointed with the salmon and so was a bit of a let down for me especially living on Vancouver Island and having been around this type of art all my life and owning some of the art work and carvings myself.
