Uses distinctive artistic style of Haida formline imagery with red and black enamel. Order today!

Haida Gwaii is a place of astounding natural beauty; a land of ancient legends where mythical beings move about in the guise of familiar animals from our three-dimensional world. This mesmerizing new coin series portrays three of the most powerful supernatural beings from the realms of water, earth and sky.

The orca is considered the most powerful supernatural being of the undersea realm and this SGaana Jaad (Killer Whale Woman) is a noble matriarch, a fact revealed in the labret that adorns the lower lip of her mouth that also doubles as the orca's blowhole.

A gorgeous keepsake for art collectors and anyone who appreciates the rich cultural heritage of the Haida people.

Special Features:
•    First issue in this captivating 3-coin series showcasing Haida art and culture.
•    Beautifully crafted in 99.99% pure silver!
•    Stunningly enhanced with red and black enamel to re-create the distinctive artistic style of Haida formline imagery, hailed as one of the most popular art forms from the Pacific Northwest.
•    A limited work of art! Only 1,500 coins are available worldwide—highly collectible!
•    Also available as a 3-coin subscription, which includes a beautiful wooden case to display all three coins.
•    Your coin is GST/HST exempt.

Design:
Haida artist April White—SGaana Jaad of the Yahqu'iaanaas Raven Clan—has created a mesmerizing image of an orca leaping out of the water. Look closely and you will see a female form hidden beneath the orca “cloak.” She is using her arms and legs in the orca's fins and tail to propel herself forward. Her shoulder is situated directly beneath the orca's eye, and her black hair is flowing along its back, echoed in the orca's black ribs. The ethereal essence of the scene is further enhanced by the silhouette of a full moon created by the circular outline of the design.

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

    Comments about 5 oz. Fine Silver Coin with Enamel - Mythical Realms of the Haida Series: The Orca - Mintage: 1500 (2016):

    Great coin for anyone who wants something unique and very collectable. I have the first two in the series and looking forward to the next coin. I'm fairly new as a collector so didn't subscribe to the series ..Now I have to do it the hard way? Love the simplicity and colours. This coin looks great in my display cabinet with the lights reflecting on it..I use to keep my coins in the back of my closet but find it's such a waste of fine art...Keep up the good work RCM..
