Fourth and final coin in the series, order yours today!

The goose hunt has been an integral part of Aboriginal life for thousands of years. Every autumn and spring, communities located along migration paths would turn to the sky for this treasured food source that could provide as much as four months' supply for some coastal communities.

Hunters would read the weather to anticipate the arrival of the geese, even watch the melting ice and exposed water to predict where the geese would land. The hunt often lasted for days and was a special time of sharing between generations, highlighted by rites of passage as young men hunted on their own for the first time.

Special features:
•  A wonderful keepsake to celebrate one's "brotherhood of hunters," and pay tribute to the special times shared between men and boys during the annual ritual of goose hunting.
•  A unique coin showcasing the rich Aboriginal heritage of North America—the perfect gift for history buffs, anyone with a passion for First Nations culture and traditions.
•  Limited to 10,000 coins worldwide—a must-have work of art stunningly crafted in 99.99% pure silver.
•  GST/HST exempt.

Design:
Cree artist Tim Whiskeychan has created a wonderful design of a traditional Aboriginal hunter taking aim at a pair of Canada geese with his bow and arrow. He is wearing traditional Cree clothing. The hunter is hiding behind tall grass that would typically border a body of water where boreal forest meets grasslands. The snow melt on the water suggests this is a springtime goose hunt.

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

        This is the last of the Hunter series. Wish there were more! The coin design tells the story in surprising detail. Very well designed and executed in silver. A great gift for a goose hunter! And a challenge to hunt geese the same way as shown on the coin.
