A FIRST: Glow-in-the-dark technology on a silver coin!

The seven stars that make up the Big Dipper are arguably one of the most recognized formations in the night sky. They are visible year-round from northern latitudes, and have inspired countless legends around the globe. Many First Nations legends describe the Big Dipper as a great bear who is hunted ceaselessly by three hunters. The third issue in this four-coin series recounts how the hunters tracked the bear across the earth, and bravely followed it into the sky.

A wonderful keepsake for star gazers and history buffs; anyone with a passion for Canada's rich ancestral past and its mystifying First Nations traditions and legends.

Special features:
•   Your packaging also glows in the dark. All four boxes in the dark make up the Big Dipper.
•   The third coin in this mesmerizing four-coin series!
•   Glows in the dark—just like stars! Turn off the lights and see the stars depicting three hunters in pursuit of the great bear magically appear. Innovative glow-in-the-dark technology will not wear out—ever! For best effect, simply recharge the coin under a light.
•   Mesmerizing colour brings the richness of First Nations traditions to life. It's easy to imagine the powerful scene that played out as brave members of the Plains Ojibwa band set out to hunt the bear under a star-filled sky.
•   Pure silver starlight! Not all the stars are coloured. Four of them shine with the perfection of
99.99% pure silver to enhance the twinkling sky.
•   A wonderful keepsake for star gazers and history buffs; anyone with a passion for Canada's rich ancestral past and its mystifying First Nations traditions and legends.
•   GST/HST exempt.

Coin design:
Western Ojibwa artist Cyril Assiniboine has created a stunning image of hunters as they track the bear to the end of the earth. The design showcases the hunters' impressive traditional Saulteaux dress, complete with imposing face paint and weaponry.

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a custom beauty box that glows in the dark!

    Very nice coin and I like the theme, but the promised glow in the dark is disappointing.
    I have all four in the series and none have good glow in the dark feature.

    I will return all these coins for a refund. I tried the coins in a dark room and was utterly disappointed with the pledged shining star charts.

    I collect coins for content and beauty. the depth of design could have been stronger for such an important piece for it is difficult to read as such. most people I show it to say the same. Also the ring circle cut into the buffalo this should not happen with good design concept. Otherwise I like the coin .
