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 second issue in this four-coin series gives the account how the hunters struck the bear, but only managed to wound it. This is why leaves turn red in autumn.

Special features:
•  2nd issue in this dazzling four-coin series!
•  Glows in the dark—just like stars! Turn off the lights and 7 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.
•  Dazzling colour brings the richness of First Nations traditions to life. It’s easy to imagine the powerful scene as brave members of the Plains Ojibwa band prepared to slay the bear in 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.
•  Your packaging also glows in the dark. All four boxes in the dark make up the Big Dipper.
•  Your coin is GST/HST exempt.

About the design:
Western Ojibwa artist Cyril Assiniboine has created a stunning image of hunters as they prepare to slay the bear as it tries to hide in a cave in a star-filled sky. The design showcases the hunters’ impressive traditional Saulteaux dress, complete with imposing face paint, weaponry and ceremonial shield with bear claw motif.

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