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

Since time immemorial, First Nations people have viewed art as much more than simply one person's creative expression. More importantly, art has always been a means to preserve their history and traditions, and to honour the natural world that supports them. First Nations people are ever cognizant of their surroundings. They carefully observe the natural processes taking place around them, draw lessons from what they see, and preserve these teachings in art.

In the traditions of his ancestors, Richard Hunt has crafted a wonderful story about a family of eagles nurturing, loving and growing. But within this narrative lies the call for all parents to cherish their young, just as eagle parents work tirelessly to nurture their young; for therein lies the future of the world. It is also a reminder of nature's abundance, a bounty that should never be abused nor taken for granted, just as the eagle only takes what it needs to feed its family.

Slow processing service

The product itself is beautiful. The processing procedure was very slow. When I tried to call in to check on the order it was very difficult getting through. I had to try several times. The line cut me off several times. Also I thought I would have to sign for the parcel but it was left in my mailbox.

Found one of the prints of the face of this new coin. Will combine them in a frame with matting. Did this with another Richard Hunt coin Two Loons...results were outstanding.

Hello, will this be the last coin in the series "First Nations Art"? The only similar coins I could find are "Salmon" 2014 and "Dreamcatcher" 2013. But no coin of the year 2016 fit in this .5 oz and hologram series.

Hello, as of now we do not have a plan to continue this series however this may change in future.
