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.
