A gorgeous keepsake for art collectors! Order today!

Haida Gwaii is a place of astounding natural beauty; a land of ancient legends where mythical beings move about in the guise of familiar animals from our three-dimensional world. This mesmerizing coin series portrays three of the most powerful supernatural beings from the realms of water, earth and sky, with the Eagle (Guud) gracing this coin as he dances in the sky realm.

The Haida people have a reverence for this parallel reality. It is a world that can only be accessed with purification of body and mind—by fasting, drinking salt water and bathing in the sea. It is an experience that can be expressed and shared through the language of art.

There's a human form hidden beneath the eagle "cloak." He articulates his arms inside the wings so they powerfully rise and fall to propel himself upward with strength and command. As the Eagle readies himself to dance in the sky realm his voice sounds, while his feet in the talons keep the beat of a drum. He wears a dance apron tied around his waist—adorned with a salmon head design—it is at once dance regalia and tail feathers.

Celebrates the distinctive artistic style of Haida formline imagery with red and black enamel. Order today!

About the Design:

Designed by Haida artist April White, Sgaana Jaad of the Yaghu'jaanaas Raven Clan, your coin creates a mesmerizing image of an eagle dancing in the sky. Look closely and you will see a human form hidden beneath the eagle "cloak." He articulates his arms inside the wings so they powerfully rise and fall with power to propel him upward with strength and command. As the Eagle readies himself to dance in the sky realm his voice sounds, while his feet in the talons keep the beat of a drum. He wears a dance apron tied around his waist—adorned with a salmon head design—it is at once dance regalia and tail feathers. The Eagle's night-time flight is illuminated by the light of a full moon that is represented by the circular outline of the design that also frames the eagle's silhouette.

Packaging:

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