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 new coin series portrays three of the most powerful supernatural beings from the realms of water, earth and sky.

The orca is considered the most powerful supernatural being of the undersea realm and this SGaana Jaad (Killer Whale Woman) is a noble matriarch, a fact revealed in the labret that adorns the lower lip of her mouth that also doubles as the orca's blowhole.

A gorgeous keepsake for art collectors and anyone who appreciates the rich cultural heritage of the Haida people. Order today!

Haida artist April White—SGaana Jaad of the Yahqu'iaanaas Raven Clan—has created a mesmerizing image of an orca leaping out of the water. Look closely and you will see a female form hidden beneath the orca “cloak.” She is using her arms and legs in the orca's fins and tail to propel herself forward. Her shoulder is situated directly beneath the orca's eye, and her black hair is flowing along its back, echoed in the orca's black ribs. The ethereal essence of the scene is further enhanced by the silhouette of a full moon created by the circular outline of the design.

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