First coin in a new series! Order today!

Canada's Indigenous people view every aspect of nature as a living relation that plays an active role in their lives, and Grandmother Moon is ever-present, making 13 appearances throughout the year as she watches over Mother Earth's children and lights up their paths. Every moon brings a new teaching, and this coin illustrates how Spirit Moon is a time to honour the stillness and reflect upon our place within creation. Our thoughts turn to the eagle, the messenger that carries our prayers to the Creator. As our spirituality grows, so does our respect for this powerful bird. Those who have earned the honour may wear a headdress as they pray, and we give thanks whenever the eagle shows itself—healing and support are on the way!

An ideal gift for someone who enjoys Indigenous art. Order today!

Design:

Algonquin artist Frank Polson has created a captivating image of a full moon filling the sky as it sits low on the horizon behind a leafless tree. To the left, a man wears an eagle headdress as he honours the majestic messenger and calls upon it to carry his prayers to the Creator. The use of bold lines, and the insertion of vivid colour within black areas as if to reveal what lies within, is a signature design element in woodland art. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Packaging:

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