Design:
Designed by Canadian artist Jori van der Linde, the $1 coin’s reverse features the artist’s rendition of the gold discovery that set off the Klondike Gold Rush. Under the shining sun, Keish (“Skookum” Jim Mason), Shaaw Tlàa (Kate Carmack), Kàa Goox (Dawson Charlie), all of whom were of Lingít and Tagish descent, and George Carmack can be seen panning for gold at the edge of Gàh Dek (Rabbit Creek/Bonanza Creek). A powerful symbol of cultural revitalization, the pictorial symbol for Ëdhä Dädhëchą (Moosehide Slide) is highlighted in red and white on selectively coloured coins; it appears on the opposite side of the creek, and represents the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in and their deep, abiding connection to the land. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know?
  • Chief Isaac was the leader of the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in during the Klondike Gold Rush and in the years that followed. During the early years following the Klondike Gold Rush, Chief Isaac understood that the changes brought by newcomers would have a great impact on his people’s lives and culture. In an act of foresight, he “cached” many of the community’s traditional songs and dances, sharing them with Alaskan neighbours.
  • An iconic drum, seen held by Chief Isaac in historical photos, featured a moose-shaped symbol of Ëdhä Dädhëchą (Moosehide Slide), which has been re-created on this piece and the commemorative $1 circulation coin. It is an important icon of perseverance and cultural revitalization, one that represents the inherent belonging of the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in to the land.

Packaging:
The newest addition to your collection comes encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box.
