Flower Moon puts nature’s life-giving energy on full display! Order today!

In May, fresh new plants emerge from the ground, and buds appear on branches that seemed barren just days before. This hidden force is one of the most powerful healing medicines on Earth—a realm that cannot be seen, but is certainly there. It animates all things, and breathes life into us. Once we recognize our spiritual essence, we begin to treat ourselves and all of our relations with the same reverence as the one Source where all life originates.

An ideal coin 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 tree whose bare branches are dotted with the vivid green of new growth. A detail of a springtime flower is on the left, its vibrant colours showcasing the life-giving powers that animate all of nature. 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.

Did you know…
  • In Anishinaabe tradition, every plant is medicine, and many are particularly potent in spring. Yarrow (Achillea millefolium L.) is a popular remedy for a hoarse voice. The young plant is chewed, or brewed as a tea and then gargled like mouthwash. The small cluster of springtime flowers sitting atop the plant’s stalk is sometimes called “porridge on a stick.”
  • Tobacco is a central medicine in Anishinaabe tradition, and is used as an offering during every activity, ceremony and prayer. It acts as a conduit to communicate with nature’s unseen energies—the spirit world. Other key medicines include cedar, sage and sweetgrass.
  • The moon exerts far more gravitational force on the Earth than the sun because of its close proximity. The best-known effect is the ocean’s tides, but science is revealing the moon’s powerful influence on the Earth’s crust, its molten core, the atmosphere, even human physiology!
  • Lunar cycles have been used by North America's indigenous cultures to track time.  Some have used the 13 large scutes on a turtle's back as a calendar.  Each moon has a distinct name that reflects the seasonal changes, and has a specific teaching attached to it. Many variations exist, but one of the most prevalent is the Anishinabe Thirteen Grandmother Moon Teachings.
  • “Anishinaabe” means “the good beings” or “original person.” It is the ethnic term for the Algonquian tribes of the Great Lakes, such as the Ojibway, Algonquin, Ottawa, Nipissing, and others, and is spelled and pronounced in various ways. Although the tribes’ cultures and languages are similar, each has its own distinct leadership and identity.
  • Anishinaabe art is often referred to as “woodland art.” It promotes Anishinaabe culture by depicting traditional scenes in what are commonly known as “legend paintings” or “medicine paintings.”

Packaging:

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