  • With a limited mintage of only 7,500, this coin is sure to be sought after by collectors.
  • An exceptional gift and distinguished collectible for those who love fine art, unique coins, First Nations themes, and Canadiana.


DESIGN:
The reverse image by Canadian artist Andy Everson presents the theme of “Land.” Its central motif is a beaver, stylized in the tradition of Everson’s K’ómoks and Kwakwaka’wakw ancestors. This image is framed by a design representing all four seasons; six maple leaves which, individually, represent autumn. Together, the six leaves form a winter snowflake. The negative spaces between the leaves are the raindrops of spring. Rays emanating from this central image represent the sunshine of summer. The entire reverse is a full-colour hologram, lending movement and light to this highly symbolic image.
