Description Technical Specs Extended Information
Part of a series of coins depicting First Nations art, this design by Coast Salish artist Darlene Gait pays tribute to the salmon, a fish that has played a crucial role in the development and sustainability of First Nations cultures. The image is enhanced by a hologram background that shimmers wonderfully, alluding to the water that is the natural habitat of the salmon fish. The tradition of First Nations salmon fishing on the West Coast has come under heavy threat in the last ten years; traditional fisheries have collapsed due to the mass salmon-farming industries that place open-net cage farms in First Nations territories. The salmon, a fish long-revered by Coastal First Nations cultures, is seen on this coin with four fish arranged in a circular pattern and meet in the centre, while clusters of roe are nestled between them, making reference to the cycle of life. Vibrant colours enhance the design, while a proof finish completes this half-ounce silver coin. A perfect gift for any lover of First Nations art and culture.
