Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
The image on the reverse of this substantial coin is based on an original wooden carving by Haida artist Carol Young for the Royal Canadian Mint. The "moon mask" carving is a popular one amongst many First Nations cultures, referencing "Grandmother Moon"; it is the notion that the crone, a symbol of feminine wisdom, is symbolically tied to the ripe full moon. There is a connection between the round sphere of the moon and the elder woman's role as leader, sage, and guardian of a clan's history. This coin is handcrafted, resulting in a phenomenal level of three-dimensionality that remains faithful to the original sculpture, right down to the original wood grain. Struck in 99.99% pure gold, this (over) one troy ounce coin boasts a very limited mintage of 500 coins worldwide, making it a worthy acquisition for any savvy collector. It would also make a thoughtful and impressive gift for any First Nations history and culture enthusiast in your life.
