Description Technical Specs Extended Information
Third and final issue in this captivating series showcasing Haida art and culture! Haida Gwaii is a place of astounding natural beauty; a land of ancient legends where mythical beings move about in the guise of familiar animals from our three-dimensional world. This mesmerizing new coin series portrays three of the most powerful supernatural beings from the realms of water, earth and sky.

Haida artist April White—SGaana Jaad of the Yaghu’jaanaas Raven Clan—has created a mesmerizing image of a bear holding what appears to be a human child in his arms. The word “appears” is used here because this supernatural being is known to marry human beings, and the cubs of these unions, by removing their cloaks, can live as human beings. This is the Bear Mother Myth. In this design, Bear is protecting his child. His extended tongue represents communication as he shares his wisdom with his offspring under the light of a full moon—teaching him bear songs and stories as he prepares him for life without his father.

An original and upscale keepsake for art collectors and anyone who has ever travelled to the Pacific Northwest and been captivated by these remote islands and the rich cultural heritage of the Haida people.
