Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
This breathtaking $100 14-karat gold coin recounts one of the most well-known legends of the Pacific Northwest—how Raven brought light to the world. It’s a story that has been told over thousands of years and while regional variations do exist, this exceptional masterpiece captures the climactic moment when Raven is in possession of the light. The Chief of the Heavens keeps the daylight ball in a box. The Raven tricks him, takes the luminous ball, and flies skyward. The ball breaks apart, creating the moon, the stars, and the sun.

No other metal captures the essence of light like gold, and this spectacular gold coin has been selectively coloured to create dramatic contrast between Raven’s black plumage and the shining ball. With a low mintage of just 2,000 coins, it is also likely to sell out quickly.

K’ómoks and Kwakwa ka 'wakw artist Andy Everson has combined classic formline shapes and modern graphic elements to create a powerful portrait of Raven holding the light in its beak. Two side profiles come together to form a frontal view of Raven’s face while its wings sweep down along the outer edges of the coin to cradle the shining ball of light, its luminescence radiating outward in all directions.
