History and culture run deep in Canada’s North, where the ice-carved landscape is beautiful, fearsome and endlessly fascinating. With its selectively gold-plated reverse, this square-shaped coin heads due north, to the home of the stately caribou and the Inuit landmarks that traditionally guide the way.

This 2018 $3 square-shaped fine silver coin is the second of a three coin series featuring Canadian Coasts. The coin is dated 2018 with a $3 denomination and weighs just over one quarter ounce of pure silver. Adding to its collectability, the mintage is limited to just 5,000. As a pure silver coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is HST/GST exempt.

A familiar feature of navigational charts, a compass rose lies at the center of the Arctic-themed reverse by Maurade Baynton, where it represents a history of exploration in Canada’s North. Two finely engraved icons of the Arctic surround the compass rose: the caribou and the inunnguaq, a form of inuksuk. Seen in profile, the antlered icon of the northern wilderness is a fundamental part of the traditional way of life in many communities, where the caribou has sustained life for millennia. Selective gold plating frames the reverse and also places special emphasis on the inuksuk, a stone landmark that has traditionally carried spiritual and practical meaning for the Inuit. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
