Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
1st coin in a new series featuring contemporary aboriginal art incorporated in a colorful design using oxidised niobium to diffract light and cause brilliant colours, naturally.

The coin features an innovative minting process that incorporates a niobium insert struck into the coin’s silver core. The niobium is selectively coloured using a unique oxidization process produced naturally by niobium’s distinct properties. Niobium is used in superalloys, superconducting magnets and is commonly used to strengthen steel. The ability to make unique colours directly from niobium, make it an interesting metal for coins.

The reverse design is by Inuit artist Ulaayu Pilurtuut. Pilurtuut’s design shows a joyous mother celebrating her latest catch with her baby in her amautik. Rendered in a contemporary Inuit style, it captures the lighthearted spirit and humour commonly associated with this ancient practice.
