Description

This beautiful 3-coin set showcases three different finishes all in one set: proof, antique and colour enamel. Each coin is struck in ultra-high relief with extra-deep contours that have been carved into the coin's surface, which can only be achieved through additional strikes and extensive hand-crafting and polishing. Each coin has a $25 face value and weighs just over one ounce of pure silver.  The coins come displayed in an attractive custom wooden case. Mintage is limited to just 3,000 of each coin.  As pure silver coins issued by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is GST/HST exempt.

 

The Design:
Renowned Canadian artist Andy Everson has created this coin’s bold and unique representation of a singing moon. The moon lights up the night sky as it sends its melodic voice in all four directions as depicted by the four oblong shapes positioned along its circumference. In response, the stars twinkle and dance, as represented by the dots and round contours between the oblong shapes. Every curve and detail is imbued with the rich artistic traditions of the K'ómoks and Kwakwaka'wakw First Nations in British Columbia.


Singing Moon Masks:

Singing is an integral part of First Nations cultures throughout North America—so integral in fact, that many Aboriginal languages don't have a word for "music." People sing day or night to thank Mother Earth for all her gifts; to express love; to heal the sick; to ask for a successful hunt; to seek guidance. Night is a particularly magical time for the K'ómoks and Kwakwaka'wakw First Nations in British Columbia as the community comes together to sing to the rhythmic beat of a drum. As masked dancers breathe movement into the song, the outside world falls away and the melody floats to the sky. Sound waves become moonlight and stars dance to reveal the inter-connectivity of all things.
