Description

This is an extremely low mintage complete set of all four $5 niobium and sterling silver coins issued by the Royal Canadian Mint. Only 200 complete sets were officially issued in a unique presentation case. Each niobium core was selectively oxidized to create a unique finish.  


This series is based on the theme “Timekeeper for the Algonquin people”
In North America, the First Nations tribes that comprise the Algonquin people looked to the moon to track time. They assigned a name to every full moon to reflect the seasonal activities that accompanied each cycle. Theirs was a vast territory that extended from Lake Superior to the eastern seaboard, resulting in a variety of names throughout the Algonquin community. The buck, hunter, wolf and pink full moons represent summer, autumn, winter and spring.


Coins Included in Set:

  • 2011 Buck Moon - A young buck stands poised before a full Summer moon
  • 2011 Hunters Moon - a hunter patiently tracking his quarry
  • 2012 Wolf Moon - a howling wolf set against a backdrop of a full Winter moon
  • 2012 Full Moon - a cluster of phlox blossoming before a Spring moon
