The Design:

Canadian Métis artist Nathalie Bertin has createda powerful image of a beaver offering a tree branchto an abstract figure. The beaver's size emphasizes the importance of nature to humanity's survival and represents how the beaver taught the Anishinaabe people about the poplar tree's powerfulmedicines; its bark providing the background pattern that reinforces the beaver's teachings.

This coin shows a tender, stylized depiction of a large beaver offering a human a piece of poplar tree bark, symbolizing wisdom. The beaver’s lesson is wisdom, because it encourages one to go beyond the simple acquiring of knowledge, but to draw lessons and meaning from observing the world around us. The beaver is used in this context because of the lesson it taught the Anishinaabe people about the powerful healing properties in poplar tree bark.
